A patch test is a easy way of checking whether your skin will react to new products such as cosmetics, soaps, moisturisers etc. Patch testing is a common way to check for a variety of allergies. At NaturZest we use all natural ingredients but some people may have intolerance for some of the natural ingredients too. So, it is advisable to do a patch test on small part of skin before actually using the product.

Patch testing is applying a small amount of the product to the skin and leaving it on for some time to see if a reaction develops. Generally patch test is done on inside area of the arm or bend of the elbow. Reaction can be in the form of itching or redness or some kind of discomfort. In general case such issues do not arise.
