The British Association of Skin Camouflage (BASC) is the charity which promotes applying specialised products to reproduce skin colour. Camouflage should not be used over undiagnosed skin conditions. It is not a medicine; the structure and skin condition will remain the same – but the camouflage result may help people to regain their self-esteem and confidence. People should stop using camouflage if there is a change to their skin condition, including moles, and seek further medical diagnosis.
The BASC campaign for a better understanding of the psychological and social-economic problems associated with an image that may be considered different to others.
