The science of skin protection.

Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant is a non-cytotoxic cyanoacrylate-based monomer that forms a remarkably strong protective layer over skin.1 It is designed to act as a barrier against moisture (e.g. body fluids, humidity) and friction, yet it allows the skin to breathe.


Defends and Protects from Moisture, Friction and Adhesives

Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant consists of individual molecules (cyanoacrylate-based monomers). When they come in contact with the moisture on the skin, they bind to each other and molecules on the skin resulting in a durable barrier that is directly bonded to the skin.

Marathon reacts with the moisture and  skin surface to create a strong film that is thicker and more durable than most liquid skin protectants. Marathon is long lasting and stays on the skin until the dead cells shed off naturally.

When Should Marathon Be Used?

Marathon can be used on intact or damaged skin to guard against moisture, friction and adhesives.

  • skin tears
  • perineal/perianal areas with incontinence-associated dermatitis
  • periwounds
  • ostomy sites
  • fistulas
  • incontinence-associated dermatitis

It can also be used under medical devices for added protection.
