HERBATINT PATCH TEST ON SENSITIVE SKIN
The latest study, carried out on hair colorings by the main French independent consumers testing organization, ranked Herbatint in first position among 18 well known and most popular brands, some being marketed as “natural hair dye. Strong of this result, Antica Erboristeria, decided to go deeper and for the first time tested this product dermatologically on sensitive skin, through an independent laboratory referenced by Cosmetica Italia, the main Italian professional association forcosmetic industry.
What is a Patch Test?
A patch test is a method used to determine whether a specific substance causes allergic inflammation of a patient's skin. Patch tests were been carried out on Herbatint’s shades formulated with the highest concentrations in coloring agents. These patch tests consisted in the application of the Herbatint product, by a dermatologist, on volunteers' skin so to observe and analyses the possible skin reactions to the product.
How Herbatint colorants have been tested?
The first step consisted in the application of the product to a skin area on the back, under semi-occlusive patch and during 45 minutes, this time corresponding to the processing time of Herbatint hair dye. The skin compatibility has been monitored before patching and after patch removal (30 minutes after and 24 hours after patch removal).
Who tested the products?
According to the patch test protocol, signed with the testing laboratory, the subjects of this study needed to have an orthoergic skin reactivity (sensitive skin). An orthoergic reaction is a reaction of the nervous system that results in red patches or mild edema and lasts from a few hours to 48 hours after exposure to aggressive substances.
The subjects of this study, 20 people aged from 19 to 64 years, 68% women, were selected according to these criteria (sensitive skin). For almost 40% of them the skin reactions previously observed were related to the use of some cosmetic products.
What are the results?
Under the experimental conditions adopted, the application of Herbatint induced no significant reaction or irritation. In conclusion, over the 160 tests carried out, the full Herbatint color range showed a good to very good (top of the scale) skin compatibility on subjects with reactive skin *.
This result confirms Herbatint as a premium hair colorant thanks to its balanced, gentle and unique formula, been suitable even for people with sensitive skin or, generally, concerned about the health of their hair and scalp.
* Only 5 tests out of 160 gave an orthoergic reaction which were all ranked as a 0.5 level, meaning “very slight erythema – barely perceptible”.
