Skin irritability to sodium lauryl sulphate--as measured by skin water vapour loss-by sex and race.

Abstract

The skin irritability of 38 volunteers (23 males, 15 females), of different ethnic groups, to sodium lauryl sulphate, 2% aqueous, was studied by measurement of skin water vapour loss (SVL). The mean SVL values of unirritated skin of females (2.9 g water/m/h) was significantly lower than males (5.5 g water/m2/h) (P-<0.001); the mean values between the… (More)
