NakedPoppy

Beauty shopping for your sensitive skin

Get personalized clean makeup and skincare recommendations scientifically screened for ingredients that can trigger your skin sensitivities.

TAKE YOUR BEAUTY ASSESSMENT

NakedPoppy has been a game-changer. I have extreme chemical sensitivities and it’s been so overwhelming to navigate all the different brands and read a million ingredients on a label. It's such a relief to have someone else do all the research to curate a product list that is not only pretty much spot on for my complexion/skin type, but also that is safe for my very sensitive body.

STRESS-FREE

–HANNAH W.

Makeup you’ll love, without the ingredients you don’t

Eliminate Common Triggers

Every product on NakedPoppy is screened by our scientists to be free of ingredients that commonly cause skin reactions because they aren’t considered clean (including formaldehyde releasers, synthetic fragrance, and parabens).

Avoid Specific Ingredients

If you know what irritates your skin or causes a reaction, tell us what you want to avoid — essential oils, tree nuts, peanuts, and more — and we’ll curate products without them just for you.

Pinpoint Your Best Products

NakedPoppy’s highly intelligent online assessment matches you with your perfect makeup and skincare, automatically removing any products that are likely to irritate your skin.

A Science-Based Approach to Makeup Ingredients Screening

Identifying specific ingredients is complex because they often go by many different International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) names and require extensive scientific knowledge to identify. For example, did you know peanut oil is actually called “Arachis Hypogaea Oil”?

NakedPoppy's in-house beauty scientist reviews each ingredient in every product we offer to correctly map irritants and ensure that they meet the highest clean standards based on the latest research. Our team has spent years building a proprietary database of cosmetic ingredients and developed a detailed map of INCI names as they pertain to irritants so that we can screen the ingredient list for each product in our store.

Before NakedPoppy, looking for makeup was so awful for me because of how sensitive I am and because I want clean products. I don’t have enough good things to say about your site, your products, and your customer service…My stress levels when trying to find mascara have gone from a 10 to a 1.
