Today, ANSES is publishing its risk assessment report on chemicals in heavy incontinence pads. In its expert appraisal, the Agency identified cases where the health thresholds for several chemical substances were exceeded for people with skin lesions who have to wear these protective products on a long-term basis. ANSES recommends that manufacturers eliminate or minimise the presence of these chemicals in incontinence pads.
