Preventing Allergic Reaction Skin

How can you prevent an allergic skin reaction? By knowing which ingredients it is better to avoid, but also by choosing facial care with it Allergy Certified-quality mark.

Preventing Allergic Reaction Skin

Did you know that over a quarter of European adults are allergic to one or more ingredients? You are not born with that, allergies are built up because you are exposed several times to an allergen: an ingredient that can cause an allergy. Fortunately, you can prevent allergic skin reactions by avoiding products that contain allergens or using products that are Allergy Certified. The criteria for these allergens are determined by a toxicologist. She checks all ingredients and the concentrations of each individual product to ensure they are as skin-friendly as possible.

Allergy Certified facial care

Our Allergy Certified facial care is carefully toxicologically tested before being certified by Allergy Certified allowed to wear. This is a lengthy procedure where every ingredient in the product is checked for the risk of an allergic reaction from use. Ingredients that pose a risk are frowned upon and may not be used. You can therefore assume that the products that bear the Allergy Certified quality mark:

  • prevent an allergic skin reaction
  • pose a minimal to no risk of developing an allergy,
  • minimize the risk of skin irritation
  • and are safe for sensitive skin,
  • a pregnant woman's skin and even baby's skin. 

Are natural or organic cosmetics always safe?

Natural, organic or vegan products are a good idea when it comes to food. This works differently with cosmetics, it does not guarantee that the products are skin-friendly and that an allergic reaction on your skin is prevented. At least 19 of the 26 most allergenic perfumes can be natural. So if you choose organic or natural cosmetics, check that they do not contain perfume. This also applies (or especially) to baby care products.
