Make up products / ranges free from MCI / MI are given below.
With ingredients listed on their site, and their search function including ingredients in the results, a search for ‘methylisothiazolinone’ only throws up one product – the Nail Art Pens, which come in four colours and contain our troublesome enemies. All other Barry M products would appear to be MI-free, but double check the site before you buy. We have contacted Barry M and will update this page when confirmation has been received. You can browse products on Amazon here.

A search on the US site reveals a number of products with MI, but no make-up (all ingredients shown on the site). A statement on the UK site – posted on our Facebook page – confirms that all leave-on products are MI-free (this may not apply outside the EU) so would imply that mascaras, lipsticks and eye liners, for example, are safe. (Warning: many L’Oreal haircare products, especially, contain MI.)
High-tolerance cosmetics which are free-from a wide range of problematic ingredients, including MI and other ingredients such as phenoxyethanol and parabens (both preservatives), as well as essential oils, wheat / gluten, salicylates and much more. See full ‘free from’ attributes here. Best products are its Lengthening Mascara and its Pencil Eye Liner. Buy online at Amazon here.
