3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film

Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film is an alcohol-free liquid barrier film that dries quickly to form a breathable, transparent coating on the skin. It is designed to protect intact, damaged or 'at-risk' skin from urine, faeces, other body fluids, adhesive trauma and friction. It comes in a variety of easy to apply formats: 1ml foam applicator, 3ml foam applicator, 28ml pump spray and a stoma wipe. It lasts for up to 72 hours1, and will not sting when applied to broken skin2.


Indications for Use

  • Primary barrier against body fluids, for improved continence care3
  • Protective barrier to protect against adhesive medical devices2
  • Skin protection around stoma sites
  • Peri-wound protection from exudate

Features & Benefits

  • Proven to provide up to 72 hours of protection from body fluids making it a cost-effective treatment1
  • Non–petrolatum based so will not clog or reduce the absorbency of incontinence pad linings4
  • Sterile and non-cytotoxic: will not interfere with skin or wound healing2


  • Allow the product to dry completely before applying pads or clothing
  • Applying too many layers of product may make the area feel stiff
  • Use of the product with other barrier ointments, creams or lotions may significantly reduce its effectiveness
  • Not to be used on infected areas of the skin - for example fungal infections
