Seal of Recognition
The National Psoriasis Foundation’s Seal of Recognition highlights over-the-counter products that are proven to safely and effectively manage the symptoms of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Products recognized by NPF are those that have been created or are intended for use by people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis or individuals living with severe sensitive skin or joint mobility limitations. These products are designed to relieve the symptoms of their psoriatic disease and help make their life easier.
Product categories include:
- Personal care
- Household items
How products earn the Seal of Recognition
Review begins with the manufacturer, who submits their product to NPF for evaluation. Each category has a standard set of criteria. The manufacturer must provide evidence that shows their product sufficiently and safely aids in the management of symptoms for individuals living with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis or living with severe sensitive skin or joint mobility limitations. The product is then independently reviewed by a panel of dermatology and rheumatology medical experts and people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Products that pass this review receive the Seal of Recognition.
The National Psoriasis Foundation Seal of Recognition does not guarantee that individuals will not experience adverse reactions after using a labeled product. All individuals with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis should consult with a provider to confirm that using any over-the-counter product will not interfere with other prescribed medications or therapy. Under no circumstances should the National Psoriasis Foundation Seal of Recognition be considered a replacement for advice from their health care professional.
