Help and advice about skin camouflage
There are two organisations which offer information and advice:
The British Association of Skin Camouflage (BASC)
This organisation is an independent, non-profit making Association that provides skin camouflage training for a range of professionals who use it. BASC’s trained professionals provide a skin matching service within the NHS and private practice. You can refer yourself to a BASC practitioner, but you may have to pay a fee. In addition to prescribable skin camouflage products, the BASC uses a wider range of products and processes to achieve effective skin camouflage.
This organisation offers a skin camouflage consultation service, run by trained volunteers (until recently it was run by the Red Cross). The volunteers select the best colour match for each person’s natural skin tone and then teach people how to apply the products. The service is free, but donations are requested. It is available to people with vitiligo by referral through their GP or dermatologist and self referral is available in certain areas - check the website for up to date information. Only prescribable skin camouflage products are used.
