Majority Of "Hypoallergenic" And "Fragrance-Free" Moisturizers Not What Their Manufacturers Claim, Study Shows

October 2, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Among moisturizers advertised by their manufacturers as hypoallergenic and fragrance-free, a larger number actually contain skin irritants and scents, according to researchers from Northwestern University in Chicago. Results of the study, which covered moisturizers that were top-selling from Amazon, Walmart, and Target, revealed these products are putting consumers with sensitive skin at risk of rashes. Moisturizers are considered cosmetics by the US Food and Drug Administration and, hence, are barely regulated before they are sold on the market.
