3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film is an easily applied, alcohol-free solution that protects vulnerable peristomal skin from corrosive body fluids, adhesion and uncomfortable friction. Available in wipe form, this gentle terpolymer-based product goes on without irritation to create a breathable, waterproof, fully transparent and longer-lasting film.
With its results supported by over 70 clinical studies, Cavilon Barrier Wipes:
- Dry quickly without leaving a sticky film.
- Accommodate a range of body shapes, including areas with creases and folds, and last through movement and position changes.
- Are gentle on both damaged and healthy skin, thanks to a non-cytotoxic and hypoallergenic formula that protects against incontinence-associated dermatitis.
- Address a range of skin problems, including periwound and peristomal skin damage, incontinence-associated dermatitis, medical adhesive-related skin injury (MARSI) and other moisture- and friction-related issues, including for ostomy system usage.
- Efficiently help maintain skin health, as a patient or as a caregiver assisting someone with one of the above conditions.
- Can be used around IV sites, under dressings and tapes, and with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT).
- Clean and dry the skin
- Apply an even coating of No Sting Barrier Film over the area.
- If you skipped a spot, wait 30 seconds to reapply with Cavilon wipes.
- For skin folds and other areas of skin-to-skin contact, separate the contact areas first before wipe film application, and allow the skin to dry fully before releasing.
- With tapes, dressings and adhesive devices, make sure the film dries completely before covering the area, and then reapply No Sting Barrier Film with every change.
- For incontinence, apply every 24 to 72 hours, based on exposure to bodily fluids and cleansing.
- Avoid using lotions, creams, ointments and pastes in conjunction with No Sting Barrier Film.
This product is part of 3M’s comprehensive plan for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) and venous leg ulcers (VLU). Too often, dressing changes and exudate overflow result in skin irritation, causing a lag in wound healing. Protection of at-risk periwound skin from excess exudate and mechanical trauma is an essential element in treating these often-stubborn conditions.
