Shielding Lotion: Natural Skin Care Treatment for Health Care Professionals

Beverly Hills, CA: August 31, 2011 – Health care professionals are required to frequently wash their hands and use latex gloves to help prevent the transmission of infectious diseases. But frequent hand washing with harsh antibacterial soaps often results in hands with dry, cracked, and painful skin. Many health care workers are looking for a natural skin care solution to combat the problem.

Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is a new natural skin care treatment that works differently than conventional moisturizers. Skin MD Natural is water resistant and helps protect skin throughout frequent hand washings. It also works with skin to strengthen the skin’s own natural defensive barrier, increasing protection from harsh soaps and other irritants.

Dr. Peter Helton, a board certified dermatologist in Newport Beach, CA, is now recommending the product as a natural skin care solution to his patients suffering from dry skin caused by hand washing.  He explains, “I frequently use Skin MD Natural here in my dermatologist office as a skin treatment for people who wash their hands several times a day. The added benefit of this product is that it does not wash off right away. As long as you apply it every 6-8 hours it protects your hands better than a pair of gloves.”

Katie Perrine, a nurse from Ohio, stated “I am a nurse, and that requires near constant washing of your hands… with antibacterial soap. By lunch, my hands are dry, chapped, and ready to bleed, Skin MD Natural is a solution in the form of a lotion.”

Dry skin from frequent hand washing is not the only skin care problem health care workers are facing. According to the CDC, health care workers are at risk for developing latex allergy because they use latex gloves frequently. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reports that studies have shown that 8-12% of health care workers regularly exposed to latex are sensitized. Reactions to latex include skin redness, inflammation, rash, hives, and itching.

Dr. Wayne Weber, a board certified obstetrician/gynecologist from Downey, CA, has found Skin MD Natural to be a natural skin care treatment option that works in preventing dry skin and latex irritation; “I’ve been using Skin MD Natural and I really have found that it has helped me a great deal. I primarily use it because as a gynecological surgeon I scrub my hands a lot, which can cause severe irritation and I have found that it does help prevent irritation as well as allows my skin to have its normal moisture content. 

“Another area that it has really helped me a lot – is constant exposure to latex sensitivity. I use latex gloves, which can cause sensitized skin and lead to possible allergy. It certainly has helped me a great deal and I feel that anything that prevents irritation to the skin, which it certainlydoes as a unique shielding lotion. It has the ability to help prevent that kind of sensitivity, which can possibly develop an allergy down the line.”
