Use SkinSAFE to avoid common allergy causing ingredients

Top Allergen Free is the new standard for hypoallergenic, backed by science and real patch testing data.

The problem with 'hypoallergenic' as it's used today, is that the term can mean whatever a particular manufacturer or brand wants it to mean. There is no federal standard that governs the use of the term. The word is used mostly used to make a product more marketable. Top Allergen Free is the new standard for Hypoallergenic. It's tied to real research data from thousands of skin allergy sufferers. A 'Top Free' product excludes the top most common allergens, which produces fewer allergic reactions than other products and is gentler to your skin. In fact, research shows that over 45% of contact skin allergies can be avoided simply by using SkinSAFE's 'Top Free' rated products.

Top Allergen Free - The new definition of hypoallergenic

When shopping for hypoallergenic products, look for Top Allergen Free rated products and other high scores to avoid the most common allergy causing ingredients.

The list of top common allergens that are included in our Top Allergen Free rating of products reflect Mayo Clinic research around allergen reaction rates from thousands of skin allergy sufferers in ongoing studies. The top common allergens list is periodically updated to reflect the latest results. The Top Allergen Free rating consists of the top most common allergy causing ingredients used in beauty and personal care products.
