Cavilon Durable Barrier Cream provides unique, long-lasting protection from bodily fluids whilst moisturising the skin. It is recommended to prevent skin breakdown on intact skin and is safe for use on injured skin. It is both fragrance and parabens free and the highly concentrated formula means a little goes a long way. It is available in a cost effective 92g tube, new 28g tube or convenient 2g sachet format.
Cavilon Durable Barrier Cream protects intact or at 'at-risk' or injured skin against bodily fluids such as urine and faeces, and is ideal to prevent skin breakdown in incontinent patients. It is also an effective moisturiser for severely dry skin. It can be used in conjunction with moisture retentive adhesive dressings that promote healing, such as transparent film and hydrocolloids.
