Safety Information:Tisserand and Young indicate that there is a moderate risk of skin sensitization when using Jasmine Absolute topically, and they recommend a dermal maximum of 0.7%. "Jasmine absolute appears to be a moderate-risk skin sensitizer that has caused problems in 0-1.2% of people with dermatitis when patch tested at 2 or 3%." Adulterants may potentially be the cause of some of the reported sensitization. Reading Tisserand and Young's full profile is recommended.
