Has this ingredient benefits for the skin?


I was reading about essential oils that are not irritate your skin; I have found this ingredient. Is it true this information about Helichrysum Italicum? Purifying and soothing. A first choice addition to a calming skincare blend and excellent support for the respiratory system.

Many thanks.

Thank you for this question!

The major constituents of the oil are cedrene, curcumene, geranyl acetate, limonene, nerol. All of these are common allergens and irritants. Overall, any plat oil that has a strong smell is almost certain to contain common irritants/allergens. It does not mean that it will certainly irritate your skin, but the risk is there and it's definitely better to avoid it if your skin is sensitive
