As a therapeutic makeup product, foundation is used to reduce the anxiety and unease associated with appearance in people with atopic skin problems. The aim of the present study was to prepare and evaluate the safety of natural color foundation for atopy.
Color foundations containing organic kaolin and zinc oxide were prepared. Safety of color foundation was evaluated by MTT cell viability assay (CCD-986sk human skin fibroblast cell line), and human repeat insult patch test for atopic dermatits.
Results of the MTT cell viability assay showed that the growth activity of human skin fibroblast cells was over 88% in all concentrations of the natural color foundations (sample C and D). Patch test revealed that the natural color foundations were safe. While two cases showed weak positive reactions (+) to sample A and B (general foundation on the market).
Natural color foundation with kaolin and zinc oxide was verified safe for atopic dermatitis and it appears to be beneficial for use as a foundation for atopy.
