SOA Criteria

Products eligible for the NEA Seal of Acceptance are those that have been created or intended for use by persons with eczema or severe sensitive skin conditions and that have satisfied the NEA Seal of Acceptance criteria.

NEA Seal of Acceptance criteria includes a list of ingredients and contents that should be avoided because they contain known irritants. Depending on the product, the NEA Seal of Acceptance Review Panel considers testing data on sensitivity, safety, and toxicity, as well as the ingredients, content, and formulation data. nea-seal-blue_0

Acceptance of a specific product does not represent an endorsement of that product. Acceptance of a product means that the product has been evaluated to determine that it does not contain ingredients or contents that are known to be unsuitable for use by persons with eczema or sensitive skin conditions. NEA makes no representation or warranty regarding any of the accepted products; including without limitation any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose.

An annual non-refundable application fee is required for products submitted for acceptance. The application fee helps to cover operational expenses for the NEA Seal of Acceptance program. Application fees for products that are not awarded the NEA Seal of Acceptance™ are not refunded.

Special Note: Nut oils and some natural ingredients can raise allergy issues for some individuals, and be of concern for pediatric patients. Each NEA Seal of Acceptance Review will alert consumers to the presence of nut oils and similar natural ingredients. Please contact your medical professional for guidance.
