Skin stuff by stinky stuff

Has anyone tried this? Seen it on FB and seems to have very good reviews for psoriasis

Looking at their website it is just a moisturiser. It is touted as "natural" and a quick look at the ingredients it shows it contains Linalol and Limonene. These are alcohols used as fragrance and Limonene CAN cause allergic reaction and even contact-dermatitis in some people. Limomene allergy is a recognised condition in the UK.

It also contains Citronellol - also with a significant potential for skin reactions.

I have seen on some websites the manufacturers of "green beauty products" say that despite these warnings the "versions" of these substances found in "natural essential oils" do not cause skin reactions.

Personally I prefer to use non-fragranced moisturiser, or with less chemical-based fragrances.

I have used DoubleBase Gel, Doublebase Dayleve gel, and Childs Farm products with good results - and by good results, I mean good moisturisiong, relief of itching.

It might be an age-related thing, but I simply do not trust adverts, product claims and product reviews found on facebook.
