The "Coping with Rosacea" booklet from the National Rosacea Society says to avoid the following ingredients:
- Fragrance, Alcohol, Witch Hazel, menthol, peppermint, eucalyptus oil, clove oil
Is this a reasonably complete list of common ingredients that can irritate rosacea skin? And, if so, is this pretty true for all rosacea-sufferers?
I thought it varied quite a bit. The 1st two are definitely right for me, and I think menthol bothers me too, but I don't know about the others. And I keep seeing other oils (tea tree, jojoba, etc) mentioned as potentially good for rosacea, so I wonder about the oils explicitly mentioned as bad...
