Cosmetic products come into direct contact with human surfaces during use and may cause adverse reactions including skin reactions if the product is faulty. CD Formulation can develop patch tests for clients as safety assessment tests to detect the potential for adverse skin reactions to ensure the safety of cosmetic use.
Cosmetics come into direct contact with human surfaces during use, and if there are problems with the product, it may cause serious consequences including skin reactions. Therefore, several tests must be performed before a cosmetic product is marketed to ensure its safety when used. One common cosmetic safety test is the patch test, which detects the potential for the subject to cause adverse skin reactions in humans.
CD Formulation offers the most common types of skin patch tests, including closed patch tests, repetitive open patch tests, and repetitive damage patch tests.
Select a qualified patch test device with an area of no more than 50 mm2 and a depth of about 1 mm. Put the test substance into the small chamber of the spot test device with the dosage of about 0.02 g-0.025 g (solid or semi-solid) or 0.02 mL-0.025 mL (liquid). When the test substance is the original cosmetic product, the control hole is a blank control, and when the test substance is a diluted cosmetic product, the diluent of the cosmetic product is used in the control hole. The test specimen was applied to the curved side of the forearm with hypoallergenic tape, and the test specimen was applied to the skin with gentle pressure with the palm of the hand for 24 h. The skin reaction was observed after the removal of the test specimen and the results were recorded.
