1. WHAT IS MARLY SKIN GUARD?
Marly Skin Guard is a hybrid skin protection foam that absorbs into and binds the fatty acid to the creatines of the epidermis, creating a network of protection within the skin. Unlike other skin protectants that sit on the surface of the skin, Marly Skin Guard does not wash off. Instead, it slowly evaporates as your skin sweats. For continued protection, simply re-apply every 4 hours.
2. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING MARLY SKIN GUARD?
The epidermis, when functioning properly, acts as a membrane that prevents irritants from entering into the skin but still allowing it to breath and sweat. Irritants, harsh soaps, frequent washing, antibacterial agents, etc., destroy the natural skin barrier balance. As a result, the skin becomes much more susceptible to penetrating irritants. And when used frequently, gloves actually make this problem even worse. Marly Skin Guard helps the outer layer of skin to perform its intended function by restoring the skins natural balance. Marly Skin Guard also assists damaged skin by reducing moisture loss and promoting the healing process.
3. HOW LONG HAS MARLY SKIN GUARD BEEN ON THE MARKET AND IS IT SAFE?
Marly Skin Guard has been used in Austria, Belgium and Germany since 1989, proving it to be a safe and effective method of skin protection for more than 30 years.
4. IS MARLY SKIN GUARD A REPLACEMENT FOR GLOVES?
In situations where glove use is not mandatory, many health professionals prefer to use Marly Skin Guard instead of gloves. When gloves are required, we recommend that Marly Skin Guard be applied 5 minutes before. This will not only allow the gloves to go on and come off easier, but it will also protect your hands from the irritation and damage that occurs with frequent glove use. In applications where glove use is mandatory by law, we always encourage consumers to follow the guidelines and use the required protection equipment.
5. DOES MARLY SKIN GUARD CONTAIN ANY DISINFECTING OR ANTI-BACTERIAL AGENTS?
No, Marly Skin Guard is not a biocide and does not kill bacteria. However, the long-lasting skin protection provided by Marly Skin Guard allows the user to wash and disinfect their hands multiple times per day without damaging or drying their skin.
6. CAN I APPLY MARLY SKIN GUARD TO MY FACE?
Yes, Marly Skin Guard is both safe and beneficial for all parts of the body. With continued use, Marly Skin Guard provides protection against dermatitis, allergies and skin irritations while providing a therapeutic treatment for dry skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema anywhere on the body.
7. HOW LONG DOES ONE APPLICATION OF MARLY SKIN GUARD LAST?
When applied correctly to dry skin, Marly Skin Guard will protect for 4 hours or more. After about 4 hours, the salt in our sweat naturally breaks down the bond in the network and Marly Skin Guard is slowly lost through perspiration. For continued protection, simply reapply to dry skin every 4 hours.
8. HOW MANY APPLICATIONS ARE IN ONE CAN OF MARLY SKIN GUARD?
One can is 100 ml (3.4 oz), which yields +/- 150 applications.
