BOTANICAL NAME:Citrus bergamia
The fresh, fruity scent of bergamot is a key ingredient in classic colognes. Bergamot’s cleansing properties complement tea tree’s purifying actions while moderating its medicinal aroma. Bergaptene-free bergamot has been re-distilled to remove most of the constituents that can accelerate sunburn.
Generally considered a safe oil; however, it is not recommended for use with children five years old and under. Direct sunlight and UV light should be avoided up to 72 hours after application.
