Why Allergen-Free Lipstick?

Why allergen free lipstick?

It’s true.  Some cosmetics have ingredients that cause an allergic reaction in some people.  Make-up, like lipstick, can cause skin or respiratory reactions which can be uncomfortable, unsightly, or even dangerous.

This is why it is so important to make sure the cosmetics you buy are allergen free and contain no harsh chemicals.

WebMD offers this advice:

Read the list of ingredients on all cosmetic products. If you find an ingredient that has caused a reaction in the past, don’t use that product. Keep track of ingredients that have caused reactions, and look for products that do not contain those ingredients.

If you have had had prior allergic reactions to make-up in the past, it is advisable before you wear the new make-up to do a “patch-test” on your arm.  This means apply a small amount of the product on your arm and see how your skin reacts to it.  An allergic reaction can take as much as 24 hours to appear.
