I found a couple of other threads by searching on here but anyway (and under BRC requirements), what are the restrictions on using a skin care cream to overcome dryness from frequent washing? (Low risk products (flavouring ingredients) - no food contact).
I read in another post they could be acceptable if kept in the changing room only; would that be valid still...?
Thanks.

Better to provide a standard company issued hand cream than let people bring their own (they will). Some simple controls such as unscented, no allergens and a procedure / conditions of use should do it.

To D-D:

Also ask for the CSDS, go through it before you make any final decision.

Yong

At our food processing plant we use a hand cream manufactured by DEB.

Just coming back to this, I still need to sort out a suitable hand cream but other than that is it usual to have people complaining about hand washing frequency and chapped hands etc? The cold weather at this time of year probably makes it worse too.
Also the wording of BRC6 does not help: 7.2.2 Hand cleaning shall be performed on entry to the production areas and at a frequency that is appropriate to minimise the risk of product contamination.
We have a lot of people going in and out due to the nature of our buildings and now it is policy that hand washing is required each time. Being more pragmatic, "Hand cleaning shall be performed before starting work with food products" might have been better wording.
