Each company uses a variety of ingredients, actives, and delivery systems in their formulations and it's possible the ‘actives’ could be incompatible. Active ingredients are what make a product effective. The problem that occurs with mixing the wrong actives is that they can turn into a potential irritant and aggravate existing conditions or cause allergic reactions.
