Preservative MI in Clarins Lait Demaquillant Causes Woman to Break Out in Red Sores
Clarins Lait Demaquillant Causes Woman To Break Out in Red Sores
Karen Mooney 52 was left with red sores and welts all over her face after using the Clarins Lait Demaquillant cleanser.
The owner of the dating agency found that she had an allergy to methylisothiazoline (MI) which is a preservative in the Clarins cream.
Ms Mooney used the Clarins face cleanser and found that welts appeared all over her face. The products she used were Lait Demaquillant Cleansing Milk and Extra Firming Day Cream.
Karen has been using Clarins products for twenty years and the welts breakout was the first time that she had suffered an allergic reaction to the cosmetics.
She was given hydrocortisone cream by her doctor to try and clean up her face sores but it didn’t have any affect. Two months after the initial allergic reaction she found that the sores were so painful she couldn’t cover them with make up.
The cause of the welts were discovered when she visited a consultant dermatologist at Ashford and St Peters Hospital in Surrey Dr Olivia O’Gorman- Lalor. She tested Karen and found that she had suffered an extreme allergic reaction to Clarins’ Lait Demaquillant Cleansing Milk.
She now has to stop using all cosmetic products with MI in of which she explains are difficult to find.
Clarins’ believe that Karen’s case is “isolated” and said that “It is inevitable that someone somewhere will be unable to tolerate a particular ingredient or combination of ingredients within a product or formula.”
The Daily Mail reported that.
“Its ingredients are approved by the European Commission and its safety is reviewed by the Scientific Committee of Consumer Safety. Clarins would not however confirm whether it had recently changed its formulations to include MI.”
