Sesame oil has been reported to contain sesamolin, sesamin and sesamol as contact allergens. A female patient had cheilitis due to sesame oil in a lipstick. She reacted to sesamolin and sesamin, but not to sesamol. We carried out analysis of the sesame oil by high performance liquid chromatography. We detected sesamolin and sesamin but not sesamol in sesame oil.
