How we test our products
We use a scientific method to match the best skin care products to your unique skin type
We only choose products for inclusion in the Skin Type Solutions system that are formulated, manufactured, and packaged in a manner that meets our set of high standards to ensure the highest efficacy possible.

We choose the best products from a variety of leading brands to match with your skin type based on these qualities. We test all products included in the software ourselves, and all must meet our rigid scientific requirements.
A strict set of guidelines dictate:

Ingredients that each skin type should use
Ingredients each skin type should avoid
Formulations for these individual and combined ingredients
Regimen adjustments based on lifestyle factors
Regimen adjustments based on personal preferences
Regimen adjustments based on underlying conditions such as pregnancy, breast feeding, gluten sensitivity and allergies
The order the products are applied to the skin
Adjustments of skincare regimens monthly based on skin response
Regimens adjustment for use with in-office procedures

Products and regimens must adhere to these guidelines to be Skin Type Solutions-approved. Only STS-approved medical providers and companies displaying the Skin Type Solutions logo are using our scientifically based system properly.

80% chance
you’re using the wrong skin care products.
