For years I spent time and money testing new products (makeup, hair care) until a noted dermatolgist gave me the following list of ingredients to avoid if you are acne-prone and/or senstitive. I am posting it hoping that it will help others. I have a copy of the list on my palm pilot so I can quickly scan new products before I buy when shopping. Note- 2 products that I like- Sebastian Laminates Gel and Avalon Organics Shampoos and Conditioners (most are SLS* free- see below):

Skincare ingredients to avoid:

Acetol Acetulan

Acetylated Lanolin

Amberate P

Butyl Stearate

Crude Coal Tar

D&C Red Dyes

Decyl Oleate

Hexadecyl Alcohol

Hexylene Glycol


Polyethylene Glycol

Sodium Laurel Sulfate*
