Acid Mantle and sebamed brands

To justify the claim medicinal skin care, sebamed products are developed in co-operation with dermatologists and pharmacists. Excellent cosmetic characteristics like smell, color, and skin feeling are the basis to which the important additional properties relevant for supporting the skin’s own protective functions and health are added. 

Active ingredients of high quality and purity are carefully chosen for proven efficacy and safety, and are used in relevant concentrations, rather than adding gimmicks without real beneficial effects or substances at too low concentrations to affect the skin positively. 

All products have to pass dermatological and clinical safety and efficacy testing before being introduced into the market. Claimed effects on sensitive and problem skin are verified in tests on panels of affected test persons rather than only on healthy volunteers. Thus, risks for irritation or allergy are minimized and efficacy is maximized.
