Preservatives are very common in skin care products, like the common Methylisothiazolinone and Methylchloroisothiazolinone (MIT/CMIT) are widely used because of broad-spectrum sterilization, but it is not so friendly to sensitive skin.
In addition, DMDM acetonide urea, bis-imidazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea and other formaldehyde and formaldehyde releasing body class, benzyl alcohol, phenoxyethanol and other phenols, as well as, such as sorbic acid, benzoic acid and other partial acids. All belong to the category of allergenic preservatives.
Although it is difficult for consumers to screen one by one, but for sensitive muscles, it is usually best to pay more attention. Skin care products that do not contain allergy-causing preservatives are obviously required to use higher cost preservative methods.
Most people can’t resist the scent, the fragrant smell makes girls want to stop and eventually order. However, studies have found that fragrance allergies are very common among people who are allergic to skin care products, and aromatic substances like Peruvian balsam, cinnamaldehyde and cinnamyl alcohol are common sensitive ingredients.
Alcohol (ethanol) can disinfect, but it can also irritate the skin, and for sensitive skin, alcohol can really be a nightmare. In addition to this, other ingredients such as peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil, menthol and camphor can also aggravate skin sensitivity.
