Perfluoropolyethers to prevent ICD: Schliemann-Willers et al. report on the efficacy of a new class of perfluoropolyethers in the prevention of irritant contact dermatitis (ICD).

Detergents, solvents, acids, alkaline solutions, cutting oils or even plain water may lead to damage of the epidermal barrier function and cause ICD.
