Our approach to helping with allergies

This page tells you all about skin allergies and how to identify products which might suit you.

Some ingredients can cause allergic reactions in a small number of people and we work hard to ensure we are using the lowest possible amount of these ingredients. Some ingredients are too important to leave out because of their function and benefit for most consumers.

We decide what goes into our products based on three things: what people prefer, our own safety checks and regulations of countries in which our products are marketed.

We know allergen information is important for the small percentage of people who may be sensitive to certain ingredients. That’s why we give clear information about what’s on our products.

What products can you use if you have an allergy?

A small number of people can become allergic to certain fragrance ingredients. Therefore, we aim to provide information on the presence of fragrance allergens to our consumers either on-pack or via our carelines. And in Europe we have created a database to help people find products which may be suitable. Find out more about ‘What’s in our products’ in your local country.

If you are not sure if you have an allergy to a fragrance ingredient, you should seek advice from a qualified healthcare professional.
