Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant (Box of 5)

Bandages and plasters are effective at protecting wounds, but they aren't the most hygienic, convenient or comfortable. The Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant (Box of 5) is a cyanoacrylate non-toxic liquid which creates a barrier between irritated skin and the environment while keeping the area breathable. Ideal for applications in medical, care and home environments, this pack of five allows professionals to protect patients from further injuries in complete comfort.

What's Included?

  • 5 x Skin Protector Applicators

Key Features

  • Five skin protector applicators for cost-effective bulk-buying
  • Contains 0.5ml of liquid per applicator, for plenty of uses with each purchase
  • Liquid material glides onto the skin for effortless application
  • Sting-free design can be used on closed wounds and weak skin
  • Can be used under other medical devices for versatile applications

What is the Medline Marathon Skin Protectant?

Marathon Skin Protectant is a non-cytotoxic and fast-drying liquid barrier film for the protection of damaged or intact skin, almost acting as a second layer of skin. It is applied as a liquid and dries within a minute, adhering to the contours of the skin to form a transparent flexible film. Marathon no-sting cyanoacrylate skin protectant will wear off naturally as the skin regenerates, protecting the patient from pain caused by rubbing.

How to Apply the Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant

Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant is contained in a single-use sterile applicator. Each 0.5ml applicator can cover a 4 x 4" area.

  1. The product should be applied in a very thin layer, without covering the site more than once. 
  2. Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant can be used when the epidermis is broken or damaged. However, it should not be applied directly to deep, open, chronic or bleeding wounds.
  3. Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant adheres to the skin and dries in less than a minute.
  4. Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant can remain on the skin for several days. It will wear off naturally as the skin regenerates. 

Indications of Use

Marathon no-sting cyanoacrylate skin protectant is particularly useful for the following applications when skin has been exposed to:

  • Irritation from moisture such as urine, faeces, digestive juices, perspiration and wound drainage
  • Fiction and shear from bedding, clothing and shoes
  • Against irritation caused by adhesive products

Can It Be Used Under Medical Devices?

Yes. The Marathon Skin protectant can be used under medical devices if necessary. This means it can be used for a versatile range of treatments within various industries.

Protects Weak and Injured Skin

Marathon Skin Protectant forms a strong protective layer over compromised skin, by way of a cyanoacrylate base. This wound-care product can be used as a barrier to protect skin wounds and damaged, fragile, peri-wound and peri-stomal skin from friction, moisture, shear or adhesive stripping.

Complete Skin Wound Care

Marathon Skin Protectant provides complete skin wound care by way of the creation of a strong film that is thicker and more durable than most liquid skin protectants. This strong film is created when the cyanoacrylate base comes in contact with moisture on the skin’s surface. When the cyanoacrylate polymerises to the skin’s surface, the product remains on the skin and does not evaporate upon application.

Offers Total Protection

In order to maintain skin integrity for even longer periods, 100 per cent of the Marathon Skin Protectant stays on the skin until skin cells are shed naturally. This skin glue gives certainty to patients and their healthcare providers that they are thoroughly protected from further damage.

How Does the Skin Protectant Benefit Patients?

Patients benefit from this skin glue because the Marathon Skin Protectant is:

  • Robust and flexible
  • Causes no stinging sensation
  • Maintains breathable skin protection
  • Dries quickly
  • Is long-lasting

Where Can I Use the Liquid Skin Protectant?

The Liquid Skin Protectant is beneficial in the following environments:

  • Care Homes
  • Rehabilitation Centres
  • Hospitals
  • Gyms

The Medline Protectant could also be kept in a first aid kit in work spaces and at home.

Brilliant liquid skin
19 May 2024  |  Sandra

This product is brilliant. I had an osotomy recently and now have a stoma bag. My skin was extremely delicate around this area and started to weep. I then researched products and came across marathon liquid skin.
The capsules look small but a little goes a long way. The capsule lasted for 2 coverings which has completely healed my skin
The only down fall the product is price but in my opinion itís well worth it

Outstanding!
30 April 2024  |  Susan

My son has had an abscess under his stoma pouch for over a year. Even though his stoma nurse prescribed him different dressings, steroids and antibiotics, the sore got worse.
I decided to Google for advice and came across Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant. I was getting desperate to find something that worked as my son was in pain and I worried about how big this sore was going to get.
I was shocked at the quick delivery.
My son and I watched a video on how to apply the Liquid. It was so easy to use.
My son stated it was the first time for ages that his sore wasn't hurting under his stoma pouch.
When my son changed his stoma pouch again, the difference to his sore was incredible. The sore, at long last, was healing. My son applied another Liquid, and again, when it was time to change his pouch again, we was over the moon at how his sore was healing.
My son and I think the Marathon Liquid is incredible. Over a year my son has been in pain with this abscess and within a week of using the Marathon Liquid, his sore is so much better.
I've just ordered another 5 as we are ecstatic over the results.
Thank you!

I was having trouble with sore skin around my stoma. Read about this product so gave it a try with good results.
Service was very good as I received it the following day.
