Where there is a blame there is a claim.

Why should we patch test?


As a beauty professional conducting a patch test protects your reputation and your business. There are lots of pressures to skip the patch test and get on with the treatment. If you skip a required patch test and a claim is made against you, even a weak claim, your insurer will not be able to defend you leaving you out of pocket. When conducting a patch test ensure you keep accurate and detailed records including the date of the test and the product used. This is becoming increasingly important as compensation claims against beauty salons continue to climb.
