Why are individual fragrance compounds sometimes listed on Dr. Hauschka products?
In addition to the required term ‘Fragrance (Parfum)’, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products also specify individual fragrance components (e.g., citral, limonene or geraniol) in the ingredient declarations. A note (*made from natural essential oils) on these components indicates their natural origin as part of the essential oils used. Dr. Hauschka products are not fragranced by any synthetic components. Since 2005, it has been legally required to declare the scent components to provide information for people with fragrance allergies. There are 26 fragrance compounds that must be listed on skin care products regardless if the fragrances are synthetic or natural. Even the naturally occurring fragrance components of the essential oils in Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products must also be stated.
