The purpose of the study was to investigete skin absorption and elimination of three acyclic terpenes: citronellol (C), linalool (L) and linalyl acetate (LA). The pure terpenes were applied onto the human skin in vitro, and after 1-4 h, their content in the stratum corneum layers and in the epidermis/dermis was determined using gas chromatography. Similarly, the amounts of terpenes in the skin were analysed during 4 h following 1-h absorption. Good absorption to the all skin layers was… CONTINUE READING
