NordShield® Brilliant ready products, marketed as NordShield® Brilliant Hands,

NordShield® Brilliant Surfaces, and NordShield® Brilliant Fresh (latter used against bad odor in shoes, feet and performance gear) have been “dermatologically tested”. The tests have been done for sensitisation according to a repetitive epicutaneous test (occlusive patch test) for primary skin irritation and detection of sensitisation of humans based on three applications within seven weeks of NordShield® Brilliant and been given a rating of „excellent“. This testing on humans was performed by Dermatest® GmbH (ISO 9001:2015) on 30 panellists of either sex, all without visible skin diseases or known hypersensitivity.

Under the conditions of this study NordShield® Brilliant ready products fulfil the following statements:

  • No evidence of any skin disorder was detected in the test area of any of the 30 panellists after conducting patch testing for 24 h, 48 h and 72 hours according to the internationally recognised guidelines of ICDRG (International Contact Dermatitis Research Group).

  • During the first two patch tests in week 1 and 3, the test persons were intensively contacted with the test substance. With the third epicutaneous test in week 7, a possible very high sensitization potential of the preparation was largely excluded.”

  • None of the 30 test persons presented any allergic or allergic-hyperergic reactions in the third and therefore conclusive patch test.

  • It can be concluded that the use of the product will not cause any unwanted skin reactions due to an irritating effect.

  • Contract trademark (Dermatest® 3-star quality seal) can be used by Nordic BioTech Group Ltd in reference to NordShield® Brilliant products
