Pentadecalactone

* A fragrance ingredient

Functions:

Pentadecalactone is a perfume and fragrance ingredient added to cosmetics and beauty products. It is known for its sweet, powdery, and woody odor. Pentadecalactone is one of the key phermones produced by the apocrine glands of the male armpit, and is credited with attracting females; it is found in other mammals as well, according to research. It is FDA approved for use as an indirect food additive.

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

According to the Cosmetic Database, Pentadecalactone is 77% safe and considered a low hazard ingredient. Many of the concerns regarding this ingredient stem from environmental hazards, although studies have shown that causes metabolic effects when administered at high doses to mice. A study published in Food and Cosmetics Toxicology in 1975 also showed skin irritation in rabbits (Source).
