Patch Testing Guide

We at The Derma Co. take skin & hair care seriously. To us, solving your problems remain the primary goal. We want to ensure each one of you that our products are dermatologist-approved, safe, and highly effective.

However, a patch test is what we recommend before you start using any of our products.

Patch tests are an easy way to predict if you will have an initial adverse reaction to a new product. It’s recommended to perform a patch test before incorporating a new product into your routine.

Steps for Patch Testing

  • Clean a patch of skin on the upper forearm and apply a small amount of the product
  • Wait for 15-20 minutes or a maximum of 30 minutes
  • If any itching, redness, burning, blistering or irritation is observed, wash the area, and do not use the product

Please Note: A patch test is only for determining early irritation reactions to product(s) and does not promise similar results when applied to other area(s) of the body, including the face or after regular use. A patch test does not account for any underlying conditions and should not be used for the diagnosis of hypersensitivity or allergic contact dermatitis.


  • Yes, Having a blend of Alpha-Hydroxy Acid & Beta-Hydroxy Acid in combination with Niacinamide, it helps in reducing acne breakouts.
  • It is only useful for oily, combination, and acne-prone skin.
  • Yes, as it contains Glycolic acid, which helps in exfoliation.
  • It removes impurities, cleanses the pores, fights acne-causing bacteria, and treats calluses.
  • It is beneficial in clearing acne and oiliness.
  • The dosage depends if you’re using AHA-BHA Gel as an individual product or a part of the regimen. If you’re using AHA-BHA Gel as an individual product, you can use it twice daily. However, if you’re following The Derma Co. Regimen - then follow the dermatologist’s instructions and use accordingly.
  • AHA-BHA Gel is the first line for active acne, Retinol Serum is for pigmentation and blemishes and Niacinamide Serum is for acne marks & post-acne blemishes.
  • Anyone with oily and combination skin can use this product. People with hypersensitive skin should first do a patch test on other body parts (behind the ear) & if it’s tolerable then they can use on their face. If not tolerable, please discontinue usage.
  • It can be used with any other daily cosmetics. As a word of advice, keep a gap of 10-15 minutes before using any other product after the AHA-BHA Gel application.
  • It is for active acne treatment & arrests new acne formation. It has a faster onset of action on acne as compared to both so that the number of acne is reduced for the further treatment course.

Our Derma’s Opinion

Dr Opinion
Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and Glycolic Acid exfoliate the skin's topmost surface for a brighter and more even appearance. It helps remedy anti-aging, pigmentation, acne scarring and other surface-level skin concerns. Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA), Salicylic Acid, and Niacinamide also exfoliate the skin as an extended function to help clear pore congestion. BHA has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and is excellent for treating acne-prone skin and blemishes. If dryness or peeling occurs, reduce the frequency of application to once per day or alternate day. Do not step out in the sun without sunscreen.
