General recommendations

  • Fragrance is one of the most frequent causes of contact allergic reactions; therefore, fragrance-free skin care products are recommended over scented products.
  • Physical Sunscreens (also referred to as "sunblocks"), are those containing the ingredients zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.  These sunscreens are less likely to cause skin reactions and are, therefore, recommended for individuals with sensitive skin. 
  • Individuals with acne, rosacea, eczema or other skin conditions should consult their dermatologist for routine skincare recommendations.
  • Select products with the fewest ingredients to minimize the chance of allergic reactions.
