Barrier cream vs Derma Shield


Barrier creams for the hands, and for general skin care and protection, are now outdated when compared to Derma Shield.

Dispensed in a revolutionary new format as an easy to apply mousse, Derma Shield is non-greasy and bonds automatically to the skin forming a protective shield that still allows the skin to breathe and perspire normally.

Derma Shield will remain on the skin despite repeated washing which not only means that reapplication is only needed every 4-5 hours it also ensures that essential key workers are not unnecessarily distracted from their duties.

Derma Shield is much more than a pre-work or after-work cream and should not be thought of as just a barrier cream.

Although not a substitute for PPE Derma shield can be used alongside existing measures in place to help prevent allergies and adverse effects that may be experienced with glove use.

Derma Shield will benefit anyone working with grease, oil, coolants, de-greasers, acids, bases, adhesives, sealants, and many other substances that will have an adverse effect on the skin.

Derma Shield will also benefit those who in the long term wish to save money.

Derma Shield offers amazing benefits over traditional barrier cream systems…
