welcome to the almay site for professionals!

Almay pioneered the development of hypoallergenic color cosmetics and skin care products and has over 75 years of experience in the field, making Almay a leader in cosmetics products for people with sensitive skin.

One of the site's main features is Almay's Product Formulary and Cosmetic Guide. This Guide is intended to be more than simply a listing of cosmetic formulations; the objective is to offer an indication for each preparation and to provide functions for each of the ingredients in the product.

Addtionally, in the absence of an official guideline for claims of hypoallergenicity, the Almay Cosmetic Control System describes the criteria and high standards used in the manufacture of Almay hypoallergenic products. Testing standards have been expanded to assure low comedogenic potential as well as low irritancy potential.

Almay takes great pride in the services it offers to physicians and their patients. We trust that the information provided within this site will contribute to more effective cosmetic care of patients and consumers.
