INDEPENDENT LAB STUDIES & ANIMAL TESTING
FOR SKINCARE PRODUCTS
The question on every consumer’s mind: are independent lab studies or animal testing on skincare
and acne cure products really good quality assurance, especially products with therapeutic
claims for acne treatment?
Independent Lab Studies
Basically, anyone manufacturing or selling drugs or skincare products can have the test
results in their favour as long as they are willing to pay.
We do not believe in having our products tested in
other's laboratories and neither should you.

Are feedback by paid testers more reliable than
life testimonials from paying end-users?
The >95% of actual customer satisfaction rate
(majority of whom are users of our Acne
treatment and Acne Cure products) is a clear
indication that we don't need such lab tests.
For your information, when they do the toxication
test (e.g. what happens when the product comes into contact with the eyes), most, if not all, of
these tests are done on lab rats / rabbits and other animals - an act we strongly
Single Blind Testing / Double Blind
Single blind testing is a testing procedure
whereby the subject(s) which the product(s) is/are tested on are not told what brand / whose
products they are testing, but the tester (the persons(s) in charge of administering the tests)
Double blind means that the testers themselves do
not know what brand / whose product(s) is/are tested. The persons(s) in charge of administering
the tests also do not know.
The purpose of such "blind" tests is so that all
prejudice against a brand / type or kind of product(s) is supposed to be eliminated. However,
there is no way prejudice can be eliminated through such a test.
A lab conducting a single blind / double blind
test would first need to recruit fee-paying "volunteers" who are paid a sum of money to test the
acne treatment or acne cure products, or any others. The only thing they would not know is what
brand / whose products. Knowing that they are being paid to offer their comment afterwards, the
prejudice and the bias opinion cannot be eliminated.
By human nature, if someone was paid to do
something, he/she may try to balance out by highlighting some positive points even if he/she
hated the products.
There could also be "volunteers" who would just
bring the tester acne cure products home but never try them, fearing a negative effect that may
permanently damage their skin, needing further acne treatment and acne cures. But they would
still provide a positive feedback so that they will be offered the same job again in
Placebo drugs (drugs or medicine that serves no
purpose at all) have been given to patients without their knowledge yet, when asked, as high as
30% to 50% would say they felt better and that their conditions have improved
What more if they are paid to give
From the above points highlighted, which is more
reliable and believable? Claims based purely on short-term (a few weeks to a few months) test
results from paid "volunteers" OR positive feedback from real-life consumers since the last 3
Our Products have not and will not be tested on
animals. Our immediate raw material suppliers have also declared that they do not as well. We
believe there is NO need for that. Afterall, the animals aren't the ones using our acne cure and
acne treatment products, are they?
