The aim of the focus action was to examine pure essential oils with regard to their classification and safety. 21 samples from all over Austria were examined, 15 of which were pure essential oils. Eleven were clearly marketed as cosmetic products; however, they were classified as cosmetic raw materials and thus had to be labeled with hazard pictograms and hazard statements according to chemical law regulations. Three samples were objected to.
