  1. The premise of ingredient conflict is the self-matching of ingredients in different products, because the amount of self-matching is difficult to accurately control; if it is in one product, there is no need to worry.
  2. Avoid using conflicting ingredients at the same time, but you can choose to use them separately in the morning and evening.
