Foot Care Testing
Hydration, Callous Reduction, Cracked Heals, Athlete’s Foot and Anti-Fungal Claims
Footcare products are notoriously difficult to test accurately because of the nature of the treatment site. It’s not easy to get consistent images, and the added difficulty and general lack of photogenic qualities of the feet make it that much more of a challenge.
Our team has a proven track record when it comes to substantiating footcare specific claims, and a portfolio of images to back it up.
Whether your product relies on traditional hydration, exfoliation, or film/barrier forming qualities, we can help you to document and substantiate the effects of its use over time.
OTC, Anti-Fungal, and Pain Relief Claims
Bridging into the OTC active ingredient realm, secondary study designs can be employed in order to help validate more drug-oriented claims.
For anti-fungal products we can measure the self-perceived efficacy of a product.
VCS has a team of experts at our disposal, and we can also utilize the assistance of a qualified and licensed Dermatologist or Podiatrist as either a study reviewer or Principal Investigator.
