What’s the difference between dermatologically tested and ophthalmologist tested?
Dermatology focuses on the skin, whereas ophthalmology focuses on the eyes. If a product is dermatologically tested it means it has been reviewed and approved by a skin specialist.
Does the process of ophthalmology testing involve animals?
When it comes to animal testing, it all depends on the brand. Ophthalmologist tested alone does not mean the product has been tested on animals.
What happens if I don’t use ophthalmologist tested beauty products?
Nothing in particular. If you're using eye creams, eyeliners or mascaras – anything that goes around the eye – nine times out of ten, they'll be ophthalmologist tested. But if they're not, it's nothing to worry about so long as you don't get any in your eyes. If you do, rinse thoroughly to avoid any stinging.
