Safety

Human Primary Skin Irritation Test

Skin irritation closed patch tests were conducted on 51 subjects in good health. No effects on the skins of all subjects were observed within 24hrs, which means, no primary irritations were recognized. Moreover, the product was compared with Squalane by conducting skin irritation closed patch tests on 25 healthy subjects. The results after 72hrs of observation were negative, the same result as Squalane. No primary irritations were found.


Human Contact Allergy Test

Allergenic and sensitization effect tests were conducted on 207 subjects in good health in comparison to Squalane. Closed patch tests on the upper part of the back of each subject were carried out 10 times during a period of three and a half weeks to observe allergenic reactions. Furthermore, after a 14-day rest, the 11th application was performed to examine sensitization. On both examinations, the results after 48hrs showed no allergenic and sensitization effect on human.
