Skin problems in construction and building trades are unfortunately too common. The construction industry is arguably the toughest on the human skin.

Whilst appropriate gloves are desirable and in some cases essential, by themselves they are not always able to stop skin problems occurring. Constant exposure to all kinds of weather conditions, harsh materials and drying agents mean that those working in the construction industry often need help to keep their skin looking and feeling like it should.

Skin problems can start out as something simple as dry skin but if not taken care of will often leads to splits and cracks appearing, particularly around the fingertips, which are not only painful but impact on how effectively work tasks can be carried out. In addition once the skin starts to break down it is increasing the potential for more serious infections.

As one Derma Guard user said:
“I cant believe how my industrial dermatitis has started to clear up, after only a matter of days there is a marked difference on the palms of the hands and even on the soles of my feet, i have been trying to clear up the last bout of I.D. for months now with the obligatory prescribed Dermovate, fucibet etc from the Dr, to no avail, i did use barrier creams for work, but they did not really work, may i say that you product is bloody marvellous!”

How Derma Guard can stop skin problems in construction and building trades.

Derma Guard halts further aggravation of your colleagues’ sensitised skin. Derma Guard’s microscopic shield ensures that, in most cases, the substance causing your colleagues’ skin to dry out is no longer in direct contact with their skin.

Your colleagues can go about their normal duties confident that, despite repeated washing, their skin is being continually moisturised, nurtured and protected for up to 5 hours. Derma Guard is formulated so that it only comes off the skin as the skin sheds naturally. One application will last for four to five hours despite repeated washing and the skin will continue to breathe and perspire normally.

Derma Guard can be worn under gloves and other PPE as a secondary level of protection knowing that your colleagues’ skin is protected should the PPE fail or itself cause skin irritation. Derma Guard’s formulation allows it to be worn under gloves where it will continue to moisturise, nurture and protect your colleagues’ skin.

Keep your colleagues’ skin supple –but not soft. Supple skin doesn’t split – it stretches. To aid faster skin recovery Derma Guard contains high-grade pharmaceutical moisturisers that are locked in to keep your colleagues’ skin supple.

At the end of the workday, dirt and grime will quickly wash away and leave your colleagues’ skin looking and feeling much better. Derma Guard creates a microscopic shield that provides a barrier, stopping dirt and grime attaching to your colleagues’ skin and alleviating the ingrained dirty hands.

Don’t exacerbate existing skin problems. As most of our first time customers are those with skin problems we choose the ingredients of Derma Guard with great care and do not use any fragrances.
