||Skin-protection products are used in the occupational hygiene field to protect the skin against hazards at the workplace. Their use is appropriate only for non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and non-sensitizing low-grade irritants such as water, detergents and cutting fluids. They should not be considered as replacements for other protective measures such as gloves. The selection of the appropriate protective product depends on the physical and chemical properties of the agent against which protection is sought. A table lists suited applications for selected protective cream formulations.
