Barrier Wash Cloths
£2.34 inc. VAT
Barrier Wash Cloths.
These Barrier Wash Cloths contain 3% Dimethicone which acts as a barrier to wetness and, therefore, helps to protect from Incontinence Associated Dermatitis. Each pack contains 8 large, very thick and soft cloths which have been designed to provide additional skin caring properties to people with incontinence. These barrier wash cloths are suitable for use straight from the pack or warmed for added comfort. Each pack contains an insulated foam insert which aids heat retention once warmed. Each wipe has a special formulation which in addition to its normal cleansing and deodorising functions, incorporates added moisturising agents to hydrate damaged skin, whilst providing a transparent, breathable protective barrier. This barrier also acts to seal in the moisturising properties whilst helping to prevent further damage to vulnerable skin due to additional incontinence episodes. IAD (Incontinence Associated Dermatitis) is a real infection risk to patients who suffer from incontinence and occurs if the perineal skin is not properly cleansed and protected. IAD is caused by increases in moisture as a result of incontinence episodes combined with bacterial and enzymatic activities, breaking down vulnerable perineal skin. Pressure ulcers and lesions are other risks associated with incontinence so use of barrier wash cloths incorporating 3% Dimethicone has been shown in various clinical studies to significantly reduce the prevalence of IAD and potentially less severe lesions for incontinence patients.
