At risk of chronic dermatitis and severe inflammation
The skin on the hands and lips is constantly exposed to external aggression, but its constitution is such that it's not fully equipped to withstand it.Hand skin has few sebaceous glands, and its hydrolipidic film is very fragile. As for the lips, which are semi-mucosa, they have no stratum corneum or sweat glands, no hydrolipidic film and they do not benefit from all the natural protection mechanisms of the other parts of the skin. They are therefore weakened more rapidly.
When the skin on the hands and lips is also constantly under strain, exposed to aggression and thus weakened, the consequences can be serious. The hands may develop dermatitis, or eczema. As for the lips, fissures can become chronic and as a result allergies, angular stomatitis or cheilitis develop.
40%* of all occupational diseases are occupational dermatoses. These diseases can even prevent professionals from continuing their work. In the most severe cases, the skin reaction is such that it leads to hospitalization or job loss.
