    Estee Lauder revitalising Supreme (I find this good for day and night), Estee Lauder Re-Nutritiv (very rich – good for occasional use) (UK)

    Avene XeraCalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Cream is specifically designed for dermatitis and eczema. It’s very soothing and provides a good barrier.

    Hello Carol, limonene is only an MI figuratively speaking in the sense that both are allergens. There is nothing much in common between them chemically and there is no obvious reason why somebody with an allergy to one should avoid the other.

    Morning Colin,
    I found your page via a search. Having had a severe allergic reaction this weekend to a beauty product containing MI and having done some research, I find I am not alone.
    Thank you for the useful information

    Thank you for this most enlightening list. I have struggled for years with randomly reacting to a variety of products- sunscreens and shampoos being the biggest problem. A trip to the dermatologist got a recommendation for CeraVe am moisturizer with spf and free and clear shampoo (US). Both are MI free. Nice to finally put a name to the irritant.

    I use Cetaphil for face and body. Anyone know of a full coverage foundation?

    Hi Shelley,
    A little late to respond but I have had great luck with ReMarcable Full Cover Foundation by Marc Jacobs. A little goes a long way, and is long wearing.

    Please look into Beautycounter. I discovered the brand through my MI allergy and my skin has never looked better.

    Green People UK products are all free from MI as well. They have moisturizers, face cleanser, eye creams, face pressed powder etc.

    Ps. Thanks for your page Colin as it very helpful. I am highly allergic to MI plus many other ingredients. I desperately need to find a dish wash liquid available in the UK because my hands have badly broken out from using Fairy Liquid. I didn’t check the ingredients.

    Thanks for that Ciera, and a quick reminder to everyone that commercial companies, even ones that profess to be natural like Green People, can and do change their policies on this kind of thing from time to time. For this reason I don’t normally approve blanket recommendations for whole ranges. I happen to that Green People are, at least at the time of writing, quite fastidious about detailing what is in their products so I have let this one go.
