TLDR
Fragrance mix and formaldehyde were found to be the ingredients most often responsible and were significantly more frequent in patients with positive reactions to their own products, compared to a control group of eczema patients also seen in the patch‐test clinic. Expand
The role of contact allergy in the spectrum of adverse effects caused by cosmetics and toiletries
TLDR
It is concluded that contact allergy is, responsible for a minority of all reactions to cosmetics and toiletries, and the majority of reactions are due to irritation from personal cleanliness products such as soups, shampoos, bath foams and from deodorants, or worsening of pre‐existing dermatoses such as seborrhoeic dermatitis and acne. Expand
Frequency of dermatoses associated with cosmetics

Contact Dermatitis Due to Local Cosmetics: A Study from Northern India

Allergic patch test reactions associated with cosmetics: retrospective analysis of cross-sectional data from the North American Contact Dermatitis Group, 2001-2004.
TLDR
Females were more likely to have an allergic reaction associated with a cosmetic source than were male patients, and head and neck involvement was significantly higher in female patients than in male patients. Expand
Adverse reactions to fragrances
TLDR
Side‐effects of fragrance materials present in cosmetics are reviewed with emphasis on clinical aspects: epidemiology, type, of adverse reactions, clinical picture, diagnostic procedures, and the sensitizers. Expand
Usefulness of Patch Testing With Patient's Own Products in the Diagnosis of Allergic Contact Dermatitis
TLDR
It is essential to include patient's own products in the study of allergic contact eczema to make a correct diagnosis, as 3.81% of the patients would not have been correctly diagnosed if their own products had not been included in patch tests. Expand
