Assessing the impact of the regular use (4 weeks) of an alcohol-based hand sanitizer on TEWL and epidermal hydration

Assessing the impact of the regular use (4 weeks) of an alcohol-based hand sanitizer on TEWL and epidermal hydration

The Stratum corneum is a principal protector against physical, chemical, biological aggression and water loss in human skin. The repeated use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers might result in dryness and aggression. This study aims to evaluate the impact of a four week-long regular use of an alcohol-...
