Often we hear the expression "hypoallergenic cosmetics" or see the corresponding mark on the package. How does it differ from the usual one and who will it suit? Let's figure it out together!
Hypoallergenic cosmetics usually do not contain components that can cause an allergic reaction, for example, mineral oils, aggressive surfactants, parabens, artificial preservatives, flavors and dyes.
Natural cosmetics, contrary to popular belief, are not at all equally hypoallergenic. It happens that even harmless, at first glance, components of natural origin can act as allergens – essential oils, lanolin, honey and other bee products, cocoa, citrus extracts, etc.
Hence the recommendation: if you have a food allergy to some components, it is also better to avoid them in cosmetics.
How do I check if a particular cosmetic product causes you an allergy or an individual intolerance?
Very simple: apply a small amount to the elbow fold (it is believed that the skin in this place is close to the skin of the face in density and structure) and observe the skin reaction for 24 hours. If there is no redness, irritation, itching, rash, swelling or other discomfort – most likely, you don't have to worry and start using the chosen remedy.
There is an opinion that hypoallergenic cosmetics can only be used by allergy sufferers, but this is not the case. Who else can it suit?
- pregnant and nursing mothers who need a safe and natural composition of products;
- babies with delicate skin who do not yet have such a powerful protective barrier as adults;
- people with reactive, sensitive skin, who find it difficult to choose cosmetics, as the skin reacts sharply to any new products;
- those who regularly do facial cleansing, acid peels depilation and other traumatic cosmetic procedures – after them, the skin needs to be soothed, so the most gentle means are needed.
There are also hypoallergenic products in our assortment. Today we present you a small selection of face and body products.
For the shower
If after water treatments you feel unpleasant dryness or tightness of the skin, pay attention to the hypoallergenic Chamomile and Calendula shower foam. Gentle, light and airy, it perfectly cleanses the skin and at the same time does not dry it, gives softness, comfort and a light herbal aroma. It is also suitable for bathing babies!
For the body
To maintain freshness and comfort after a shower, we recommend using a "Neutral" deodorant based on natural minerals – aluminum-potassium alum.
The deodorant has no smell, because it does not contain essential oils that can cause allergies, itching and skin irritation. On the contrary, he carefully cares for her, moisturizes and softens. The product is universal – suitable for both men and women.
For intimate hygiene
As we know, the skin in the intimate area is more delicate, sensitive and prone to allergic reactions – this is another reason to use a hypoallergenic remedy for such delicate care.
To avoid irritation and discomfort, try an intimate deodorant "Hypoallergenic". It soothes and refreshes the skin, protects against the appearance of an unpleasant odor. And a small bottle with a spray dispenser is convenient to take with you on a trip or business trip to be confident in any situation.
For the face
Even if you have sensitive skin prone to redness, you should not deny yourself pleasant cosmetic procedures. For example, with natural hazelnut oil, you can do facial massage or warm nourishing masks.

Also, this oil helps to relieve skin irritation after shaving. It is worth having such a versatile product in your cosmetic bag!
And, of course, this selection would be incomplete without a nourishing face cream with hypoallergenic pumpkin oil.
