Re: it is a photosensitizer!

sensitization, but I've found many people have problems with them. As
for citrus juice ... only a few people I know have had trouble with
it, but sensitivity to citrus oil is more common. It burns something
evil on my skin. The "mehndi" oils that smell of citronella leave rows
of blisters on my skin along the henna lines. Thank god there are
safer terp alternatives!
The terps are a tricky lot. They are tiny molecules, and though they
are very efficient at facilitating the hydrophobic lawsones to loosen
up and stain ... many of them should not be put on people's skin.
There are only a few that will do the job and not hurt people.
