With all skincare products, especially if you have sensitive skin, there’s always a risk of allergic reactions which is why we always recommend you do a patch test before using one of products for the first time.

How to do a patch test?

Its a very simple procedure that means applying a small amount of product to a small patch of skin to see how it reacts. 

Here's 4 simple steps fir completing your patch test;

Step 1: Choose an area where the skin is delicate, like the inside of your wrist or the side of the neck. Or if you have skin affected by a skin condition pick a very small area of this skin.

Step 2: Take a small amount of product and apply to the area.

Step 3: Cover the area with a light bandage or plaster (do not use plasters on broken skin) and wait for 24 hours before taking it off.

Step 4: If you see no changes on your skin after 24 hours, then the product then your skin can tolerate it. However, if you experience any burning or itching sensation that lasts more than a a few seconds wash the affected area ASAP and do not continue use with the product. Once you take the bandage or plaster off if your skin is red, raised or itchy, then you probably have an allergy to the product and shouldn't continue using it.

We refund you if you have an allergic reaction to any of our products on first use. Send the product back to us mostly unused and we will refund you.
