Some people may be allergic to the oxidation products of Limonene. It is plant derived, biodegradable and suitable for greywater and septic tanks when used in small concentrations.

A naturally occurring terpene (organic compound) found in lemon and orange fruits. Limonene is found naturally in many of the essential oils we use as fragrances for our products. Although this molecule is found in nature, it can still have a negative effect on some people who may be sensitive to its oxidised products, which can be irritating to the skin. We use Limonene as an antibacterial agent in our multi-purpose spray and multi-purpose concentrate at less than 1% concentration.
