Prevent allergy – choose a product that has been AllergyCertified.
AllergyCertified is an international certification organization founded in Denmark in 2015. When you choose products carrying the AllergyCertified label you can rest assured that our toxicologists have gone through every single ingredient and made a risk assessment. We are proud of our strict requirements to the quality of the information the cosmetic companies have to deliver to us.
We certify products all over the world so you can choose skin friendly whether you live in Sydney, Copenhagen, Tokyo, New York, London, Paris, Havana or Helsinki.
When you see the AllergyCertified label on a product you can be sure this is a product where there is minimal risk of developing allergy due to usage.
How we do it
When a company wants to certify a product we get all the information about the ingredients in the product. This means we get information about every single ingredient, the concentration of the ingredients and the name of the ingredients written in the international chemists language INCI. On top of that we get information about every ingredient’s ingredient. This may sound strange, but can be explained like this:
You want to bake a raspberry pie. For this you need flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, baking powder and raspberry jam. Every ingredient can consists of it’s own ingredients – for example the raspberry jam can contain raspberries, sugar, starch and some kind of preservation. The information about the ingredients in the ingredient is what you as a certifying company need to tell us – it is not enough just to tell us you have used raspberry jam.
