The Butylphenyl Methylpropional is said to lead to skin sensitization and therefore has a restricted use label from the International Fragrance Association (IFRA). The Butylphenyl Methylpropional ingredient poses a serious concern with the Environmental Working Group who highlights its connection to immunotoxicity and cancer cell mutation.
