Fibromyalgia patients often experience negative reactions to beauty products because of fragrances and/ or ingredients that prove too overwhelming to their systems. The result: Dry skin, headaches, nausea, rashes, and a general overall ill feeling.
But few fibromyalgia women want to totally give up their beauty routines and make-up. Therefore, instead of giving up what makes them feel beautiful, they need to seek out new products that do just that, in a way that works better for them. Salicylate free products are a great place to start that search.
Despite their inclusion in multiple pain products, many fibromyalgia patients report adverse reactions to salicylic-acid. Salicylic acid also appears in a variety of beauty products and personal care items like toothpaste. It is a natural chemical that protects against bacteria, fungus and more in plants. Most people tolerate it well. But manufacturers of all these products are picking up on the fact that a large portion of the population can’t consume salicylic-acid because of health problems like fibromyalgia. Even people without health concerns fear getting sick from questionable ingredients, so are looking for alternatives.
