Bergamot bergapten free (essential oil)

The bergamot has been cultivated mainly in Italy, in the Calabria region, since the 18th century, but there are differing versions as to its origins, whether it was a remnant of the Arab occupation or a cross between the bitter orange and the lime.


Bergamot essential oil without bergapten comes from the steam distillation of bergamot essential oil, obtained by expression (cold pressing) of the fruit peel.


Bergamot is a very acidic citrus fruit, between the lime and the bitter orange with a peel loaded with active principles. Bergamot without bergapten is used in cosmetics to regulate sebum secretion while purifying and regenerating the skin. Its essential oil is ideal for all types of skin, particularly combination to oily skin and skin with a tendency to acne.
