Products Available To Camouflage Hands (PATCH) patient survey on the efficacy of camouflage for the hands
The Products Available To Camouflage Hands (PATCH) survey of products for camouflaging backs of hands was a joint venture undertaken by The Vitiligo Society (UK) and the British Association of Skin Camouflage. The patient survey was a response to the problem experienced by many people with vitiligo (and other skin conditions) that traditional camouflage can be used, but washes or rubs off too easily on the hands and fingers. For the patient survey, volunteers with vitiligo tested nine different faux tans and theatrical and long-lasting cosmetic products, and one traditional skin camouflage product. Overall and on most criteria, the other products were rated more highly than traditional skin camouflage (for use on the hands). The products are all readily available in the UK, but not on prescription. Manufacturers have been asked to consider making them available in a wider range of natural skin colours.
