Trash & Re-Stash: Hypoallergenic Alternatives For Your Entire Medicine Cabinet!

Start from scratch — with hypoallergenic alternatives — to end the scratching!

You Just Got A Patch Test?

Great! Now you know exactly what you need to avoid and are on the road to skin health, clarity, and comfort. But…what’s that? Your patch test shows you’re allergic to ingredients in pretty much everything you use now? You have to throw it all away — all of it…shampoo, cleanser, lotions, makeup — and start from scratch with hypoallergenic alternatives? That can be scary. So can that “naked” feeling of not using anything at all until you find products without your allergens.

Think about it: you have to go without using anything (including, in many cases, antiperspirant and toothpaste) until you find products you can use…and it may have taken you weeks or months to find all the stuff you use now!

Before you resign yourself to Walking Dead chic, try this: ask your doctor about our Allergen-Free Starter Set or pick up our Skin “Detox” Kit. Either covers all your basic needs so you needn’t panic when beginning your hypoallergenic lifestyle. Each formulation has zero of all 76 of the most common allergens (based on over 28,000 patch tests), making them ideal for the majority of allergic, irritated, or hyperreactive skins. Then, use this chart for an easy guide to hypoallergenic alternatives for your medicine cabinet staples. Still reeling from ingredient lists? Contact us for customized recommendations based on your patch test results!



Match what you need to trash with its hypoallergenic alternative. When in doubt, select products with the highest VH-rating (VH-76/76) — which means they have none of all common allergens.

Clear Your Acne, Rashes, Darkening & Dryness With…Toothpaste?

The strangest things could be causing your skin problems…

Like a deeper dental cleaning…but far, far more pleasant.

…like toothpaste!

If you have chronically chapped, flaking, or darkened lips; or acne, rashes, or hyperpigmentations on the jawline, or around the mouth and chin, you may have peri-oral dermatitis. Common culprits include fluorides, flavors, dyes, preservatives and other allergens or halogens in toothpastes and oral care products.


The good news is that just switching toothpastes can bring dramatic clarity. For best results, ask your doctor for a patch test


…and try this Halogen-Free Diet.
