A barrier against workplace skin conditions

Gloves In A Bottle lotion, from Medloyd Healthcare, offers all-in-one protection and care for dry skin like never before, explains director Rob Oosthuizen.

The rate at which the world has been industrialised over the past few decades has meant that employees involved in the manufacturing processes are continually exposed to moisture-depleting irritants. This has led to a drastic increase in adverse work-related skin conditions, which include dry, cracked, red, itchy and flaky skin.

What is a moisture-depleting irritant?

It is an irritant that has the ability to remove the natural moisture, lipids and oils from the skin.

Those irritants considered to be high up on the list include: chemicals, resins, adhesives, soaps and detergents, solvents, paint, dirt, grease, grime, powdered latex or vinyl gloves, cement, caustic cleaners and petrochemicals.

Industries affected 

These include: petrochemical, engineering and manufacturing, agriculture, hospitals and laboratories, tyre and rubber, military, aviation, gas and electric, banking, food, cosmetic and beauty, plastic, construction and mining … the list is almost endless.

What is Gloves In A Bottle?

Gloves In a Bottle is an all-in-one shielding and skincare lotion for dry skin that keeps the “good stuff in and the bad stuff out”.

It locks out moisture-depleting irritants, while simultaneously locking in the natural moisture, lipids and oils of the skin for long-lasting and deep-rooted nourishment through all seven layers of the skin.

It does not wash off and will endure multiple washes.  A single application will last for four to 12 hours.

How does it work?

When applied, it attaches to the very outer surface of the skin, creating a microscopic, undetectable, web-like protective barrier over the surface of the skin. It allows the skin to breathe and perspire naturally.

By simultaneously locking in the natural moisture and oils and locking out the moisture depleting irritants, it creates the perfect platform for a naturally nourished, healthy and vital skin.

What is the difference between Gloves In A Bottle and a conventional artificial moisturiser?

The technology associated with these two types of products is almost completely opposite. Conventional artificial moisturisers simply flood the external surface of the skin with artificial moisture. Studies show that these artificial moisturisers do not penetrate beneath the first layer of skin. Artificial moisturisers do not offer a protective barrier and they wash off.

Gloves In a Bottle protects against the removal of the natural moisture and oils of the skin and also locks these in to achieve natural nourishment of the skin – from the inside out – through all seven layers of the skin. It does not wash off and the results are long lasting.

Reasons for using Gloves In A Bottle

Gloves In a Bottle is not a replacement for protective apparel, but protective apparel does not always provide sufficient protection to ensure that the skin is not adversely affected. Gloves In a Bottle should be used as a first line of protection.

A company with healthy employees has increased productivity, and Gloves In a Bottle reduces downtime for employees affected by work-related skin conditions.
