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.

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.
