Q12:    Will MARLY SKIN GUARD™ help clear up my baby’s diaper rash?

A12:   Yes. MARLY SKIN GUARD™ will help clear up a baby’s diaper rash and helps prevent them from reoccurring. The problem with traditional topical ointments is they are applied to the rash, then the diaper goes on, then the ointment rubs off into the diaper clogging its pours causing the diaper to fail and where the ointment rubbed off, the skin is exposed to urine and feces, causing the rash to worsen. MARLY SKIN GUARD™ is sting free and once applied to the rash it dries in the skin, so it does not rub off into the diaper, so the diaper maintains full absorbency and MARLY SKIN GUARD™ helps protect the skin from residual urine and feces and allows the skin to heal itself often within 12 to 24 hours. This results in much happier babies and their parents.

Beauty industry worker’s hands are always wet and they are constantly touching products such as shampoos, conditioners, hair dyes and permanents, all of which are very harmful to the skin with ongoing exposure. MARLY SKIN GUARD™ benefits these people by creating a barrier in the skin protecting them from the negative effects of handling all these products. And MARLY SKIN GUARD™ can be applied to the customer’s hairline prior to dying, and most dyes will not stain their scalp.
