    Our 5-Point Clinical Testing Standard

    Most skincare products do not require formal clinical testing. And those that do, are often not required to be tested inclusively on all skin tones. We hold ourselves to a higher standard:

    • We use third-party facilities
    • We conduct non-subjective assessments
    • We test on diverse skin tones
    • We publish statistically significant results
    • We have zero conflicts of interest

    Do your products work for all skin tones and ethnicities?

    All Lion Pose products are formulated and clinically proven to work on all skin tones, types, and ethnicities.

    Are Lion Pose products suitable for sensitive skin?

    Lion Pose products are formulated with sensitive skin in mind. We avoid synthetic fragrances and dyes, and instead use scientifically-proven botanicals and safe synthetics at optimal concentrations. However, since everyone's skin is unique, we recommend reading the ingredient list and conducting a patch test before use. Simply apply a small amount behind the ear or on your forearm, wait 24-48 hours, and check for any signs of irritation.

    Since eczema is a medical condition, we recommend consulting your doctor or dermatologist before using Lion Pose products.
