Abstract

Lotion compositions for applying topically to skin include a barrier-forming polymer mixture and an anti-microbial agent. The polymer dries on skin to form a barrier which prevents pathogens, solvents and petrochemicals from penetrating into the skin. The barrier is resistant to being washed off for at least several hours, during which time the antibacterial agent effectively kills a broad spectrum of bacteria within seconds after contact.
