Patch Testing Guide
Patch tests are an easy way to help predict if your client 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 based on the type of product.
Apply a small amount of the product onto a clean area of skin on the upper forearm and keep the area dry.
After 24 hours rinse the area, If any redness, burning, itching, blistering or irritation is observed at any time throughout the test, do not use the product.
Although rare a reaction can occur during treatment your client mentions any odd sensations or severe redness remove the product and use a cold compress on the area.
