Liquid Wrench Penetrating Oil: B-Farnesene

So, I am mulling over the SDS for Liquid Wrench's Penetrating Oil, and I decide to see what CAS "1581740-29-5" leads to, but no dice. I instead lookup the constituent hydrocarbon to see if it has particular uses. Thats: 1,6,10-dodecatriene 7,11-dimethyl-3-methylene-, (6e)-, Hydrotreated What I'm finding is this: Which says it's Beta-Farnesene, They put 5-10% of this into the blend, but why? As an insect repellent? I understand that SDS does not have to report everything, yada yada.

I have done that, and it really works! Better than any commercial penetrant.
Still on my first can of Silikroil from >5 years ago. Granted I use it sparingly and typically use Liquid Wrench for less stubborn fasteners.
Trans fluid and acetone does work well and cost is economical. I like the liquid wrench.. personally pb blaster and liquid wrench are my go to.

Thank you, Mola.
