Queen Cosmetics, the UK’s oldest sensitive skincare company, is delighted to announce that its products have received certification by AllergyCertified, a new international standard designed to enable consumers to see instantly whether a product might cause an allergic reaction.
Sensiderma Renew & Refine and Queen Skin Cream are the first Queen products, and the first UK cosmetic products, to have been awarded the AllergyCertified accreditation. They will bear the AllergyCertified logo with its clear blue tick which immediately communicates products’ suitability for sensitive skin types.
“The market has become very crowded and confusing for sensitive skin sufferers; the term hypo-allergenic, for example, no longer carries the same connotations it did when Queen was founded nearly 90 years ago,” says David Lees, Queen Managing Director.
“Matters have been further confused by ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ labelling as it is assumed these products are suitable for sensitive skin when often they can exacerbate or cause sensitive skin conditions. When we heard about the AllergyCertified standard, we knew this was an excellent way of reassuring customers.”
Allergy Certified was set up in 2014 by Danish toxicologists looking to establish an international standard for products which are unlikely to cause allergies.
Says AllergyCertified’s Lene Stiil: “We were delighted to announce the certification of Queen products and excited that these are the first UK products to join the AllergyCertifed roster. We see skin allergy figures increasing; it is not only older women getting allergic to perfume but young kids, teenagers and men are also affected and are battling skin allergies. Our mission is clear: the more skin friendly products that consumers can choose from, the better. We want the future for consumers to be bright. Fewer allergies, more smiles!”
About Queen Cosmetics
Originally created by three eminent London dermatologists almost 90 years ago, Queen manufactures and sells a full range of skincare and colour cosmetic products for sensitive skin, including those suffering from eczema, dermatitis, acne or rosacea. The Queen range contains as few ingredients as possible, including no perfume, masking fragrance or essentials oils, to minimise irritation to or inflammation of the skin. Queen products are manufactured in the UK in the beautiful Sussex countryside and have loyal customers all over the world.
Sensiderma Renew & Refine is Queen’s best-selling anti-wrinkle cream. With a unique peptide action to reduce the appearance of expression and fine lines, it has received excellent reviews from customers and beauty writers alike.
Skin Cream is a classic Queen product and was known as ‘Skin Food’ when it was first launched because it restored sore, dry skin to health. It is an intensive emollient balm with a wealth of uses and is particularly useful for very dry skin and eczema-prone skin.

AllergyCertified was founded in 2014 by Ewa Daniel, a toxicologist, and Lene Stiil, a business manager, from the Danish Asthma & Allergy Association to provide clear labelling of consumer cosmetics and detergents in response to a need for an international label that consumers can trust when looking for products which are unlikely to cause skin allergy. AllergyCertified’s stated mission is to help prevent people all over the world from getting allergic skin reactions, one of the most common chronic skin diseases. In order to do so, it certifies products that get into contact with skin such as shampoo, soap, lotion, sunscreen, detergents, cleaning products, nappies, quilts, make-up and many more.
