Skincare buzz word!

Skincare buzz word!

Beware, the term 'hypoallergenic' isn't always a promise—it's often a marketing gimmick! Sadly, because there is no clear definition (though there absolutely should be!) products wearing this label can harbor hidden allergens. At Vetted, we have a CRYSTAL CLEAR view of what hypoallergenic means. Here are some tips on how to play it safe and smart with your skincare:

Decode Ingredients: Dive into labels! Steer clear of common culprits like fragrances, essential oils/natural fragrance, and certain preservatives like methylisothiazolinone.

Fragrance-Free = Worry-Free: Fragrances are don't serve any purpose in a formulation other than smell. Look for products labeled as "Fragrance-free" as opposed to "unscented."

Patch Test Heroes: Before going all-in on a new product, test new finds on a tiny skin patch (we recommend the inner arm 2 x daily for 2 weeks).

Smart skincare starts with being informed. Your skin will thank you!
