Aesop products contain essential oils, selected for the benefits they can offer the skin. Like all the botanical extracts used in our formulations, they are carefully considered and evaluated for safety and efficacy prior to their inclusion.
Essential oils are complex mixtures, and a number of naturally occurring compounds found in essential oils are classified as allergens according to European Union (EU) cosmetic regulation.
The presence of any allergens within a product is clearly labelled—forming part of the ingredient list—in accordance with EU cosmetic regulation.
Further, when formulating our products we take careful note of the findings and recommendations issued by the International Fragrance Association (IFRA), ensuring the levels of all essential oils we use—and therefore the allergens they may contain—fall well below the limits recommended by IFRA and other worldwide regulatory agencies.
