Little information was available on skin irritation in humans and
laboratory animals after acute exposure to n-hexane vapor. No clinical
signs (rubbing, scratching, redness) of skin irritation were reported in
acute inhalation studies.
No skin sensitisation has been reported in exposed workers and no skin
sensitisation was noted in a maximization test with n-hexane solution.
However, operators at a soybean hexane extraction facility had a higher
incidence of dry or irritated skin than maintanance workers (65% to
20%). It could not be deducted from WHO (1991) report wether the
operators were exposed to n-hexane or solutions of n-hexane.
