The allergens in cosmetics.
The ingredients responsible for allergy to cosmetics were determined in 119 patients suffering from cosmetic-related contact dermatitis. Most reactions (56.3%) were caused by skin care products,Expand
Contact allergy to preservatives – II
To determine whether the prevalence of allergic reactions to certain preservatives warrants their inclusion in a routine series for patch testing, a tray of 14 preservatives was tested in 501 consecutive suspected contact dermatitis patients and Kathon CG® and alkyl trimethyl ammonium chloride only was found.
