Clinell Barrier Cloths provide a unique all-in-one action of cleansing, moisturising, refreshing, barrier protection, and soothing.
The wipes are quick and easy to use, effectively replacing traditional methods associated with continence care such as; preparing bowls of soap and water, dry wipes, cleansing foams and barrier creams.
Dermatalogically tested, Clinell Barrier Cloths are paraben and lanolin free, containing a patented pH neutral formula with natural plant extracts of witch hazel and camomile which is designed to be gentle on skin.
The wipes are made from thick high quality spun laced non woven 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 Cloths contain 10% barrier cream (4% dimethicone and 6% liquid paraffin) to guard against unwanted moisture and provide that crucial barrier to faeces and urine and hence prevent IAD.
Clinell Barrier Cloths contain a patented formula with an all-in-one action which reduces the time consuming and equipment intensive traditional methods of continence care. By performing this labour intensive task in one quick and easy step, Clinell Barrier Cloths help to increase patient and staff compliance, whilst reducing the risk of hospital acquired infections associated with faecal incontinence. In addition these wipes will prevent the risk of cross-contaminating products such as cleansing foam nozzles.
- Cleansing - Soap-free mild cleansing formula cleans faeces and urine effectively in one go, reducing the amount of sensitive skin handling as in traditional methods of continence care.
- Moisturising - Moisturisers help to prevent the risk of dry skin that repeated washing with soap and water often cause.
- Barrier protection - Provides a barrier to unwanted moisture which in turn allows for quicker healing. As the barrier protection is already in the wipe there is no need for the use of additional barrier creams, thereby reducing the amount of sensitive skin handling and friction damage. Deodorising - Gentle scent helps neutralise odours. Soothing - Natural plant extracts including camomile and witch hazel, provide anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, allowing patients to feel fresh and comfortable.
