Patch Test Guide

Patch Test Guide

Patch tests are a quick way to know if you will have any adverse reaction to a new product. It is always recommended you perform a patch test before incorporating a new product into your routine. We have outlined a general method below to help you.

How to conduct a patch test?

1. Apply a small amount of the product to a dry area of skin behind the ears or the upper back, outer arm or just underneath the jawline taking note of what product was applied where.
2. Rinse after 24 hours, but if you are prone to reactions it is a good idea to leave on for 48 hours to allow for any delayed reactions.
3. If any redness, burning, itching, blistering or irritation is observed at any time throughout the test, discontinue use of the product.

Scrub, exfoliants, AHA/BHA cream, retinol and retinoids usually have a higher chance of causing irritation if used incorrectly depending on your skin state so do follow the individual guidelines for each product to reduce the risk of irritation for your skin.

Please note the patch test will only give you some indication of initial reactions to products and does not guarantee results when applied to other areas of the body/face or over continued use. It also does not take into account any underlying conditions. If you are concerned about use please consult your doctor.
