A clear improvement on traditional treatment options, 3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant is designed to deliver Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis (IAD) protection and prevention — even in the presence of continued incontinence. Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant creates a highly durable, ultra-thin, transparent barrier and doesn’t require removal, protecting patient skin like never before.
It protects your patients from caustic, corrosive body fluids1 without you losing sight of the condition of their skin.
The patented polymer technology provides an elastomeric barrier that flexes and stretches with the contours of the skin, reducing the frequency of application2
It reduces clinician time and patient pain associated with managing IAD.
It provides waterproof, irritant-proof skin protection — even under the most challenging conditions.2
3M chemists partnered with leading clinicians and IAD experts to develop Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant. The results of clinical studies in two nursing care facilities speak for themselves.
Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant may be transparent when applied, but the benefits of improved protection and prevention are quickly visible.
