Various routes of entry into the skin exist, both through the SC as well as eccrine and transfollicular shunt routes. While these shunt routes may comprise only 0.1% of the skin surface, some chemicals that cannot penetrate the SC have penetrated via these routes. As a consequence, transfollicular research is being revived.
