rath’s sweat protect ACH skin protection gel is applied 1 to 2 times per day (dosage: 0.5-1 ml) onto clean and dry hands and rubbed in. Protective gloves/clothing can be put on once the gel has fully dried. Full effectiveness is not achieved on initial application. Full protection is achieved after 3-4 days. Regular use maintains the achieved level of protection.


Sweating under air-tight protective gloves can lead to the accumulation of moisture. The skin softens, swells and loses its mechanical resistance and its natural protective effect. This makes it easier for contaminants to penetrate and the skin dries out more quickly.
The build-up of moisture is caused by the release of moisture in two ways:
•    the noticeable release of sweat through the sweat glands via perspiration
•    the imperceptible release of moisture via the skin
The active ingredients in rath's sweat protect ACH prevent both these types of moisture release.


rath’s sweat protect ACH, as a skin product, is subject to the legal specifications in the EC Cosmetics Ordinance (Ordinance (EG) No. 1223/2009).
