Ingredients Inside EWG CIR Cosmetic Roles
Purified Water (H₂O)
  • Safe For Malassezia (Fungal Acne)
Data Source [0]
1 S Solvent
Glycerin (Polyol)
  • Good for Dry Skin Types
  • Even though this is known to promote growth in very high concentrated formulas, small traces should not be problematic for most people with Malassezia. The exception here is those with hypersensitive and reactive skin. In which case, patch testing is recommended first. Another approach is to pair these glycerin-based products up with some form of chemical exfoliant or active, salicylic acid, urea, sulfur, etc.

    Hello and thank you for this site!

    I really wanted to love this cream but it gave me a rash.

    Since I am sensitive to Glycerin (I think), I wonder what the following sentence means in the ingredient list – ” Another approach is to pair these glycerin-based products up with some form of chemical exfoliant or active, salicylic acid, urea, sulfur, etc.”

    Does this affect the glycerin somehow?

      Hi Kat,
      So sorry to hear that this isn’t working for you, in response to your question, what we are saying here is that if there is an ingredient in your routine that promotes the growth of Malassezia Folliculitis even in small concentrations and especially a very common compound like “Glycerin” which is practically in every product, you also should make use of an anti-fungal/active ingredient like Nizoral Shampoo or Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo for example.
      The idea here is that although the yeast will try to divide or grow by feeding on the ingredients it can metabolize, it will be doing so in a very hostile environment, thus limiting and halting its ability to proliferate, in essence causing it to die.
      Can you say if this is an MF/FA flare-up or just an allergic reaction?
      Could you also share the rest of your routine with us, so we can dissect it?

A patch test is a method used to determine whether a specific substance causes allergic inflammation of the skin. Any individual suspected of having allergic contact dermatitis or atopic dermatitis needs to patch test.

We each individually have very unique skin types and this is exactly why one person’s “Holy Grail” Skincare product can be the worst nightmare for someone else. Especially if you have extremely, sensitive reactive skin. Hence, it is super important to test products out on your skin first before plastering them all over your body especially the face only to later pay the price for neglecting this very important step of adding a new product or starting skin care routine.

Start by apply a1/2 pea size amount of product to the back of your ear
each time on clean skin, this must be done long enough so that you are able to see if any ingredient is causing irritation and or an allergic or comedogenic reaction on the skin. Application for two weeks morning and evening can be a good starting point for most people. For individuals with extremely sensitive skin types, these reactions may occur in as little as 24 hrs. You know your skin best so watch it closely as you carry out these tests. And stop if you notice, that the new product is giving you problems.
