So many products are labelled as hypoallergenic – but what does it mean? And what benefits does it have for the skin?
Hypoallergenic, meaning «below normal» or «slightly» allergenic, was a term first used in a cosmetics campaign in 1953. It is used to describe items (especially cosmetics and textiles) that cause or are claimed to cause fewer allergic reactions. Hypoallergenic pets still produce allergens, but because of their coat type, absence of fur, or absence of a gene that produces a certain protein, they typically produce fewer allergens than others of the same species. People with severe allergies and asthma may still be affected by a hypoallergenic pet.
In short, hypoallergenic products are perfect for people with sensitive or complain skin. The manufacturers of hypoallergenic skincare products will have gone to great pains in not including any allergens, whether this is alcohol, dairy products or metals. This means that anyone suffering from sensitive skin can use them with the peace of mind that their skin won’t develop a rash or hives in response to their application.
