POISONOUS HAND SANITIZERS

HARAAM, NAJIS, POISONOUS HAND SANITIZERS

Dr Ishaan Ramkisson, specialist dermatologist, weighed in on the possible side effects of sanitisers on the skin.

“Frequent washing of hands with alcohol-based hand sanitisers can strip away the skin’s natural, protective oils on the top layer of the skin, leading to a compromise of the skin barrier. This can lead to repeated irritation eventually causing an irritant contact dermatitis,” he said.
