PR88 Wash-off Hand Protection & Other Barrier Creams

Pr88 and pr-products can also be an excellent source of hand protection. While creams are not to be confused as a substitute for gloves, they can help protect the worker if chemicals penetrate gloves. As with gloves and soaps, special care must be taken when selecting protective creams.
The worker needs to understand how to use the proper cream for the job. If an employee is working with petroleum-based hazards, they should use creams that are water-based to naturally repel the petroleum solvent (Pr88 is recommended). For protection against water-based hazards, oil-based creams should be used. (pr99 is recommended)
To assure that the proper cream is used, the employer and employee must understand how protection creams work. If a barrier cream is said to repel acid, then the worker must be aware of the concentration of the acid that the cream will repel.
Protective creams need to be used at the appropriate time for full effectiveness. For example, if an employee works on a machine that uses cutting oil, the cream must be applied to the employee's skin before work begins. The cream may not offer any protection to the employee if it is applied after the cutting oil has already penetrated the skin. For protective creams to work, the skin must be clean when the cream is first applied.
When considering what type of hand protection cream to use, a good method to use is a three-point skin-care program:
1. Protect while working
2. Use proper cleaner, and
3. Apply skin cream after work

Remember, we only have one set of hands. Let's handle them with care on the job.

PR2000 is applied after washing (or e.g. shaving) by massaging it into the skin. It is absorbed quickly, spreads easily and leaves a pleasant "feel" to the skin. PR2000 should be used regularly after a shower or wash or shave, as it helps to maintain and regenerate skin which is stressed on the job or by the environment, and it improves the skin's natural physiological protective function. PR2000 is skin type neutral, which makes it suitable for all skin types.
