Patch Testing Guide

Patch testing is an easy way to determine if you have a sensitivity or allergy to a new product. Before adding a new product into your skincare routine, it is recommended that a patch test be performed. Here is a general method of how to conduct a patch test.

1.) Chose a clear area of skin to test on. The inside of your elbow or upper arm are good places. Some prefer to use the area behind their ear.

2.) Cleanse and dry the area.

3.) Apply a small amount of the product to the area.

4.) Do not get wet or apply any other products to the area for 24 hours. For rinse-off items that indicate a specific treatment time, rinse the area once that time has elapsed.

5.) Monitor the area. If you experience any redness, rash, itching, burning or observe irritation do not continue use. 

Please be aware that the patch test is intended to test for initial reaction and does not guarantee the same results on other areas of the body or continued use.
