Patch Testing

The new Hair & Beauty product from Commercial Express is set apart from other providers, as we offer greater flexibility for Hairdressers and Barbers in the application of our Patch Testing Condition. Where most insurers state that the client must strictly adhere to “manufacturer recommendations”, we will cover the client in other scenarios:

  1. If they follow the recommendations of colourhouses or vendors relating to the hair product; or,
  2. If they are an approved Colourstart® account holder, we will cover the use of “OK to be Colour” passports.
