What is a Skin Irritation Test?

The Skin Irritation Test is a method used to assess the potential for chemical substances or ingredients to cause skin irritation. This test is conducted in vitro, meaning it does not involve the use of animals. It adheres to the guidelines set by the UN Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling (GHS) under Category 2.

The test utilizes a reconstructed human epidermis (RHE) system, which closely mimics the biochemical and physiological properties of the upper layers of human skin. Non-transformed keratinocytes derived from humans are used to construct an epidermal model that replicates the histology and cytoarchitecture of human skin.

The evaluation of skin irritation potential is based on tissue viability. The epidermal model is exposed to a test chemical substance, and if the viability of the tissue is reduced to 50% or below compared to the mean viability of negative controls, the tested chemical substance is classified as an irritant according to the UN GHS Category 2.
