SEAL OF ACCEPTANCE DISCLAIMER STATEMENT

For additional information about a specific product please contact the manufacturer. Content provided by ESC is for reference purposes only and is not intended to substitute for advice given by a physician, pharmacist, or other licensed health-care professional. You should not use this information as self-diagnosis or for treating a health problem or disease. For advice about product selection, ESC recommends individuals seek advice from their health care provider. ESC also recommends that you contact your health-care provider immediately if you suspect that you have a medical problem.

Products that have earned the Eczema Society of Canada’s seal of acceptance may contain potential irritants at concentration levels thought to be insignificant for most individuals. Some people with eczema may still find they do not tolerate certain products or certain ingredients. Rarely, some individuals will have an allergy to specific ingredients that are well tolerated by others.

ESC recommends that individuals patch test any new personal care product on a small area of skin, before applying it to a large area of skin; cleansers, however, should never be left on the skin. Should irritation occur, ESC suggests that individuals not use the product and consult their health care professional.

For over-the-counter (OTC) products, ESC reminds consumers that all drugs, including OTC drugs, have risks and potential side effects. Consumers are reminded to read and follow the manufacturer’s and pharmacist’s instructions and consult with their health care provider before using any medication and if their skin is worsening during or after use.

ESC assumes no liability for inaccuracies or misstatements about any products or consequences from use of products.

ESC makes no representation or warranty regarding any products bearing its ESC SOA; including any implied warranties of merchantability of fitness for any particular purpose.
