Bergamot essential oil has bergaptene which should be protected from sunlight because it gets poisonous when exposed to sunlight. It should be stored in air-light dark bottles and in dark places. A user should avoid direct sun exposure after applying this over the skin until it gets completely absorbed into the skin.

 

TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Safety summary

·        Hazards: Phototoxic (moderate risk); may be photocarcinogenic.

·        Contraindications (dermal): If applied to the skin at over maximum use level, skin must not be exposed to sunlight or sunbed rays for 12 hours.

·        Cautions: Old or oxidized oils should be avoided.

·        Maximum dermal use level 0.4% to avoid phototoxicity.

Because of its limonene content, oxidation of bergamot oil should be avoided by storage in a dark, airtight container in a refrigerator. The addition of an antioxidant to preparations containing it is recommended.

Regulatory guidelines

Has GRAS status. IFRA recommends that, for application to areas of skin exposed to sunshine, bergamot oil be limited to a maximum of 0.4% in the final product, except for bath preparations, soaps and other wash-off products. In Europe, essential oils containing furanocoumarins must be used so that the total level of bergapten will not exceed.

Organ-specific effects

·        Adverse skin reactions: No irritation was observed when 2% bergamot oil was patch tested in 1,200 dermatitis patients. In a 48-hour occlusive patch test on 50 Italian volunteers, the highest concentration of bergamot oil producing no adverse reaction was 30%. When similarly tested at 10%, it produced three reactions in 590 eczema patients. Tested at 30% on 25 volunteers, bergamot oil was not sensitizing. Of 1,200 dermatitis patients patch tested, two were sensitive to 2% bergamot oil. In a study of 200 consecutive dermatitis patients, three were sensitive to 2% bergamot oil on patch testing. Autoxidation products of (þ)-limonene can cause skin sensitization.

Systemic effects

·        Acute toxicity: No information found for unrectified bergamot oil, though rectified bergamot oil is distinctly nontoxic.

·        Carcinogenic/anticarcinogenic potential: Bergamot oil was not mutagenic in either a Bacillus subtilis rec-assay or an Ames test. Bergamot terpenes induced glutathione S-transferase activity to more than 2.5 times control level in mouse tissues. Bergamot oil is cytotoxic to neuroblastoma cells. Bergamot oil inhibited formation of the carcinogen NDMA in vitro by more than 70%. (þ)-Limonene displays anticarcinogenic activity.

There is a need to raise public awareness to the phototoxic dangers of bergamot oil by adequate labeling and additional information. Assuming a maximum bergapten content of 0.33%, and to comply with the 15 ppm (0.0015%) SCCNFP guideline for bergapten, expressed bergamot oil should not be used at more than 0.45%, which correlates with the IFRA recommended maximum use level of 0.4%. A treated oil, sometimes rectified by distillation, is obtainable as bergapten-free
