Bergamot is a little-known citrus fruit outside of our industry. It is native to Southern Italy, Reggio Calabria, and has historically been used in fragrances. Its phototoxic properties are known due to its bergapten and psoralens content, regulated by IFRA. Ventós, apart from the conventional and bergapten-free, also offers organic quality.
