proDERM has examined the skin tolerability of the hand protective products in different and independent studies. The irritating potential of the products were primarily examined in a 3 x 24 h patch test on 32 subjects and dermatologically assessed. In a following use-test, 20 subjects used the test products during their everyday professional life, 8 hours daily for 2 weeks. Finally, the corresponding skin areas were assessed by a physician.
In both studies, the products showed high skin tolerance, which is from now on confirmed by the proDERM quality seal.
