The extent of filtering for products is shown in one of the screenshots, and can be seen on the skinsafe website. They are broad swaths of general categories. My patch testing from years ago indicated allergies to specific chemicals that can be used for multiple purposes in a wide variety of products. Which of the “common allergens” do carba mix components (rubber accelerator chemicals frequently found in personal care products, with various names like Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate) fall under? You can’t filter for specific ingredients and their aliases or related chemicals, so the app over simplifie, resulting in either limiting your products too much, or completely missing allergens, or risking missed allergens because we can’t tell what is actually included.
Not gluten free accurate
I was sooo excited to have another app to check allergen ingredients for skin care and makeup. Sadly, too good to be true. It seems they’re only scanning the ingredients, there no in-depth research. I recently found a bunch of Beautycounter products listed as gluten free that contain ingredients the Beautycounter lists on their website as derived from wheat, rye, and barley, particularly, beta-glucan, diheptyl succinate, hydrolyzed hyaluronic a is, sclerotium gum, and sodium hyaluronate.
Hoping future versions fix this issue. I can only assume all the gluten free labels are unchecked and would not feel safe about any other allergens either.
Like another reviewer said, this app does not do extra research on items to check if they are truly gluten-free, it just scans the ingredient list. This is useful for things things that have gluten, but not things that supposedly don’t.
I would also like to search by things that contain a certain allergen rather than ones that are free of that allergen.
Overall, huge potential. I’m hoping it gets improved.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
