juniper berry

Rating:
Poor
Categories:
Sensitizing , Skin-Soothing , Plant Extracts

Plant (Latin name Juniperus communis) that can have skin-soothing properties for skin, although with repeated application (due to its methanol content) can result in skin sensitivity. Juniper lacks sufficient data proving it is safe for use on skin, and is chiefly added, in oil or extract form, to impart fragrance.
