For 5 Star Seal
For in-use trials on the area of intended use, to award the 5-star seal (minimum requirement: product is used for four weeks by 20 test subjects). This offers the maximum possible certainty, ruling out the possibility of subsequent skin reactions for all groups of purchasers and users to the maximum extent possible. Products which have been tested in this way receive the designation “Clinically tested”.
We can also help you on perform physiological measurements and give questionnaires before and after use to evaluate users’ subjective experience of the product. A patch test at the end of
the trial offers the option of verifying that no allergies have developed during the period of application.
The 3-Star the seal
Will be awarded by our partners for short-term testing on the area of intended use, or for long-term tests of skin characteristics or skin function on areas of skin other than the area of intended use. This includes, for example, measuring the extent to which a face cream improves skin hydration by testing it on the forearm.
No of product is needed for testing
The amount of product required for in-use tests are highly dependent on trial design. A sufficient sample product should be provided for each test subject for the period for which it is going to be applied (e.g. 4 weeks). It also depends on how often the product is to be applied and the size of the site to which it is to be applied. In addition, we need retained samples and, if possible, a few spare product samples. For in-use trials, each test subject needs to be able to be provided with an individual supply of the product, and subjects must be able to use the product in the required manner easily at home.
Documentation Required to start the process
In addition to product samples, we need an ingredients list incorrect INCI format or the composition of the test product. As order confirmation, we require that you sign and return the trial protocol we will provide it to you.
Timeframe of testing at Dermatest
When an in-use trial can commence and how long it takes is highly dependent on the trial design, the inclusion criteria and, linking in with the latter, subject availability. Trials involve a recruitment phase, the use phase, and a reporting phase. A definitive schedule can be produced as soon as we receive the product, and will be documented in the trial protocol provided by our partners to you.
Our partners also undertake skin compatibility testing of consumer goods, medical devices, and biocides.
