Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) has been linked to the prevalence of toxic synthetic ingredients in our daily lives, including our makeup products. There are steps you can take to minimize its effects and lower your risk of developing MCS.
Choosing makeup for multiple chemical sensitivity is an effective and important step.What is MCS? There is sensitive skin, and then there is skin with multiple chemical sensitivity. Two very different conditions. Sensitive skin is a skin type that is irritated by certain ingredients, chemical or natural. MCS is a severe sensitivity to a variety of pollutants – Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), solvents, synthetic fragrance, and petro-chemicals – and can occur in any skin type.
