Nothing Possibly Problematic™

No need to agonise over the ingredients panel anymore, thanks to our nothing Possibly Problematic™ promise. Consider it your skin’s super strict security guard, checking that only the best ingredients are on the guestlist with no potential irritants sneaking in to gatecrash your glow. 

We’ll never include these ingredients that we’ve identified as Possibly Problematic™

Fragrance / Parfum

Fragrance offers zero benefits to the health of your skin. It’s one of the most irritating ingredients to put on your face, particularly if your skin is already sensitive. Some brands will trick you by saying their product is 'Fragrance Free' but then they will include citrus (such as limonene) or florals (such as rose) as a sneaky way of getting fragrance into their product. If you are irritated by fragrance, you are also likely to be irritated by citrus and floral scents.


Dyes are a synthetic additive that provide no benefit to the health of your skin and exist only to change the colour of a product. Many synthetic dyes contain heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, and chromium – yikes!

Drying Alcohols

Not all types of alcohol in skincare are ‘bad’. Alcohols that don’t belong in skincare are those that are used as a preservative that dry and irritate the skin. These are ethanol, methanol, ethyl alcohol, denatured alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, SD alcohol, and benzyl alcohol.

Essential Oils

Essential oils are a common irritant in skincare and can cause reactions such as contact dermatitis, dryness, redness, and itchiness. Many oils are highly fragrant which can be aggravating, particularly if your skin is already sensitive. Essential oils are a good example that just because something is ‘natural’, it doesn’t mean it's good to put on your face.


Widely used to make skincare products feel good whilst being cheap to manufacture, silicones don’t have any actual benefit to the health of your skin. Silicones can act as an unhelpful 'barrier' and trap oil, dirt, and dead skin cells. This can clog pores which can lead to break outs and acne.


Parabens are used as a preservative but thankfully there are now many other effective (and safer) alternatives. Parabens have been linked to hormone disruption, and they are a common cause of skin sensitivities and allergies.


SLS, SLES can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions. Some people are particularly sensitive to sulphates and may develop dermatitis as a reaction. Sulphates can also clog pores making skin prone to break outs and acne.

SKINPOSSIBLE™ is committed to upholding Our Pledge to never include these ingredients in our products.

Skincare, but better.
