Dermatest - about us.​

Dermatest® protects your skin. Not only recently, but since 1978. As an independent dermatological institute, Dermatest® gives you the maximum possible confidence when using products for your skin.

Dermatest - what we do.

Every day, our skin comes into contact with all kinds of substances and liquids, which can irritate or attack it. Here at Dermatest®, we test such products carefully for tolerability and efficacy, making them safe for you to use. Our expansive team of dermatologists, allergists, biologists and food scientists ensures technical competency across the various disciplines. Therefore, we can guarantee that our analysis is scientifically substantiated and performed with a high degree of accuracy. The results based on this are always reliable.

What does the Dermatest seal of approval stand for?

The Dermatest seal of approval is a mark of distinction for independently tested products which come into contact with the skin. Products marked with the Dermatest seal of approval after being tested by our institute are skin-friendly and safe. Those who value independent product testing pay attention to the Dermatest seal of approval. Affixed directly to the product, it is easy to spot when shopping - reliable and consumer-friendly.

The independent dermatology research institute

The original Dermatest seal of approval is the mark of quality for independently tested products which come into contact with the skin. The Dermatest seal of approval is only awarded to products which are skin-friendly and safe. Affixed directly to the product, the original Dermatest seal of approval is easy to recognise – reliable and consumer-friendly. Here at Dermatest, we investigate and test cosmetic products, food supplements and consumer goods, making them safer to use and make their efficacy measurable and comparable.
