our mission 

The Product Elimination Diet has helped thousands who suffer from eczema, rosacea, and sensitive skin to pare down and eliminate products that aggravate their skin with a 3-Step process of elimination, skin product diet and reintroduction. We will continue to update and curate the list products that should be used for patients suffering from irritated skin.

Offer an expanded list of products vetted, reviewed, and curated by Dr. Skotnicki with a focus on ingredients, safety and efficacy. These products will be different than those offered on the PED list.
