We used trace amount of lavender essential oil for its anti-inflammatory effects.
We noticed that there is some controversial arguments about lavender.
About lavender's estrogenic effect, it is false information.

We used lavender oil for scent. The concentration is too low to have any physiological effect other than a mild scent.
So far over 100,000 women including thousands of breast cancer survivors have used NeuEve and nobody had any issues. Additionally, the product is used externally, not ingested. Most ingredients are leaked out in discharges after application. The effect of a trace amount of ingredient for scent would be minimal if any.
We have found rose essential oil works equally well. We have replaced lavender essential oil with organic rose essential oil in all of our products lately. If you purchased NeuEve after January 1, 2023, your product is made with rose essential oil.
We checked the literature exhaustively and found no controversial findings about rose essential oil. We have tested the new formula made with rose essential oil in several hundreds of customers. No one noticed any difference. We have sold several thousand packs and so far without any complaints.
It appears that rose essential oil can offer mild rose scent and is safe.
Now that we entered the year of 2023, the migration of our products from lavender to rose essential oil in all of our products has completed.
Now, all New NeuEve products are lavender free.
