Leading dermatologists are recommending and using Skin MD Natural
Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion™ is being recommended for dry skin and tough to handle skin conditions because of its high quality natural ingredients, lack of harsh chemicals, and proven effectiveness. The hydrating protective shield that Skin MD Natural provides helps strengthen and restores the natural skin barrier allowing skin to heal itself. Skin MD Natural lotion is a name you can trust for skin care products that are safe, gentle, and non-irritating.

Dr. Peter Helton board certified dermatologist Newport Beach, California explains the new concept of Shielding Lotions™, benefits of natural ingredients, and why he uses Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion™ himself.
“The concept of a Shielding Lotion™ is relatively new to dermatology and skin treatment. It binds to the skin such that the environment is not allowed to penetrate and desiccate the skin, essentially forming an invisible shield around and throughout the skin just like an invisible glove would. This is important as it allows the moisture to be maintained within the body and disallows, stops any products from harming the skin, like cleansers, acids, and all everyday solvents that we come into contact with.”
“Natural ingredients such as aloe which has been used to treat inflammatory conditions and is known as a natural healing agent used for centuries. Other ingredients such as vitamin E which is anti-oxidant and helps protect the structural integrity of the skin, fat-soluble parts of the body. Natural ingredients such as Arnica Montana, which is also know anti-inflammatory and preventative in bruising. Chamomile which is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and even has calming effects on the skin, is added to Skin MD to make it a more natural product.”
“Skin MD Natural has also an added benefit of forming a natural barrier, sealant on the skin, keeping its own natural moisture inside, This obviates the need for having to put an external moisturizer several times during the day, as Skin MD lasts a good portion of 8 hours with one application. This is important, because it decreases your need for applying excess moisturizer and allows body to take care of its own moisture needs without the added bother of putting on another cream.”
“I frequently use Skin MD here in my dermatologist office as a skin treatment for people who wash their hands several times a day. The added benefit of this product is that it does not wash off right away, as long as you apply it every 6-8 hours it protects your hands better than a pair of gloves.”
“Previously all other moisturizers used glycerin as a humectant. What a humectant is — is an ingredient that draws in moisture from the air and allows moisture to be maintained within the body. Skin MD has a proprietary new ingredient that is proven to be 6 times more effective than glycerin. That is, as far as I know, the only product on the market that has this ingredient.”
“In dermatology studies we use a measurement called trans-epidermal water loss. Basically this measures how much water is evaporating from the skin over a certain period of time. Most moisturizers on the market actually increase the trans-epidermal water loss. Now what this means is that more water is evaporating from the skin, causing a loss of moisture. Skin MD Shielding Lotion™ not only reduced the amount of trans-epidermal water loss, but over time increased the skin’s ability to moisturize itself.”
