Professor Robyn O’Hehir, Director of Allergy, Immunology and Respiratory Medicine, said many creams – even for the treatment of dry skin and eczema – are advertised as ‘natural’ products.  “Surprisingly, some of these products contain foods which are known to cause allergy,” Professor O’Hehir said.

“Goat’s milk, cow’s milk, nut oils and oats are common ingredients in ‘natural’ cosmetics.”

Professor O’Hehir said the study, published this month in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice, was the first to demonstrate in the laboratory evidence of a link between topical application of cosmetics and the subsequent development of food allergy.
