    What are hypoallergenic cosmetics? How to check whether particular product is hypo allergic or not?
    It means it's unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. It will usually say on the packaging if it is or not. Generally, anything with fragrances, mercury containing ingredients, alcohols etc should be avoided if you're trying to buy hypoallergenic

    You can try the cosmetic you want to buy, but you don't know, whether it will cause you an allergic reaction. You can grease the product on your inward crook of your arm. If you do not have any itching or irritations, then this product will not cause you an allergic reaction
