Fresh and citrusy
Citral can be a colourless or pale, yellow liquid with a strong, fresh odour of lemon peel
Citral is widely found in the essential oils Lush uses, such as bergamot, cardamom, geranium, ginger, grapefruit, lemon, lemongrass, lime, neroli, sweet orange, petitgrain, rose and red thyme. It is found as a constituent of essential oils in many of our products.
Sometimes it is added in its synthetic form to give a fresh, lemon odour to perfumes or help to develop rose note in soap perfumery.
