3. Personal Data
Skinfo retrieves relevant information from authorities and organizations where chemists, researchers and business experts have provided relevant information on substances in cosmetics and skin care products and which may pose a risk to health indirectly or directly, and other available information related to ingredients.
The original ingredient list is always available in the widget.
Please note that information may change over time as new information on substances may be available and the content of products may also be changed by manufacturers. Therefore, always check that ingredients listed in the Skinfo App, Website or Service match the physical product ingredient label.
Skinfo does not have access to specific concentrations of the ingredients listed on products. The data is general without consideration to the concentration, based on the knowledge available to us regarding ingredients. We assume that companies follow the current EU and industry guidelines that are required to distribute their products. We are constantly working to improve information and welcome feedback.
Some assumptions in the product ingredient list have been made on special occasions where unclear/missing information or misspellings have occurred in the product ingredient list. Initial descriptions from sources have been simplified to provide information in an easily understandable format.
Customers to Skinfo can choose how transparent their ingredient list will be presented. Some ingredient data is optional such as concerns, which may not be presented in the widget. Always visit Skinfo Search for full transparency.
Skinfo is not liable for any inaccurate data from its original source or the data presented on the Website, Service or App.
The content found on the Website, App or Service is not to be considered as personal advice. Always seek professional help for consultation related to your skin and health. Skinfo AB takes no responsibility for any consequences that may arise from actions or actions taken based on the content in the Website, App or Service.
The available version of the App (on AppStore and GooglePlay) should be considered a test version. Some deviations may therefore occur.
