Cosmetic bonding, which is the practice of combining two products in the same packaging, is widely used to make cosmetic products which are less toxic to the skin.
But according to the Cosmetic Products Association of Australia (CPAA), there are two types of facial bonding which can cause allergic reactions.
The most common is the “bonding-type” which is used in the packaging of products such as face masks, lotions, and creams.
The other type is the cosmetic bonding which is usually applied directly to the product and does not use a lot of the ingredients in the product.
“There are a number of products out there that can cause reactions to facial bonding,” says Dr Michael Schreiber, CPAA’s managing director of the Health and Safety division.
“For example, some facial bonding products contain alcohol, which can irritate the skin.”
This can lead to anaphylaxis, which means the person who has ingested the product may experience a sudden and severe allergic reaction.
The CPAAS advises consumers to wash their face immediately after exposure to the products.
“If you have a reaction, rinse your face thoroughly and wash with soap and water,” says Schreib.
“Then, if you are concerned about anaphysematism, try to use the product immediately to treat the allergic reaction.”
There are also some products which contain ingredients that can exacerbate or worsen the symptoms of anaphysias.
For example:The CMA recommends that people use a topical allergy test when they apply any facial bonding product to their skin.
“The test measures your skin reaction to a specific ingredient and tells you if you should use a mask or not,” says the CMA’s managing Director, Professor Brian Dickson.
“You can also get an eye test if you have difficulty breathing.
If your reaction is severe or has a serious effect on your health, contact your doctor.”
