What does X-Pand mean?
XPand is the exclusive manufacturing process patented by MartiniSpA, which allows us to enrich our sponges with natural active ingredients with cosmetic properties.
The sponges produced with the XPand process have unique characteristics compared to other sponges, in particular an unmatched softness and the ability to expand in water thanks to their exceptional absorbency.
The XPand process takes place with reactions to water, avoiding chemical agents and solvents that are harmful to the environment.
What does "Dermatologically tested" mean?
The wording “dermatalogically tested” can be used when the cosmetic product has been subjected to a non-irritating outcome to the Patch test on 20 volunteers, which provides contact with the skin in an occlusive manner for 48 hours and a consequent verification of the skin reactivity at a distance of 15 ‘and 24h. The Patch Test is an assessment of compatibility with human skin in accordance with the Colipa Guidelines (“Guidelines for the Assessment of Skin Tolerance of Potentially Irritant Cosmetic Ingredients” Etition of 1997).
For our tests we are supported by the ABICH laboratory (UNI EN ISO 9001: 2008 certificate), where the study is conducted under the clinical direction of Dr. Samuele Burastero, specialist in Allergology and Clinical Immunology, researcher at the San Raffaele Institute of Milan .
Although this test is mandatory only for cosmetic products, Martini SpA has decided to carry it out for every bodycare product, guaranteeing greater quality and safety.
