Shield Barrier Cream Cloths make it easy to protect skin from incontinence moisture that can lead to a condition that nurses call Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis, or IAD for short. IAD is inflammation or damage that can occur to the skin around the genital area after contact with urine or feces.1 This painful skin damage can be a major risk factor for pressure injuries, also known as bedsores.2

Unlike other pastes and creams, each cloth contains our long-lasting dimethicone barrier cream goes on clear, so you can monitor skin for signs of redness or irritation. The all-in-one cloths are gentle on skin, yet strong enough to stand up during cleanup. Shield’s package is resealable and portable.

  • Enriched with moisturizers to keep skin soft
  • 3% dimethicone barrier seals out wetness to treat and protect skin

3% Dimethicone Barrier

Inadequate incontinence care and exposure to moisture puts skin at risk for incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD), a painful red inflammation of the skin surrounding areas of incontinence that is a known risk factor for painful pressure ulcers. You can help prevent skin breakdown by applying a barrier after each incontinence episode.

Our 3% dimethicone formula was proven equivalent to traditional tube barrier creams by Northwestern University's Department of Dermatology. 4 Unlike those sticky, hard to remove creams, our dimethicone barrier dries and comes in a convenient cloth, not a tube.

Peri Check? Helps Promote Skin Inspection and Communication

Our Peri Check ? Guide was created to help hospital staff monitor patient skin condition and communicate concerns to other medical staff, but it can be used by caregivers at any level.

I use the barrier cloths and then apply Calmoseptin. I find that the Caloseptin is applied more easily using the barrier cloths. No more bed sores!

brought some of these wipes home from the hospital when my Dad was in for a short stay recently and was surprised and quite happy that they are available to the general public . web address was on the package and was easy to find them on the site . happy to find they were not as expensive as I thought they would be . shipping was reasonable and I received them in just three days ; ordered Friday, received Monday . they work great because they have the skin crème right in the cloth . I recommend them to anyone who has or is caring for someone with incontinence .

Sage Barrier Cream Cloths & Cleansing Wash Cloths

Cons:
My husband was bedfast for 25 days and required diapers. I tried another product and he broke out badly. Someone I knew had used your Cleansing Wash Cloths and was very pleased with them so I decided to order them. While on your Web site I saw the Barrier Cream Cloths. I ordered both, used them several times a day and never had a problem. I highly recommend them.

Great product. I use after a shower in delicate areas to prevent chafing & raw skin problems. I was without these for a few weeks & the problem areas were getting irritated again. One week of using these wipes again & the problems were gone.
