dermatest confirms optimal skin compatibility of nano-ex

Very good skin compatibility dermatologically confirmed

The independent dermatological institute dermatest has awarded the skin compatibility of nano-ex with “very good”. This seal is awarded for epicutaneous tests in which skin contact with the test product did not cause a product-related reaction in at least 30 test subjects. The epicutaneous test (patch test) is the detection of a primary irritant effect or a contact allergy (by provoking allergic skin reactions in already sensitised test subjects) through epicutaneous, localised and time-limited contact with the preparation under investigation.

nano-ex: a novel standard first-aid kit for occupational health in nanotechnology

May 2021

nano-ex is now available within EU

If skin contact with nanoparticles occurs despite preventive measures when working with nanoparticles, nano-ex offers the first effective option for effective skin cleaning. nano-ex is soap-free and therefore TRGS-401-compliant, as the skin barrier is not impaired. nano-ex is suitable for all types of nanoparticles and removes more than 99% of all particles. nano-ex can be ordered immediately within the EU.
