In the past, occupational skin cancer has been associated with the use of unrefined lubricating oils for various industrial processes.
The carcinogenic constituents of these oils have been identified, and several refining techniques have been developed to remove or modify these hazardous components.
It has been shown experimentally that highly refined oils do not produce skin cancer.
The present study examines the dermal carcinogenic potential of lubricating oils produced by several refining processes and the products formulated from these oils.
Consistent with previous data, it was found that highly refined oils are not carcinogenic, and that products formulated from these oils are similarly not carcinogenic provided that the additives are not carcinogenic.
Additionally, the data also suggested that industrial usage does not influence the carcinogenic potential of these products.
Thus, it is concluded that when noncarcinogenic additives are used in products formulated from high quality oils, the resulting products pose minimal skin cancer hazard when used under appropriate conditions for industrial applications.
