What's Citronellol?

Citronellol functions as a fragrance ingredient, fragrance enhancer, and insect repellent in cosmetic and personal care products. It's derived from plants such as rose, lemongrass, and geranium. The EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetic Database rates citronellol 5 on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest risk to health and 10 being the highest. EWG's main concern is the “possible human immune system toxicant or allergen.”
