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
  • Resealable, portable package

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.

Product Review-Sage wipes

Rating:
Pros:
Cons:
We haven't used this product for that many days but it does seem to be helping clear up the yeast infection in the groin area. It doesn't leave the mess like the nyastatin and desitin cream we have been using.

Wipes

Rating:
Pros:
  • Thick and absorbent
Cons:
  • Pricey but worth the extra cost
The wipe is thick and absorbent and cleans very well. It's also a larger size than some other wipes. It's much better than other wipes we've have that are thin and flimsy.

  • None
My wound care doctor told me to use barrier wipes on the areas of my body where I am susceptible to pressure sores. I was so pleased to find these wipes. They cost about a third of what the other wipes cost, and they are just as good or better than the others I have tried.

Rating:
Pros:
  • Built-in barrier cream
Cons:
  • Size
The NICU started us with these wipes when my twins were there and we've been purchasing them for home. Because they are so large, we end up cutting them into smaller pieces to use on our babies, which is a bit labor intensive. They're still very convenient for when we need to apply barrier cream.
