    Clean, Healthy Skin, No Hassles

    Essential Bath provides the ultimate comfort for bathing with the added benefit of eliminating all other products, including water! There's no more need for soap, water, washcloths or even moisturizers. Unlike washcloths, which can be rough and harsh, Essential Bath pre-moistened cloths are ultra-soft, yet thick, and are gentle on even sensitive skin. Regular soaps and water can dry skin, but each cloth of Essential Bath comes soaked in a unique blend of mild, rinse-free cleansers and skin-protecting moisturizers like aloe and vitamin E, leaving skin softer, healthier and smooth to the touch. Our unique formula is hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, and pH-balanced for healthy skin.

    Each package of Essential Bath products contains 8 cloths, one for each area of the body. Indulge in a comforting bath while cleansing and moisturizing skin.

    Soothing Warmth in Seconds

    Giving a relaxing, soothing and warm bath is easier than ever, just put Essential Bath packages in the microwave! Unlike basin water, which starts cooling immediately, Essential Bath's insulated package keeps cloths warm throughout the bathing process.

    Ultra-Soft and Durable Washcloths

    You don't have to worry about Essential Bath washcloths not holding up during bathing. Our washcloths have superior strength and durability while being softer than the average laundered washcloth. Essential Bath provides a stronger and easier alternative to ordinary thin, flimsy wipes that can tear during bathing.

    Don't Catch the Basin Bug

    If you've spent the night in the hospital, you've probably used an unassuming pale pink, yellow, or blue bath basin. What you may not know about these basins is that they can easily become contaminated with bacteria and can lead to infection.

    Prepackaged bathing helps eliminate the basin and its associated contamination risks. In fact, 95% of hospital nurses surveyed agreed that prepackaged bathing is a cleaner and potentially safer method than basin bathing1. A separate survey found that 86% of infection control professionals recognize that the bath basin is a potential safety risk1. One published medical study took samples from 1,103 basins in 88 hospitals and found that 100% of the participating hospitals had basins that tested positive for bacteria2. Here are some of the bacteria they found:

    • Staphylococcus, the bacteria associated with Staph infections
    • VRE, a bacteria resistant to several antibiotics
    • MRSA, also known as the"superbug"3
    Contact with these bacteria can lead to serious infections. Comfort and Essential Bath ? washcloths eliminate the contamination risk by eliminating the need for basins. Each Essential Bath cloth provides high quality, pre-moistened cloths. Now you can bathe in the comfort of your own home.

    Hassle-Free Bathing

    when using Essential Bath, you don't need multiple bathing supplies or the need for a water source, which eliminates the risk of getting someone with limited mobility into a tub or shower. Essential Bath eliminates the need for soap, water, washcloths and moisturizers

    What is pH-balanced?

    The pH scale ranges from 0-14 and measures how acidic or basic a substance is. Normal, healthy skin has a pH between 4.5 to 5.5. Most deodorant bar soaps have a pH between 9.5 to 12.0, a difference in pH that can be harsh on the skin, leaving it dry and altering the skin pH level. All Essential Bath? products have pH levels between 4.7 to 4.9, well within the range of healthy skin.

    What is Skin Check??

    Skin Check is a peel off guide that comes on every package of Sage Essential Bath? products to help monitor and report changes in skin condition. It was originally designed to improve communication in hospitals, but can be used by caretakers at any level to promote routine skin care.

    Basin Baths (Sponge Baths) - Potentially Harmful

    The basin bath (sponge bath) is a common bathing practice performed both in hospitals and the home. But a recent study shows that 98% of basins tested at several sites were contaminated with bacteria, including the "superbug" MRSA. 1

    Overall Customer Rating of 54 Reviews:

    They are wonderful!

    I ordered both washcloths and barrier wipes and they are great! The barrier wipes are comforting and the no-rinse washcloths are much easier to use (like soaping up in the shower) and much neater than a panful of water and soap. i plan to keep using both as long as necessary.

    Great product!

    <p>My son is disabled and needs a bed bath daily. These bath wipes are the best I've found. They used these on him in the hospital and they were so nice that I looked them up. I'm so glad they are available for home use! I've tried other brands and they are just not the same. Highly recommend them to others for homecare home bound clients.</p>


    <p>I have polycythemia vera and these body wipes are God sent. In my condition I am not to be exposed to water because it causes a severe, painful itch-water pritus. So this product is a blessing. Thank you from this product.</p>

    • Quality
    • convenience
    <p>I was introduced to this product when I had to go to a rehab facility after back surgery. Not being able to shower, these wipes were amazing! They left you fresh, with no sticky feeling on your skin. While I'm home recovering, I still use these to freshen up when I don't shower.</p>

    Great Between Shower Cleanup

    <p>These Sage washcloths are gentle yet clean thoroughly. Great for those that are recovering from a medical issue and can't take a shower everyday. Also, great for personal clean up when camping or travelling.</p>
