Why trust Vanicream Skin Care products

From the founders Conrad Thompson and Ed Mansfield (2010)

"In 1974 we were both pharmacists working in a local hospital. Neither of us had any thoughts of starting a manufacturing company. However, at that time we worked closely with dermatologists and understood the needs of their patients. Because of our extensive experience formulating products, it was suggested by several dermatologists that we start a company to make better products than were commercially available for people with sensitive skin."

And they did.

You can be assured that Vanicream goes to great lengths to select ingredients that are safe effective, are suitable for their customers, and then they continuously test and monitor them for quality.

Irritating Preservatives

Irritating preservatives are used to prevent microbial growth, unfortunately by their own nature, cause irritation to the skin of many people. Preservatives are the second most common cause of cosmetic allergic contact dermatitis. Examples of irritating preservatives are:

  • Methylchloroisothiazolinone (MCI)
  • Methylisothiazolinone (MIT/MI)

Formaldehyde Releasers

Formaldehyde releasers preserve a product against bacterial, mold and fungus contamination. Unfortunately, formaldehyde also causes irritation and allergic problems for some people. Examples of formaldehyde releasers:

  • Bronopol
  • Diazolidinyl Urea
  • DMDM Hydantoin
  • Imidazolidinyl Urea
  • MDM Hydantoin
  • Quaternium 15


Parabens are preservatives that guard against mold, fungus, or bacteria growth. Examples of parabens are:

  • Benzylparaben
  • Butylparaben
  • Ethylparaben
  • Methylparaben
  • Propylparaben

Lanolin & Derivatives

Lanolin and derivatives contribute properties to skin products that help moisturize. Lanolin is not a pure product but a complex combination of many substances that are difficult to separate and may carry over to derivatives. Some of these substances can cause skin irritation to sensitive skin and may produce skin sensitization. Examples of lanolins are:

  • Lanolin (hydrous and anhydrous)
  • Hydrogenated Lanolin
  • Lanolin Alcohol
  • Wool Fat
  • Wool Wax
  • Alcohols (Wool Alcohol)


Surfactants serve several functions but are best known for their cleaning or detergent use; in addition they are used for improved foaming action in many personal care products. Unfortunately, some surfactants are known skin sensitizers and/or skin irritants. Examples of these surfactants include: 

Betaine Surfactant:
  • Cocamidopropyl Betaine (CAPB)
Sulfate Surfactants:
  • Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)
  • Sodium laureth sulfate (SLES)
  • Ammonium lauryl sulfate (ALS)
