We are very pleased to be launching this new factsheet – which can be accessed on our website.



This factsheet is designed to address some of the questions which people affected by severe food allergies may have on this subject. It focuses on food ingredients that are present in non food products and it is therefore aimed at people with food allergies. It does not cover sensitivity to chemicals (such as paraphenylenediamine found in hair dye).


Products covered by this factsheet:

  • Cosmetics
  • Personal care products and toiletries
  • Medicines
  • Massage oils
  • Condoms


The information contained within the factsheet has been certified by the Information Standard as reliable information. The Information Standard is a certification scheme for health and social care information. It has been established by the Department of Health to help patients and the public make informed choices about their lifestyle, their condition and their options for treatment and care.
