    Thanks - I've just started treatment for rosacea and it's made a world of difference to the allergies, clearly it was irritating my skin making it far far more sensitive!

    Thanks for all your comments

    Agree with Coxy11 - Tropic is the most natural brand I have found.

    Natural does not automatically mean better or less allergenic.  I personally know people allergic to anything derived from coconut, I'm allergic to avocado. 

    It is good they list the origin of ingredients as well as the INCI though, while it's probably for greenwashing purposes it does help people such as those allergic to anything from particular plants!

    I have rosacea (and just about every other skin problem!) and avoid anything with SLS (sodium laurel sulphate), parabens or perfumes in. I also have a problem with liquid paraffin (used in lots of creams and cosmetics). I have discovered Skin Shop online and use their Clarol range. I use Lavera eye make up and Lavera shampoo. Good luck!
