It means it is not synthetic so it is either an essential oil or food based fragrance. Most people or sensitive to synthetic fragrances or synthetic colors where this has none of those.
While I cannot say if it will be helpful or harmful to you're delicate skin,I can help with you're main question.If a product states "naturally sourced",or "from essential oils",it means that the ingredient in question-this time parfum and colour -are taken from a naturelle source.Most naturelle and /or organik products will say this ,and if they do not stear clear .Usually ,the naturelle source is something already in the product-for other purposes-and the manufacturers got lucky,it smells good.I am European and live in England,so we have always seen this.However,if it is a product from Europe, I have noticed that they add essential oils-not harmful,and usually match the treatment plan of the product-to make it smell better.Looking at his ingredients I would guess it is the first .If you look at for instance Jurlique-what I normally use-or Caudalie,you will see the latter.I have not tried these products myself,but like you have many sensitivities,and they look alright by me.By the way ,-parfumes,artificial colours and chemical spfs,are the most frequent irritants,in that order.At least that is what my "long serving" dermatologist in Austria says,and he has never steared me wrong.Also,just as a pointer my skin and many others who have "reactive qualities',are made worse by mineral oils,lanolin and any of the "cones" , i.e.dimethicone,silicone etc.If it is an E.U. product ,it is easier to navigate.The government is stricter with the labels 'naturelle' and "organik",and it should have the E.U. symbol .As well as it's particular country of origin, will have a symbol telling you exactly where it falls-catagorically I mean.Long answer I know ,yet a very important question.If you are more prolific with internet searches -I am not -you can find all the E.U. -and countries within- symbols and exactly what they mean,somewhere I am sure.It would certainly help give you a stronger "knowledge base" on some of the terms,and would help with any of our products you are interested in.Like I said before ,I use Jurlique-available here-and have never had any trouble-if you do look at that line ,do not "freak out ",at the enourmously high prices. They offer a lot of things in double sizes and regular .You are most probably seeing a larger version.I have spent many years -and 'do not even want to know' how much bloody money- figuring my skin out.Again ,I apologise for the length.It is due to my strong feeling that as women ,we should help support each other through this "maze" of products and advertisments that can be cleverly disguised ,as I am sure you are aware. I sincerly hope that this has been helpful,and you find a line that helps you be even more beautiful. Lisl
