The non-occlusive DermaGuard barrier helps to prevent the penetration of the skin by irritants that can cause inflammation, discomfort, skin breakdown and allergic reactions.
DermaGuard for Eczema... Eczema, in many instances, is caused by or even made worse by external irritants. DermaGuard offers protection from most external irritants associated with eczema and contact dermatitis. While not a cure for the condition, the double microfilm barrier of DermaGuard allows the skin to "breathe" normally, and many people have found that once the irritating factors are minimised or removed, the skin heals on its own.
DermaGuard for contact dermatitis... DermaGuard offers superior protection against materials associated with contact dermatitis. While allowing the skin to "breathe" and function normally, DermaGuard prevents the irritation from occurring in the first place. These materials can include the allergens in latex, metals, soaps, fibres, chemicals and adhesives to name just a few.
DermaGuard for latex allergies...DermaGuard acts as an effective barrier against latex and its associated allergens. More and more people are becoming sensitive to latex as we become more cautious of the blood borne pathogens and the importance of protecting ourselves. DermaGuard helps prevent reactions to latex, and if they are already present, it helps prevent further irritation and allows the skin to heal on its own.
DermaGuard for metal allergies...DermaGuard can prevent rashes and skin discolouration for people allergic to nickel which is found in most jewellery, bra fasteners, metal buttons (on jeans, etc.), and metal watch bands.
DermaGuard for household chemicals...DermaGuard acts as an effective barrier against most household chemicals. These can range from ordinary washing-up liquids, cleaning agents and harsh abrasives to dry-cleaning and washing detergent residue left in clothing. In the garden, DermaGuard protects hands from a wide variety of fertilisers, pesticides and chemicals.
DermaGuard for water... DermaGuard is an effective barrier to water-induced reactions. These can range from the water itself to chemicals in tap water and the chlorine in swimming pools.
DermaGuard for allergies to fibres...DermaGuard actively protects the skin from many of today's man made materials such as latex, Nomex¨ and neoprene. It also helps protect against natural fibres like animal fur, wool and the chemicals often used to colour and treat these materials.
DermaGuard does not affect the adhesive properties of Band-Aids¨, bandages and medical tapes.
DermaGuard is the ultimate truly hypoallergenic moisturising topical barrier lotion which guards the skin from the widest array of possibly harmful materials. DermaGuard is an ideal product for health care workers and patients, industrial use, home use, for children and infants, in sports and sports medicine and creative endeavours. DermaGuard also helps those with skin conditions that are worsened by external irritants such as eczema, contact dermatitis (latex allergies), skin allergies, and the associated problems of maceration of the skin. DermaGuard does not damage or interfere with the skins own normal functions. DermaGuard is an ideal product for anyone to use regularly as a protector and enhancer of the skin.
