⚠️ Human Skin Can Absorb Toxic PFAS ‘Forever Chemicals,’ New Study Shows

"... many of these compounds can indeed be absorbed through the human skin, contrary to what has been previously believed about the skin acting as a barrier. Manufacturers and regulators need to be sure of the risks involved before bringing PFAS-containing products to market." — Oddný Ragnarsdóttir, Mohammed Abdallah + Stuart Harrad



Contrary to previous beliefs, human skin does not act as a barrier to “forever chemicals,” according to a study that found human skin can absorb some of the chemicals. Once in the body, PFAS can disrupt hormone systems.
