Clinell Continence Care Barrier Cloths
Clinell Continence Care Barrier Cloths are quick and easy to use, effectively replacing traditional methods associated with incontinence care such as; preparing bowls of soap and water, dry wipes, cleansing foams and barrier creams. Dermatalogically tested, Clinell Barrier Cloths are alcohol and lanolin free, containing a patented pH neutral formula with natural plant extracts of witch hazel and camomile which is designed to be very gentle on sensitive skin. They are made from thick non-woven spunlace of the highest quality and are available as individual patient packs so as to reduce the risk of cross contamination. Incontinence associated dermatitis (IAD) is an inflammation that occurs when urine and/or faeces comes into contact with the skin. IAD is a complication of incontinence that compromises skin integrity, predisposes to cutaneous infection and increases the risk of pressure ulcers. Prevention of IAD is based on avoiding or minimising exposure to the skin by the application of a skin protectant. Clinell Barrier Wipes contain 10% barrier cream to guard against unwanted moisture and provide that crucial barrier to faeces and urine, therefore helping to prevent IAD.
