Safety when using our products – performing a skin test.
Although all of our products are tested rigorously we cannot be sure that in individual cases reactions may occur. Mainly due to a specific ingredient used within one of our products. In order to prevent this scenario we request that you perform a small skin test before applying any of our products especially to large or sensitive areas.
To perform a skin test
- Rub a small amount of the product on a piece of skin
- Leave for a period of time
- If a reaction occurs do not use the product
