Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant (EACH, 0.5 gram Ampules)

Marathon skin protects and heals weepy broken down skin. The no-sting formula lasts days between applications and protects sensitive skin from maceration caused by moisture exposure common in people with colostomies, ileostomies, urostomies, and sensitive skin around wounds may heal.

In simple terms, Marathon is a medical grade glue that bonds to skin and provides protection. Marathon is non-cytotoxic and a cyanoacrylate based monomer used to create a protective layer over the skin

Marathon skin protectant bonds to the skin surface and integrates with the epidermis as the cyanoacrylate polymerizes at the molecular level while supporting the natural integrity of the skin. It provides higher strength and higher resistance to washoff than other thin film barriers. Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant is resistant to external moisture, yet it allows the skin to breathe.

Other Information On Marathon Protectant

Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant Minimizes friction and reduces the risk of developing skin tears

  • Creates a strong physical barrier against abrasive forces.
  • Also recommended for damaged skin to protect against further breakdown.
  • Can be applied to pressure points to avoid the effects of friction which can reduce the risk of skin breakdown.

Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant Protects skin from prolonged exposure to moisture, which weakens and damages the skin surface and makes it more susceptible to breakdown.

  • Incontinence: Marathon should be used on at-risk areas such as the sacrum, buttocks and groin area.
  • Stomas and drain sites: Helps protect the area around stomas and drain sites from breakdown caused by body fluids, exudate and the effect of adhesives.

Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant Maintains skin surface cell integrity

  • Healed wounds never attain the same breaking strength (the tension at which skin breaks) as uninjured skin.
  • Applying Marathon to the skin once it has closed should help protect it and maintain integrity.
