When looking for hypoallergenic makeup brands, seek brands that do not contain zinc oxide, titanium oxide, nanoparticles, parabens, fragrances, artificial colorants or bismuth oxichloride. These chemicals and products, while relatively safe on normal skin, are often micronized, or converted into smaller and finer particles, which can then enter the body through the skin and cause irritation.
The following are well-known makeup brands that boast hypoallergenic and skin-safe products:
1. Physician's Formula
2. Burt's Bees
3. Shea Terra Organics
4. Colorescience Mineral Makeup
7. Eve Organics
Consumers should still be cautious of natural products that contain plant extracts. For example, someone with an allergy to ragweed should avoid products that contain chamomile.
