Frequently Asked Questions regarding DermaShield

HOW DOES DERMA SHIELD WORK ?
Derma Shield has specially formulated ingredients, which form a chemical molecular bond with the epithelial or top layer of the skin. The mesh-like bond actually keeps most elements from penetrating into the lower layers of skin where stains, odour retention and damage can occur. The would-be problem causing elements simply stay isolated on the skin's surface where they can be more easily cleaned off when you have completed your tasks.
