How does 2skin work?

Applying the gel integrates the upper skin layer, forming a non pore blocking lubricating and protective film. This strengthens the cellular structure of the skin and distributes the pressure over a wider surface area. As a result, it prevents chafing and blistering.

Is 2skin more effective if applied repeatedly?

The protective film and the performance of 2skin can be reinforced by applying it several times, according to individual needs and requirements.

How long do I have to wait to get dressed after applying 2skin?

The gel does not require any time to dry and spreads quickly over the skin. You can cover the relevant parts of the body with clothing just 20 seconds after application.

Is 2skin water-resistant?

Yes, 2skin works in water and is not washed away.

Is it compatible with a wetsuit or neoprene clothing?

pjuractive 2skin is safe to use with functional sports clothing and wetsuits. It can be used with no worries.

Can 2skin be used by people not involved in sport?

2skin is suitable for anyone who suffers chafing and blistering because of rubbing of skin on skin or clothing on skin. Many women have problems with chafing and blistering when wearing summer shoes without stockings, in high heels or on the insides of the thighs. 2skin is ideal for preventing these problems. People who wear protective clothing at work (e.g. police, firefighters, military) can also use 2skin to protect the skin against chafing and blistering.

How do I remove 2skin again after use?

soap or shampoo.

Further use/instructions for use

Can I apply pjuractive 2skin to all areas of skin?

2skin can be used on all areas of skin. After all, depending on physical activity and the sensitivity of the skin, every individual can suffer chafing and blistering on different parts of the body.

Is one application of pjuractive 2skin enough?

One application of 2skin to the relevant areas of skin is normally sufficient. A single application guarantees the desired protection. However, the protective film can be reinforced by multiple applications of 2skin. For long distances or long training sessions, we at pjuractive would definitely recommend multiple applications of 2skin.

How should I apply 2skin if the skin is going to be under heavy pressure?

If the affected parts of the body are under immense strain, for example due to long distance, we recommend either applying 2skin several times at the beginning to reinforce the protective film, or repeating the application during the activity.

Can pjuractive 2skin be applied to inflamed areas of skin?

2skin is designed to prevent soreness and blisters. Inflamed areas of skin should therefore be allowed to heal first before 2skin is used for prevention.

Can pjuractive 2skin also help if I already have skin irritation or blisters?

2skin is designed for prevention during training or competition. It does not help to soothe existing blisters or skin irritation.

Can I apply pjuractive 2skin under my chest strap?

2skin can be applied under chest straps to prevent chafing. This should not affect the chest strap's general performance. Chest straps are used during training sessions to measure heart rate. In order to do this, the chest strap has to come into direct contact with the skin. This means that the sensors of the chest strap have to be dampened with water to boost conduction/data transfer. pjuractive 2skin may be all you need to ensure the conduction/data transfer required. However, this may vary depending on the chest strap and a test should be done beforehand.

 

Other general FAQs

What happens if 2skin comes into contact with open skin/an open wound?

Essentially, nothing will happen in this situation as the ingredients of pjuractive 2skin cannot get into the body through the wound. This is prevented by the body‘s natural and constant water transport from inside to outside through the skin. In addition, only a water-soluble formula can get into the body, e.g. through wounds, but pjuractive 2skin is not water-soluble.

Can 2skin get into the bloodstream?

When used externally on the skin, 2skin cannot get into the bloodstream. There is no risk at all.

What is the ideal amount of 2skin to use? How I do know whether I have applied enough?

It is difficult to state an optimum application amount as the required amount depends on the individual‘s skin condition and structure. A drop of pjuractive 2skin is definitely sufficient for a small area of skin. The larger the area to be protected, the more 2skin is necessary. The condition of the skin also plays a role. More 2skin has to be used on dry skin. The amount required may also increase with oily skin. It is also difficult to say when a sufficient amount of 2skin has been applied, as this depends on the individual‘s skin type and the area of skin where it is to be rubbed in. We therefore recommend trying out different amounts.

How do you get the product off the hands/skin again?

The best way to remove 2skin from your hands is with soap. If you are outside, wiping them on a cloth also works. Make sure that you wipe it off well so that your hands are not slippery.

Does the product dissolve when used? If so, why?

2skin does not dissolve when used. It binds to the upper layer of skin, the epidermis, and then simply evaporates after a certain amount of time.

Can you get 2skin out of clothing after use? Even cotton and sensitive clothing fabrics?

2skin doesn‘t leave behind marks. If 2skin leaves any residue on clothing, it can be washed out using normal detergent. If possible, wait a short time after application before covering the area with your clothing; then there should be no residue.

What happens if you drink 2skin? Is it toxic?

pjuractive 2skin is not toxic. However, drinking 2skin may result in diarrhea.

What happens if you get 2skin in the eyes? What should I do?

If you get 2skin in your eye, you should first rinse out the eye with clean water that is not too cold. You should then seek medical attention as a precaution.

Does continuous silicone use damage the skin? Can any side-effects occur?

When developing 2skin, pjuractive devoted a great deal of attention to optimum skin friendliness. The ingredients used are of carefully selected quality and purity and have undergone numerous tests during product development.
2skin is dermatologically tested and certified. As a result, we are not aware of any side-effects.

Does regular use of silicone harm (small) children?

No, it can be assumed that the use of silicone formulas is not harmful to children. However, because the product has not been specifically tested on children, we are unable to recommend extensive and continuous use on children. The product has been developed for people who exert themselves physically, not for children.

Where is it manufactured? What is added/manufactured during production?

Is it harmful for animals to drink 2skin?

We make it very clear that pjuractive 2skin is not meant for consumption. In general, there is no risk if 2skin is ingested, however, this does depend on the amount that has been swallowed. If a small amount has been consumed, it is safe to assume that it will not do any harm. As a precaution, however, we recommend that you consult a vet if the animal in question has a sensitive digestive tract.

Is it harmful if your pet's skin/coat comes into contact with 2skin?

Once again, if 2skin is used in a normal way (e.g. the user applies it to their hands to prevent blisters and then strokes the animal's fur) this should not cause any damage to the animal's coat. If larger amounts of the liquid come directly into contact with an animal's coat, this could cause the hair/fur to "harden". 2skin is just as harmless to animal skin as it is to human skin.
