To create the list, Ipsy worked with The Agyekum Group Consulting (TAGC), which developed a screening and vetting process to help make the decisions. 

The company plans to add and update the list as new science emerges through research and ingredient transparency.

Just some ingredients on the list include:

  • Ethanolamines

  • Formaldehydes

  • Hydroquinone

  • Phthalates

  • PFAS

  • Shellac

  • Triphenyl phosphate

The full list includes all ingredients, including fragrance restrictions, and the reasoning behind each decision.
