How to conduct an at-home patch test: Patch tests are an easy way to help predict if you will have a negative initial reaction to a new product. It is recommended to perform a patch test before incorporating a new product into your routine. We have outlined a general method for conducting your own patch test.
- Apply a small amount of the product onto a clean area of skin on the upper forearm.
- Keep the area dry, preferably covered with a bandage.
- After 24 hours, uncover the area and rinse.
- If any redness, burning, itching, blistering or irritation is observed at any time throughout the test, do not use the product.
Please note that the patch test is only for determining initial irritation reactions to products and does not guarantee similar results when applied to other areas of the body (including the face) or after continuous use. It does not account for underlying conditions and should not be used for the diagnosis of hypersensitivity or allergic contact dermatitis. If you are concerned about starting a new product, please consult a dermatologist prior to use.
Contraindications: This formula should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in provided Directions.
