3M’s Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant creates a waterproof, flexible barrier that helps prevent Incontinence Associated Dermatitis (IAD), reduces the need for reapplication and improves upon traditional paste-based solutions.

How it Works

This no-removal, long-lasting barrier can be worn for up to seven days without damaging the skin and prevents irritants from worsening the patient’s condition.

In the process:

  • The material protects against gastric fluid and liquid stool while allowing the patient to move naturally.
  • Compared to pastes, Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant provides a higher degree of transparency for improved monitoring.
  • A single-use applicator prevents potential cross-contamination and helps improve healing.
  • Once in place, Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant won’t shift or detach, no matter if the patient has dry or wet skin or a weeping wound.
  • Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant won’t damage or irritate the skin during the removal process.
  • Following removal, the skin simply needs to be cleaned.


The solution is ideal for:

  • Peristomal and peritube skin protection
  • Addressing moisture and friction lesions
  • Reversing and preventing the spread of IAD
  • Reducing patient pain
