Please note that the patch test is only indicative and not a guarantee that you will not have a reaction when using on larger areas of your body. Discontinue the use of any product if you develop any redness, itch or other skin reactions. If irritation occurs shortly after application onto the skin, rinse the product immediately with lukewarm water and gentle soap. If you are concerned about starting new concentrates, please consult a dermatologist prior to use.
Every skin is different and whilst we use pure, safe ingredients tested for their safety profile, you may have an individual intolerance to certain ingredients (in the same way most people can eat peanuts, and a few are allergic).
Conducting a patch test before using an [in]gred1ent for the first time is a simple way to help predict if you may have a negative initial reaction to a new product. So we recommend that you conduct a patch test before incorporating a new [in]gred1ent into your routine.
HERE IS HOW TO DO IT:
Apply a few drops of the pure concentrate onto a clean area of skin. We recommend to use the inside of the wrist or in the fold of the elbow as it is hidden whilst easy to check for any irritation.
Massage until penetrated. Keep the area dry for a few hours.
Then wait and keep checking for any discomfort that may occur over the next 24 hours.
If you have sensitive skin or a history of allergic reactions, we recommend that you repeat the application of the new concentrate a few days later, as this is the time it takes for the body to generate antibodies in case of allergies.
