Dictionary: Hypoallergenic

If a product states that it is "Hypoallergenic", this simply means that it is less likely to contain ingredients that could cause an allergic reaction, so by theory, Hypoallergenic Products should be suitable for most people.

However, it's important to remember that Hypo comes from the Greek word meaning "below normal", so it can not be entirely ruled as 100% safe, especially if you are particularly sensitive to allergens, and often suffer allergic reactions, such as rashes, breathing difficulties (typically asthma-related), then it is still important to be very careful whenever possible.
