Hypoallergenic Makeup – What Is It And What Are The Top 10 Popularly Used Products? June 27, 2016

Sometimes makeup can cause allergic reactions on our skin, leading to skin irritation or rashes. Hypoallergenic makeup is makeup, which when applied on the skin, causes comparatively fewer allergic reactions. This kind of make-up is made up of materials that have fewer chances of leading to allergic reactions. These products are generally fragrance-free as well.

When shopping for makeup, you might have noticed that some bottles and tubes are labeled as ‘hypoallergenic’. This refers to the fact that this particular makeup product was manufactured, keeping in mind that the materials used should cause less or no allergic reactions.

The term ‘hypoallergenic’, however, is not legalized as a trademark. Something labeled ‘hypoallergenic’ does not assure you of the side effects. The decision of purchasing these products wholly depends on the customer.
