Skin protection is based on 3 components:

  • Skin protection, i.e. all measures carried out prior to skin-stressing activities (e.g. gloves, special protective ointments).
  • Skin cleansing, i.e. all measures that soothe the skin and remove soils from the skin after skin-stressing activities.
  • Skin care, i.e. all measures that are applied to the skin after skin-stressing activities to support the skin's natural regeneration.
