About us

The Skin Health Alliance awards professional dermatological accreditation to products, services and brands around the world.

We help consumers feel confident in their choices by reassuring them products have been independently verified as skin safe.

We’re also proud to support a range of skin charities and good causes through our work

What we do

Our dermatological accreditation starts with a scientific review performed by our team of independent dermatologists. This is a professional analysis of a product’s research including a thorough assessment of the ingredients, clinical trials data and proof of efficacy. Once accreditation is awarded we then implement an annual licensing agreement.

We can secure the services of a dermatologist to help brands with additional initiatives that go beyond their product’s accreditation – from media days and editorials to professional presentations and more. A Skin Health Alliance spokesperson can add a professional edge to a brand’s message, and help it gain greater credibility with the public and media.

As an authority in dermatological research we present at international skin conferences and have papers published in the world’s leading medical and scientific journals. As our work is impartial and professionally presented it is often brought to public attention through the media. In turn our accredited brands are often able to use our research paper findings as a platform for highlighting their own product’s science and benefits.

Our accreditation goes further than product and service endorsement. Dermatologists are at the forefront of skin health and they provide services for patients seeking medical or aesthetic interventions. We award our accreditation to those dermatologist led clinics able to prove they deliver a quality service and their ethos is one promoting good skin health and wellbeing.
