Abstract Various kinds of barrier creams are described, such those used against lubricants, nickel, disinfectants and cleaning agents. Methods for testing barrier creams and the results are given. It is concluded that presently available barrier creams do not provide full protection in all cases. This is mainly true for skin creams applied to prevent contact with allergens such as nickel or chromates.
