Lilial is a fragrance ingredient formally known as Butylphenyl Methylpropional. It is a widely used fragrance compound found naturally in the essential oil of chamomile and is used synthetically in a variety of beauty products, including perfumes, shampoos, deodorants, tanning lotions and hairstyling products, primarily for its Lily of the Valley aroma.
Allergic contact dermatitis to Lilial was first reported and well studied in 1983. Lilial has repeatedly been found to be a skin irritant in animals and was listed as an irritant in 2001 by Contact Dermatitis. It’s also banned as an ingredient in Europe because of its toxic and irritant properties.
