‘Hypoallergenic’ Skin Care

Does your skin care product contain these ingredients?

  • Parabens
  • Mineral Oil, Paraffin, and Petrolatum
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS) or Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES)
  • Benzyl Alcohol
  • Polyethylenglycols (PEG)
  • Triclosan Cathon
These ingredients are part of a list of potentially dangerous chemicals that can be found in most skin care products. These chemicals can cause toxic and allergic reactions such as skin rashes, headaches, dizziness, and/or respiratory problems. In addition, parabens are widely used as preservatives in over 13,200 skin care products.1There have been numerous studies that have identified the connection between parabens and cancer.

A number of hypoallergenic skin care products are available in the market. Regulations list 26 official allergens that all hypoallergenic products sold in the market must not possess, in order to qualify as being hypoallergenic. However, the hypoallergenic quality of Physio Radiance goes above and beyond this standard list, as it blacklists more than 80 harmful ingredients that are known to be allergens or toxic! When formulating Physio Radiance, our aim was to develop an evolving list of ingredients that are restricted from use in our products, to ensure the health and well-being of all our customers, no matter their sensitivities.
