  • Allergen

    Whether a substance, a particle or organic body, allergens cause an allergic reaction when they come into contact with people who are generally sensitive to allergens. Among the more well-known allergens are dust, pollen, spores, mildew, animal hair, acarina (mites), insect venom, eggs, peanuts, latex fruit (kiwi, avocado, banana), umbellifers, seafood, milk and food additives. In cosmetics, numerous active ingredients derived from petrol are considered as allergens.

    Alpaderm, the organic Swiss laboratory, uses exclusively hypoallergenic natural active ingredients with no chemical additives in its skincare and hair treatment products.
