Q. How did Bioelements test Barrier Fix Daily Hydrator?
A. We test in the following ways:
Consumer perception studies -Bioelements commissioned consumer perception testing on Barrier Fix Daily Hydrator in order to validate and quantify benefits (example: "92% say it moisturizes while calming irritation”). This strict perception study was run by 3rd party experts in beauty product testing, wherein a 28-day study was conducted with 96 women, age 18-60 with identified skin sensitivities. Chosen participants are given the product(s), follow a strict at-home agenda, and then complete surveys.
Independent ingredient testing -We cite independent clinical evaluations, and clinical in-vitro (within a controlled environment/lab), and in-vivo (human) testing to validate the claims of ingredients. These tests are not conducted or commissioned by Bioelements – they are provided to us by the ingredient source.
RIPT, dermatologist tests for safety + efficacy -We follow strict formula quality control via stability and clinical testing to ensure effectiveness and optimum performance. Tests include human repeat patch tests (RIPT), microbial change, pH testing, viscosity, plus visual, odor and tactile integrity. We also conduct dermatologist testing.
We never test on animals
