There are all kinds of skin care products available these days, with some focusing on being natural
and while you may think those are better for your skin, a study found they often contain allergens.

Researchers with Cleveland Clinic analyzed more than 1,600 so-called natural personal care products for this study, and discovered most included ingredients that can cause allergic contact dermatitis.

Cleveland Clinic’s doctor Sandra Hong – who did not take part in the study – says products that have fragrances, can be a big culprit. She recommends people who have very sensitive skin avoid those and use products labeled fragrance free or hypoallergenic instead.
