Derma Shield - The solution that skin's been waiting for

Skin Health & Safety in Catering

Health and safety in catering is important for every single person working in the industry.

Of all the health and safety issues facing catering staff, contact dermatitis and dry skin are perhaps two of the most prevalent health problems.

The United Kingdom Health and Safety Executive state that the number of new cases of work-related contact dermatitis for those working in the catering industry is twice that of the average level found in all industries.  It is also noted that the cost to the employer of resolving incidences of employee contact dermatitis can end up being twice as much as the cost of an accident resulting in physical injury *.

Those most at risk from developing dermatitis, or eczema, are catering employees who:

    
Healthy skin is supple and soft and provides a protective layer guarding against infection.  Chefs, cooks and catering assistants can all be exposed to substances that attack the skin and this may result in work-related contact dermatitis.  The main substances that give rise to concerns for health and safety in catering are soaps, disinfectants and cleansing products.  

Usually, the initial symptoms of work-related contact dermatitis is skin that feels dry and sore.  If left untreated, dermatitis may lead to split, cracked, painful skin that can result in employee absenteeism or even be career threatening.

Work-related dermatitis in the catering industry is most common on the hands and forearms.

Derma Shield is an ideal solution for the skin challenges that catering staff encounter everyday.  In fact, we are so confident that Derma Shield can treat and prevent further outbreaks of contact dermatitis in the catering industry that we offer a 100% guarantee of satisfaction or your money back!

Don't take our word for it. Read for yourself what one fellow professional said:

“My son, Bradley, who works in a restaurant suddenly developed dermatitis. 

After visiting our doctor on maybe 5 occasions, nothing was suitable for his worsening condition of dermatitis.  Needless to say, he had to be off sick for 2 weeks. 

Then hey presto, he started using Derma Shield.  After only a short time, 10 days, he cannot believe the difference.  He finds it very soothing, relieves the itchiness and totally moisturises his hands preventing them from cracking.  Last, but not least, it has reduced the pain that he had been experiencing.  Thank you.”

How can Derma Shield help those concerned with health and safety in the catering industry?

Derma Shield is cleared for use in the food processing industry.

It forms a microscopic mesh over the skin which protects whilst allowing the skin to breath and perspire normally.

Because Derma Shield is designed only to come off the skin as it sheds naturally, one application will last for four to five hours despite repeated washing.

Derma Shield locks pharmaceutical grade moisturisers, such as Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, into the skin.

Strong odours of foods such as onions, garlic and fish wash right off with soap and water instead of penetrating the skin and lingering for hours.

Derma Shield also helps protect against commercial cleaning compounds, industrial oven cleaners and drain cleaners.

Users often report how Derma Shield makes gloves more comfortable to wear by reducing excess sweating. It also protects the skin from any irritations that can sometimes occur after prolonged glove usage.

"A quick squirt and a thorough rub in made all the difference. We still finished work with skin covered in resin but it all washed off with mild soap and water." LL (Tree Fellers)
"We have used Derma Shield for protection have seen a difference in the effect of chemicals on the skin. I have noticed a marked improvement in the condition of my own hands, no more sore finger joints where contact with solvents used to cause drying and cracking. Material that used to result in an unpleasant stickiness on the fingers can be washed off easily." RC (Chemical Co)

"(SM) changed to Derma Shield for the second half of the trial with immediate improvement. Derma Shield made his hands and nails much easier to clean and again assisted in the healing of previous damage. Discussion indicated an overwhelming preference for Derma Shield which showed itself to be convenient and effective in all respects." PC (Marconi)
