EU Cosmetic Regulations state that allergenic substances must appear on the label if concentration of an allergen is higher than 0.01% (100 ppm) in rinse-off products and higher than 0.001% (10 ppm) in leave-on products.  Typical use levels of <6% Linatural Ultra-MFN involve <0.00009 % (<0.9 ppm) of Linalool and <0.00012 (<1.2 ppm) Limonene, and thus do not reach the EU allergen level for listing.  Thus, including Linatural® Ultra-MFN in formulations does not require listing any allergens.
