Feminine products have become a popular alternative to the traditionally male products, including shampoo and conditioner.
But these products are also often marketed to a younger audience and come with potentially higher risk of allergic reactions.
Now, there’s hope that some of these feminine cleansers may be better for your skin than your traditional face scrub.
New research from a team of researchers at the University of California, San Francisco suggests that there are potentially more effective and less risky feminine cleanser ingredients that are not harmful to sensitive skin.
“We think there’s an opportunity for these products to have a positive impact on people’s skin and reduce the risk of allergies,” said lead author Amanda J. L. Levesque, an assistant professor of clinical dermatology at UCSF and senior author of the study.
“They could be a viable alternative to traditional products in the future.”
In addition to its ingredients, feminine products have a number of other features that make them appealing for people with sensitive skin and their families.
Some of these features include: They are formulated with a low level of preservatives and may be made from plant oils, but do not contain chemical fragrances or artificial ingredients.
They have been tested on the skin of more than 1,000 people, and the average number of allergies was only 4 percent.
They are relatively inexpensive and are available in a variety of fragrance and scent styles.
Some feminine cleanses contain botanicals such as ginger and aloe vera, which can have a soothing effect on skin.
And some of the products are made with ingredients that contain ingredients that can cause sensitization, which means they could lead to a reaction.
So far, the study found that about half of the feminine cleansings tested had ingredients that caused a response.
Some have even been found to contain ingredients called triclosan, which has been linked to skin sensitization and allergies.
So while feminine cleanseries may be more affordable than traditional products, they could still be harmful to the skin.
For example, some of those that contain tricloosan can cause skin irritation, which is why dermatologists advise consumers to avoid using products that contain this chemical.
Other products are less likely to cause skin sensitizing reactions.
“It’s possible that we’re finding some good ingredients, but it’s also possible that there may be things that are potentially dangerous,” Levesques said.
“For example, we’re looking at triclocarban, which was developed to be a safe, non-comedogenic, antimicrobial, skin-softening agent that has been shown to be effective at reducing the risk and the incidence of dermatitis.”
The study was published online in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.

“There’s a huge market for feminine hygiene products, but we wanted to look at the ingredients and how they work together and to look for differences in how these products interact with skin and how much they affect our skin,” said Levesques.
For the study, Levesq and colleagues recruited 101 female participants who were participating in a study designed to measure their sensitization to triclopyr to see if there were differences between the women and men.
Participants also completed questionnaires to help identify potential allergens and other potential triggers for sensitization.
Participants were asked to complete a survey that measured their reactions to tricyclolone, a synthetic triclorolone preservative, and to answer a questionnaire about their exposure to troclocarban, a natural fragrance that has an anti-inflammatory effect.
The study participants also filled out a skin-tinting test, which measured how sensitive the participants’ skin was to different scents.
The team also looked at the skin and blood samples of the participants, to confirm the results.
The participants were also asked to report their personal experience with the products, whether they were using a different brand of feminine cleaning product, and if they had used any of the brands previously.
The results showed that most participants in the study used a feminine cleansing product containing triclonlosan.
“If you’re using a feminine cleaning, that’s a safe and effective ingredient,” Leveques said.
But, the team found that some products, such as those with synthetic tricycles, may not be suitable for sensitive skin, especially those with high concentrations of triclusolone.
And, if you are allergic to tricolons, you may not want to use these products.
“In terms of sensitization testing, we found that there was a small effect, but this is something that we need to better understand,” said Lecrae.
“These are ingredients that have
