How to Minimize Skin Reactions if You Have Sensitive Skin or Allergies

At Cleure we strive to formulate our products to not include irritating ingredients and to be hypoallergenic. However, this is a daunting task since there are so many types of sensitive skin.

Cleure is on the list of several verified dermatologists list of being free of common allergens. Even if you were recommended by a dermatologist who use the list of brands to recommend, we have many customers who with their type of sensitive skin, can use all of our products, others can only use a few.

To help you minimize the chance of a negative reaction, we list all ingredients under each product. If you know what ingredients you are allergic or sensitive to, it's easy to see if a product contains them.

We recommend if you are either new to Cleure products or want to try any of our products for the first time, to follow the instructions below for a self patch test with one product at a time.

If you have any apprehension about an ingredient, check with your physician or health care practitioner. It's always a good idea to see a dermatologist or allergist, to determine this information with a professional self patch test. We have a 30 day money back guarantee. Cleure products are not meant to treat or cure any health related conditions but to help manage and minimize them.

How To Do a Self Patch Test

You may want to try a sample size of a products first. Although, non-refundable, trial/sample sizes (found under each category) are an easy and inexpensive way to test a product you are interested in.

The following are easy steps on how to do your own patch test:

  • Use the inside of your wrist as a starting point. It's thinner than the rest of your body skin. The side of the neck is another good option to check for compatibility.

  • Apply a small amount of the product to one of these areas.

  • Cover the area with a bandage.

  • If a reaction, such as slight pink appears but subsides within 10-15 minutes, don't worry about it. Certain ingredients such as AHA's or other ingredients may give a temporary reaction.

If after 24 hours, you don't see any reaction, then you're fine with the product.


You can try a small amount on the inside of your elbow, cover it. In 24 hours rinse it off and apply again. Repeat this process for 7 days. If no reactions are seen, you should be ok with this product. As mentioned before, it's always best to consult a physician about patch testing before using a new product.
