Are products labelled hypoallergenic safer for my skin?

We are sorry to say – no.  Products labelled hypoallergenic may still contain quite strong preservatives and other ingredients that you may react to.  It all depends on your skin type and what you are allergic too.  Be vigilant, read the labels, especially the ingredient lists and avoid anything with parabens or Methylisothiazolinone. Check make-up labels too! If you know what you are allergic or sensitive too, then you can avoid it. If however, you have sensitive skin but are unsure of any specific allergies, we would advise you to do a patch test of any new product first before applying it to your face to ensure it works for you. Anyone can be sensitive to any ingredient!
