CHLORPHENESIN - What is it?

Chlorphenesin is an ingredient frequently used in cosmetic and skincare products.

It is an antimicrobial agent which is used mainly to prevent bacteria and micro-organism from developing in these products. Another benefit of chlorphenesin is that it also helps control the development of micro-organism on the skin.

It is indeed essential to avoid the development of micro-organism in skincare products so that these products can be safe. All the more if this product is used on sensitive, intolerant or allergic skin, or if the skin is prone to eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, dyshidrosis or other dermatological conditions.

Unfortunately, like every ingredient, Chlorphenesin can sometimes generate a reaction for some people: it is rare, but it may happen.

There is no way of knowing in advance if someone will react to Chlorphenesin, unless that person already knows if they are allergic to this ingredient.

Moreover, sometimes, some batches of Chlorphenesin can create allergic reactions, while other batches coming from the same producers have no effect.

Skintifique products are designed for people who have sensitive, intolerant or allergic skin. We attach a lot of importance to the quality of ingredients that we use, as well as minimizing the number of ingredients and using them only in the concentrations most adapted to the expected effect.

In that spirit, Chlorphenesin is present in some Skintifique products. It is then used at a minimal concentration, so as to limit the risks of unwanted skin reactions, but sufficient so as to allow product to resist microbial contamination in the very demanding test conditions that all our products are assessed for. In any case, Chlorphenesin concentration is always under 0,3%. Moreover, we obtain our Chlorphenesin, like all the ingredients used in our products, at established producers, who answer to the best quality requirements.

We recommend that people who think that they might react to Chlorphenesin do a tolerance test with all new products containing this ingredient, before using it regularly or on extended surfaces. Typically, a tolerance test is done by applying the skincare product on a small skin surface (for example, on the forearm), and by waiting a few minutes to see if there is no unwanted skin reaction. In case of a reaction, this product should not be used. If it is a Skintifique product, don’t hesitate to contact us. More generally, doing a tolerance test with all new products is a good practice for all persons with a sensitive or reactive skin.
