* A fragrance ingredient

Functions:

Lilial is a fragrance ingredient formally known as Butylphenyl Methylpropional. It is a widely used fragrance compound found naturally in the essential oil of chamomile and is used synthetically in a variety of beauty products, including perfumes, shampoos, deodorants, tanning lotions and hairstyling products, primarily for its Lily of the Valley aroma.

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

Lilial has repeatedly been found to be a skin irritant in animals and was listed as an irritant in 2001 by Contact Dermatitis. It is one of 26 fragrance allergans designated by the EU.

In 2016, the European Commission Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety concluded: "The  SCCS  is  of  the  opinion  that  BMHCA  is  not safe  for  use  as  fragrance  ingredient  in  cosmetic  leave-on  and  rinse-off  type  products,  neither  at concentration  limits  according  to  the ones set up by IFRA in 2013 (MoS = 3.6) nor at concentration limits as set up by IFRA in the revised proposal that has been submitted in 2015 belatedly (MoS = 53). In addition, no firm conclusion could be drawn on mutagenicity." (source)
