Specifications
Oxidation products of Limonene, especially hydroperoxides, have been demonstrated to be potent sensitizers.
d-, l- and dl-Limonene and natural products containing substantial amounts of it, should only be usedwhen the level of (hydro)peroxides is kept to the lowest practical level, for instance by adding antioxidants at the time of production. The addition of 0.1% BHT or α-Tocopherol for example has shown great efficiency. Such products should have a peroxide value of less than 20 millimoles per liter, determined according to the IFRA analytical method for the determination of the peroxide value.
