We have two Bergamots for you to choose from: Bergamot FCF & Bergamot Extra
Bergamot FCF has had its Furocoumarin content removed, making it the best choice for skincare where there is the potential for UV exposure. The Furocoumarin content in Bergamot can cause photosensitization when used on the skin before sun exposure.
Bergamot Extra has a fuller and more beautiful scent. Where skin phototoxicity is not a concern, Bergamot Extra will create a more lovely scent blend.Botanical Name: citrus bergamia
