A summary of the Dermacolor Camouflage Cream test approval

To begin with, a total of 100 patients were subjected to testing of the skin of their backs for periods of time ranging from 48 to 72 hours. These tests were performed by applying Dermacolor Camouflage Cream to an adhesive test bandage and then applying the bandage to the skin for the periods stated above.

 

All these tests were carried out on inpatients who were observed at different phases of the test. No skin intolerance reaction to the Dermacolor Camouflage Cream was observed.

 

In a second series of tests, Dermacolor Camouflage Cream was applied to the skin of the face, neck, and ear regions. These tests were administered to patients who were known to exhibit sensitivity in these skin regions.

 

This testing was performed on 22 patients with skin sensitivity, on areas of skin which had already exhibited changes. No irritation of the skin was observed with these patients. The conclusion is that Dermacolor Camouflage Cream is satisfactorily tolerated by the skin and no sensitive reactions were observed even in test persons who were known to have extreme sensitivity to various medications and preservatives.

 

It must also be noted that a second series of tests was performed on a group of 32 patients with Dermacolor Camouflage Cream, with repeated application to the skin four weeks after primary exposure. Even after the secondary exposure, no skin reaction could be seen.
