How can I test a new product to see if it is safe for me to use?

How can I test a new product to see if it is safe for me to use?

The best thing is to check the ingredients and ensure they are free from harsh preservatives and chemicals.  Always choose natural or organic.  Then purchase a trial or sample size.  Then do a patch test.  Even products with pure ingredients may contain something you are allergic to. To perform a patch test, apply a small amount of the product to a non-inflamed area of skin in a discreet place, either behind the ear or the inside of your elbow are good places.  Then wait for 24 hours.  If you have no reaction, the product is probably suitable for you.
