Protecting Sensitive Skin: Innovation at the Heart of the New Cosmetics Regulations


Protecting Sensitive Skin: Innovation at the Heart of the New Cosmetics Regulations

Over the last decade, a significant increase in skin allergy cases has urged the European Union to tighten its regulations on allergens in cosmetic products. With implementation scheduled for 2026, this new policy aims not only to minimize allergic risk for consumers, but also to raise the standard of safety and protection, especially for individuals with sensitive skin, from infancy to adulthood. Let’s find out more about the impact of these regulations, and how Vernixa complies with them to guarantee skin well-being.

Allergens in Cosmetics: A Growing Public Health Issue

The presence of allergens in cosmetic products is a growing concern for consumers, and with good reason. Allergens, substances capable of triggering sometimes severe immune reactions, can be found in a wide range of beauty and personal care products. Until recently, regulations focused mainly on limiting the concentrations of certain substances and requiring them to be mentioned on labels.

Changes in Allergen Regulations

European legislation has evolved considerably to incorporate more precise diagnosis and stricter regulation of allergenic substances. More than 80 substances identified as potentially allergenic by scientific bodies are now subject to stricter concentration limits. This change aims to protect consumers by reducing their potential exposure to allergens, especially those with sensitive skin or those prone to allergic reactions.

Impact of the New Protective Measures

These new regulations not only impose clearer labelling of allergens present, but also force brands to rethink their formulas. With lower limits on permissible allergen concentrations, the cosmetics industry is invited to innovate by developing safer, gentler products for all skin types, paying particular attention to the needs of sensitive skin.

Vernixa: Pioneer in Safety Beauty

At Vernixa, we anticipate these regulatory changes by developing products designed with our users’ skin sensitivity in mind. Our product lines, such as Hydra Lavant and Hydra Crème, are designed to minimize the risk of allergies thanks to gentle formulations enriched with natural ingredients, while meeting these heightened regulatory requirements.

Hydra Lavant : Gentle cleansing and moisturizing

Our Hydra Lavant range is an excellent example of our commitment to safety and gentleness. Formulated with gentle cleansing agents and enriched with moisturizers, this range ensures effective cleansing without compromising the skin barrier. The absence of major allergens and the abundant presence of natural ingredients make it a preferred choice for even the most delicate skin.

Hydra Crème: Softness and Increased Protection

As for our Hydra Crème, it is designed to form a protective barrier against external irritants while providing deep moisturization. Its formulation, with no added fragrances and based on active ingredients selected for their benefits to the skin, perfectly meets the requirements of those looking for a gentle, protective skincare product.

Vernixa’s commitment to healthy, protected skin

Vernixa’s commitment doesn’t stop at complying with regulations; our aim is to exceed these standards by offering skin care products adapted to all skin types, even the most sensitive. By focusing on high-quality, natural ingredients, we are committed to providing safe products that not only respect but also nourish and protect the skin.

Prioritizing natural ingredients

Our philosophy is centered on the use of natural ingredients that support the skin’s natural defenses, minimizing the risk of exposure to potentially harmful allergens. This commitment reflects our desire to care for your skin while preserving the ecological balance.

Innovation and Safety at the Heart of Our Mission

At Vernixa, innovation is at the heart of our mission, but never at the expense of safety. We continue to develop formulas that seek to protect, nourish and respect every skin type, in line with regulatory advances.

I use Hydra Lavant daily to cleanse my four-year-old daughter: a real sensation of care on application, a delicate foam, a product that rinses off easily and leaves a perceptible protective film. Even after drying, the skin is supple and emollient. My daughter no longer feels any tightness, even in this winter season. As for me, I use it to remove my make-up in the shower, it's super gentle on the face and removes make-up residue without aggression. At last, a cleanser in which every ingredient has added value, and which truly respects fragile skin!
