Ingredients You Don't Want Going into Your Skin


If you need sensitive skin care products, it's easy to get confused with all the brands claiming to offer such products.  Most labels have long lists of ingredients.  It's hard to tell what's good for your sensitive skin and what's not.  Not all long chemical words are bad, and not all short ones or those with plant names are necessarily good.

Below is a list of ingredients that have the potential to be irritating and should be avoided, specially if you are looking for sensitive skin care products:
