We carried out a four-week study of female patients with acne vulgaris in order to assess the safety of make-up cosmetics for sensitive skin, consisting of powder foundation, liquid foundation, and loose powder in the "d Program®" series developed by Shiseido Co., Ltd. Eighty-five subjects completed the study. We found adverse skin reactions in 2.1% of the subjects who used the powder foundation. On the basis of these findings, it was concluded that these make-up cosmetics for sensitive skin can be used safely by the great majority of female patients with acne vulgaris.
