Will the Newest Wearable Device Leave You Itching for More?

Wearables include smart watches, smart clothing and eyewear which, in addition to the base material, may contain various additives such as plasticizers, UV stabilizers, pigments or antimicrobials. The choices made in materials of construction leads to concerns about chemical exposure. How safe are these devices for the consumer? Are chemical allergens present? Will these chemicals leach out when the device is being used as intended? Could these chemicals leach and cause an allergic reaction? In a joint study by EAG Laboratories and Gradient Corporation, we apply analytical chemistry and toxicology to evaluate the potential skin irritants or allergens of wearable materials. Learn how scientists design studies to evaluate wearable safety and avoid a rash of problems, including product recall, lawsuits, and regulatory agency inquiries.

In this webinar we will cover:

  • Product Safety
  • Chemicals of Skin Hazards
  • Extractable and leachable testing
  • Toxicological Review
