Details on study design:
Primary skin irritation on rabbits is recorded in a 10-grade ordinal series and is based upon the severest reaction that develops on the clipped skin of each of five albino rabbits within 24 hours of the uncovered application of 0.01ml of undiluted sample or of solutions in water, propylene glycol, or acetone. Grade 1 indicates no irritation and Grade 2 the least visible capillary injection from the undiluted chemical. Grade 6 indicates necrosis when undiluted and Grade 10 indicates necrosis from a 0.01% solution.
