Allergy & Skin Sensitivity Testing

Skin Sensitivity & Allergy Tests

It is impossible to create skin care products which everyone will tolerate, particularly in view of the fact that people's sensitivity has increased. We therefore advise testing your Melanie’s Garden product on the area of skin in the crook of the elbow, where the skin is thinner and more sensitive. This way you'll be able to determine whether or not you are likely to have an allergic reaction to what you have applied. This should be done with any product you purchase.

How to test yourself for a Sensitivity or Allergy

Choose an area in the crook of your elbow of a few square centimetres and apply the product or raw material you wish to test. Leave for 12-24 hours and then look for any signs of allergic reaction. The test may even be repeated the next day. Signs of an allergic reaction include red, warm skin, perhaps also itchy and/or with a rash. If an allergic reaction occurs do not use the product. Unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility for any skin reactions that do occur.
