24 mg DEHP cm−2 h−1. This scenario is by no means unrealistic since three out of four disposable examination gloves investigated in a Danish study contained phthalates with contents between 23 and 42% (w/w). Other phthalates may have different dermal absorption rates; DIDP is absorbed through the skin about ten times less than DEHP. ©CAB International 2011. Chemical Food Safety (L.
