Stands for Human Repeat Insult Patch Test, and is the industry standard for cosmetic safety testing to help predict the likelihood of irritation and induced allergic contact dermatitis from topically applied products.

Transparency Tip

The US actually does not require companies to perform safety testing like HRIPT before selling a cosmetic or skincare product, so it’s always good to check your tolerance of a new product with a patch test if you have any concerns.

Dr. Whitney Bowe Beauty tests every topical formula to make sure it passes HRIPT before launching it.
