Postal Workers


As a postie, or if you prefer postman or postwoman, you undoubtedly will be exposed to all weather conditions.  While doing your rounds, your job will subject your hands to a variety of weather conditions that can damage your skin.

Winter winds pose the greatest problem when it comes to keeping your skin soft and supple. Chill, icy winds can dry out your skin leaving it brittle and sore. Chapped skin, if left untreated can lead to splits and cracks, especially on the fingertips and across the back of the knuckles.

Protective gloves can help, but many postmen find them inconvenient when handling mail. Some prefer gloves with cut out fingers and these are ideal for protecting the palm and knuckles from the elements, but still leave you vulnerable to split skin on the fingertips.

Moisturisers and barrier creams can help considerably, but most of these leave your hands feeling greasy – and nobody likes to receive their mail with greasy fingerprints on the envelope.

Remember, your hands are your livelihood!

To keep your skin in top condition, you will need to employ a product that moisturises, nurtures and protects.  In addition, it should not leave a greasy residue.

Derma Shield supersedes traditional barrier creams; it creates a non-greasy, microscopic shield that bonds with your skin but still allows it to breathe and perspire naturally. Derma Shield’s 3 in 1 action moisturises, protects and nurtures,  helping to prevent chapped and split skin and encouraging already damaged skin to heal itself.

“As a post-lady, I suffer badly from painful chapped fingers. Sorting the mail first thing in the morning strips my hands of all natural oils and then I spend 4 or more hours out of doors in all weathers with only fingerless gloves for protection during the Winter.

 I came across your website a few weeks ago in an attempt to find something that would stop this from happening, ordered some Derma Shield and have been using it twice daily for just over a week now. Amazingly, my painful split fingers have healed. Nothing has ever worked like this before. Thank you so much.”

So how will Derma Shield help postal workers in their everyday work?

Nurture the skin and help to keep it supple. Supple skin doesn’t split – it stretches.

  • To aid faster skin recovery Derma Shield contains high-grade pharmaceutical moisturisers such as Aloe Vera and Vitamin E that are locked in to keep the skin supple.

Go about your day confident that your dry skin is being moisturised, nurtured and protected.

  • Because Dermashield is designed only to come off the skin as it sheds naturally, one application will last for four to five hours despite repeated washing.

Stop any further damage and enable the skin to recover quickly.
