Another cause of photocontact dermatitis is from the interaction of UV radiation and photosensitising compounds found in various plants. This type of dermatitis is called phytophotodermatitis.

The most common plant family to cause phytophotodermatitis is the Umbellliferae family. Other plant families that cause phytophotodermatitis are Rutaceae, Moraceae and Leguninosa.

The main photosensitising substances found in these plants are called furocoumarins and consist of psoralens and 5-methoxypsoralens, 8-methoxypsoralens, angelicin, bergaptol and xanthotal.
