Dermatologist Tested/Approved


Happy Wednesday my friends! I am struggling today you guys; I don’t know what is wrong with me. I have a severe case of the mid-week blues. The only thing that is going to cheer me up right now is talking about cosmetics because I have a problem. You do too, don’t lie.

Ok, so today we are talking about the difference between dermatologist tested, and dermatologist approved. Most people don’t know there is a difference, so Touch of Tay is coming to the rescue.


Dermatologist Approved:


Simply means the ONE dermatologist has used and approved a skin care product, the keyword, and very concerning word, is “one.” This dermatologies can be anyone of any skill level or experience.

It is very common that dermatologies are paid large sums of money by companies that want their products approved. While most dermatologies probably aren’t accepting money and approving skin care products that shouldn’t be approved, a lot of them probably are – in my speculation.

Doctor’s getting kickbacks from pharmaceuticals isn’t anything new.


Dermatologist Tested:


Means that a dermatologist tested the product and that’s it. You don’t know if the product had negative or positive effects just simply that a dermatologies somewhere tried the product at some point.



You might be asking what the purpose of putting either label on a product if they mean little to nothing and the answer is, to sell more product.

Don’t forget that the beauty industry is one of the biggest industries in the world, especially in the United States and they didn’t get that large by telling the truth. This doesn’t mean that you should boycott makeup and skin care products, it just means that you need to be aware.

I hope you found this post helpful and you learned a little something. I encourage you to do your research and form your opinion these are just my thoughts.
