Let's find out together when a product is dermatologically tested.
It often reassures us to read that a product has been dermatologically tested; it immediately gives us the feeling that it is safer on the skin.
Have you ever wondered how this testing takes place and why it is so important?
We are here to give you the answers you are looking for.The acronym Dermatologically Tested means that the product in question has been tested on a number of volunteers to study its effects on different skin types.
But how does this testing take place?
Under the supervision of a dermatologist, a few patches (occlusive patches) containing the products to be tested are applied and kept on the volunteer's arm for about 72 hours.
Checks occur the first 48 hours and finally after the 72 hours have passed, to assess any irritative effects on the skin, and then confirm their tolerability.
If at the end of 72 hours, the product passes the test, it can be registered and will carry the initials Dermatologically Tested.
So products that pass the test are safer even for those with delicate skin?
The answer is yes, the initials Dermatologically Tested is always a guarantee of the quality of the product, which passing the test did not cause irritative or allergic reactions on different skin types.
