Furocumarins in cosmetics and material

analysis: organic contaminants

The furocoumarins are phototoxic. They are secondary plant compounds and are found in apiacea, bear claw or rutacea (citrus fruits). In combination with sunlight they can occure burn-like symptoms and carcinogenic metabolic products are formed. In essential oils, e.g. used in cosmetics the concentrations can be very high.
