Our hands are the most exposed areas of our body during handling. Faced with the risks of cuts, burns, abrasions, but also with the risk of skin reactions, it is important to choose suitable protective gloves. In order to protect our particularly sensitive hands, it is important to ensure that our personal protective equipment is both resistant and comfortable. Wearing them for any length of time should not cause itching, skin irritation or allergies, even on sensitive skin. The Dermatest® certification guarantees the operator’s well-being and optimum safety.
Presentation of the Dermatest® Institute
Dermatest® is an independent scientific institute founded in 1978 by a German dermatologist. Its mission is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of all products that come into contact with the skin’s surface. The hygiene and cosmetic industries are the first industries concerned, but they are not the only ones.
Scientific, dermatological and biological methods, applied during in-depth clinical studies, allow the Dermatest® Institute, to accurately measure the effectiveness and safety of the product. Dermatologists and allergists from the Dermatest® Institute recognized for their international expertise, conduct these tests with complete impartiality.
What does the Dermatest® label certify?
A Dermatest® certified product ensures maximum efficiency and excellent skin tolerance, guaranteeing safety for the user. Cosmetic products such as make-up, face masks, sun protection and hygiene products including soaps, shower gels and shampoos represent the majority of products submitted to Dermatest® tolerance tests.
Once tested and validated by the institute, the products are certified “Original Dermatest” with several levels of appreciation: Good, Very good, Excellent. These categories provide information on the quality of the formulas and materials used in the products and their tolerance.
