Many people are very sensitive to Skin Care and many young children are showing signs of irritation or sensitivity as well.
I am a Skin Care Consultant of the Ultra Premium Swiss Skin Care and I know that all their entire range of Ultra Premium Skin
Care products from their Anti-aging range for Women or Men to the
Detoxifying body skin care range based on Sea botanicals to their
beautiful range of Children Skin Care are tested using the HRIPT (
Human Repeat Insult Patch Test). These tests measure the skin reaction
of a product on a scale from 0-8 on 50 to 100 people. This Swiss Ultra
Premium company only releases products that test to 0. Most other companies call their products hypoallergenic if they rate under a 4.
What is Human Repeat Insult Patch Test (HRIPT)
For decades, this test has been used worldwide to determine if a
material has the potential to cause contact sensitization or skin
allergies. (Stotts, 1980). In the HRIPT, a small patch of the test
material (smaller than the pad of a standard plaster) is applied for 24
hours to the upper arm of each of 50 to 100 volunteer panelists. The
material is reapplied three times a week for three weeks at the same
site on the upper arm. After a two week rest period, the test material
is applied again at the same site. If the test material causes a
contact allergy, the test site will appear red, and may be slightly
swollen or itchy.
