3M™ Cavilon Durable Barrier Cream + Honey

Cavilon durable barrier cream provides unique, long-lasting protection from body fluids whilst moisturising the skin. It is recommended to prevent skin breakdown on intact skin, and its highly concentrated formula means a little goes a long way. It is available in  92g or 28g tubes.


Indications for Use

  • As a barrier against irritation from bodily fluids
  • Protection of intact skin from damage associated with incontinence
  • As a moisturiser for severely dry or chapped skin

Features & Benefits

  • Honey acts as a natural preservative replacing parabens and perfumes1
  • Provides a barrier and moisturiser suitable for lymphoedema, dermatology, leg ulcer or other patient groups with potential sensitivities
  • Highly concentrated so a little goes a long way
  • Resists wash-off – no need for frequent reapplication, saving time2
  • Provides a breathable skin protectant barrier
  • Will not clog or interfere with the absorbency of incontinence pads3
  • Does not decrease tape or dressing adhesion4


  • Apply sparingly. If the after-feel is oily, you have applied too much
  • Cavilon Durable Barrier Cream + Honey may increase the adherence of some adhesive products. Persons with fragile skin should avoid using the cream under all adhesive products
  • Not to be used on infected areas of the skin - for example fungal infections
