STUDY 1: HRIPT
HRIPT (Human Repeat Insult Patch Test) is a commonly used method within the industry that determines the irritation and allergic contact sensitization potential of a product. The test is conducted under the supervision of a dermatologist who signs each report. Pending the results of the study, claims related to “hypo-allergenic,” “dermatologist tested” and “non-irritating” can be made on the product label. This is an industry recognized test and follows the GCP guidelines.
