You should avoid the allergens presents in your cosmetics. You may take a note of the material which is allergens for you. But, you know that the marketers are very clever, they sometimes did not write the substance which give fragrance and rather write just “fragrance”. So be careful when you are using these type of cosmetics. Fragrances are added to the cosmetics when they want to give their product a good smell or when they have to hide the smell of active material present in their cosmetics. Common examples of such products include lip balms, lipsticks, toners, makeup wipes and more.
Using these products with fragrances may increase the problem which they were supposed to correct it. Let’s take an example of lip balm. It has menthol, which is good for your lips as they have cooling effect. But, it may get bad on your lips causing irritation and redness. One substance, different effect depending on your type of skin.
“Fragrance molecules are small and penetrate the skin, but also then react with the skin’s own proteins to create foreign molecules that the immune system reacts to. Therefore, you need to be very careful about using fragrance around the eyes and lips,” Dr. Tom Mammone, the executive director of skin physiology and pharmacology in Clinique’s (a sensitive skin oriented brand) R&D department, told New York Magazine.
There is no regulations in use of fragrance in cosmetics in India While the Bureau of India Standards has regulations in place for fragrances as an independent entity. Some manufacturers makes their products from natural substances mich make them smell like fragrance- free. But, for your knowledge, natural substances may also be irritants to your skin.
This is just a type of marketing to sell their product as much as they can. Some manufacturers also say that their product does not have perfume as it does not smell so. But the truth is that they use some chemicals to give their product a smell which seems like it does not smell at all. Sometimes the fragrances are also added to mask up the smell of degraded product which get destroyed due this unlihht and air. Some cosmetics which you apply by using your hands also have fragrances which masks up the smell of degraded substances which gets destroyed when you put your hand in it.
It doesn’t mean that you should give up on all cosmetic products. No. The bad effect of fragrance present in cosmetic products doffer person by person. You may and may not have the bad effect of fragrance depending on your skin type. The best way to know if a particular product is or isn’t an allergen is to test it on a small, nondescript area of the body before using it. Be cautious with products used on the skin near the eyes and the lips, as they are especially sensitive.
