What is the difference between Vanicream Skin Cream and Vanicream Lite Lotion?
The ingredients of both products are identical. The concentration of ingredients has been adjusted to give the lotion a lighter more lotion-like feel.
Are Vanicream's products non-comedogenic?
They have tested products in Vanicream's line that are considered "leave on" products such as the Vanicream Skin Cream, and all of the Vanicream Sunscreens. Vanicream has even tested the Vanicream Cleansing Bar. They are all non-comedogenic. "Rinse off" products such as the shampoo do not pose a risk of comedogenicity and therefore have not been tested.
Do Vanicream's products contain nut ingredients?
No, they do not use ingredients known to be made from common nut sources (e.g., peanuts and tree nuts such as almonds, cashews, or walnuts). Some shampoo or cleanser ingredients may be made from coconuts. However, coconuts are not actually nuts; they are seeds.
The primary purpose of Pharmaceutical Specialties Inc., the makers of Vanicream, is to make products for people with sensitive skin. They know from the responses of both physicians who recommend their products, and patients that use them, that they have achieved considerable success toward this goal. None-the-less, they know that they will probably never be able to help every person with sensitive skin.
You can be assured that PSI goes to great lengths to select ingredients that are safe and effective, are suitable for customers, and then they continuously test and monitor them for quality. Likewise, their finished products undergo evaluation by their Quality Control and Quality Assurance departments as well as outside testing organizations. They know that allergies are on the rise, and they remain vigilant and will revise their formulas, and will rule-out ingredients as knowledge in the area advances. Clearly, anyone with severe allergies or contact sensitivities with unknown causes should contact their physician to see if a skin test is recommended before using any of their products when an ingredient may be of concern.
