An alternative study of the skin irritant effect of an homologous series of surfactants.

Abstract

An attempt has been made to differentiate between in vivo and in vitro skin reactions to a homologous series of surfactants (sodium alkyl sulfate, R-OSO(3) Na) and to determine the usefulness of percutaneous absorption in vitro as an alternative test system. Sodium alkyl sulfate showed considerable biological activity by virtue of its polar head groups. The… (More)
