This report outlines how, from eleven commercial samples screened, three oils (one fresh, one mildly oxidised and one oxidised) were chosen by peroxide index determination and thoroughly defined by GC, GCMS and physical constants as to whether they were typical oils meeting international standards before being tested for dermal penetration and other safety parameters for the dossier.
