Uses for DermaGuard
DermaGuard barrier lotion and moisturiser allows the skin to "breathe" normally while it helps to prevent the penetration of the skin by irritants that can cause inflammation, discomfort, skin breakdown and allergic reactions.

Dyes used in batiks, ink from stamping and all types of paints are easily absorbed into the skin and can be harmful. When DermaGuard is applied to the skin, these materials do not penetrate the outer layer and therefore do not enter the blood stream where they can cause many health problems. It should be noted, that DermaGuard must be applied twice to the areas of highest contact, especially around the finger nails.
Glues and adhesives of all types are very caustic and damaging to the skin. With DermaGuard these materials are not allowed to penetrate the skin and are, therefore, more easily removed.
Lead used in the making of stained glass as well as lead found in some pencils and artists colours are one of the most harmful items an artist can encounter. DermaGuard acts as a barrier to toxic metals and prevents absorption into the skin. While DermaGuard is an effective barrier to these agents, the user should take adequate precautions and follow the recommendations of the manufacturer.
