Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant is a non-cytotoxic cyanoacrylate film barrier safeguarding the skin against friction and moisture-related maceration. It reacts with moisture to form a robust film, thicker and more enduring than typical liquid skin protectants, staying on until dead cells naturally shed. Bonding to the skin and integrating with the epidermis, Marathon supports the skin's natural integrity as the cyanoacrylate polymerizes at the molecular level.

What to buy with Marathon Skin Protectant


How does Marathon Cyanoacrylate Skin Protectant work?

MARATHON Cyanoacrylate Skin Protectant consists of individual molecules (cyanoacrylate-based monomers) that polymerize when they come in contact with moisture on the skin surface. This reaction continues until 100% of the monomer molecules have joined either to each other (cohesion) or to molecules of substances present in skin (adhesion).
This type of bonding with skin ensures that the product remains in place until the epidermal cells naturally slough away, maintaining skin integrity. Because no solvents are used, there is no evaporation and 100% of the product remains on the skin.


How to use Marathon Skin Protectant?

  1. Clean and dry the skin, making sure that no moisturizer or ointment is left on the skin.
  2. Hold the applicator upright with the sponge tip at the top. Crush the sealed inner tube by firmly squeezing the middle of the tube.
  3. If additional pressure is needed, include your other hand. Do not try to bend or snap the tube in half.
  4. Turn the applicator upside down and gently squeeze it to allow the liquid to soak through the sponge tip.
  5. Once the sponge is wet, slowly and gently spread a thin, even coat of Marathon that extends about 2.5 cm beyond the affected area.
