Rinse-Free Barrier Wash Cloths
Extra care for those with incontinence related issues is provided by the use of these 3% Dimethicone barrier wash cloths.
These large, very thick and soft cloths have been designed to provide additional skin caring properties to vulnerable patients. These barrier wash cloths are suitable for use cool straight from the pack, or warmed for added comfort. Each pack contains an insulated foam insert which aids heat retention once warmed. Containing a special formulation which in addition to its normal cleansing and deodorising functions, incorporates added moisturising agents, including 3% Dimethicone, which particularly helps to hydrate damaged skin, providing a transparent, breathable protective barrier, sealing 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/lesions are another risk associated with ncontinence. Use of barrier protection wash cloths incorporating 3% Dimethicone have been shown in various clinical studies to significantly reduce the prevalence of IAD and potentially less severe lesions for incontinence patients.
