3M Cavilon foam applicator protects intact, damaged or 'at-risk' skin from irritation. This may be due to urinary or faecal incontinence, leakage of digestive juices or wound exudate, and peri-wound maceration. 3M™ Cavilon™ no sting barrier film forms a uniform waterproof film on the skin, which is colourless and transparent for easy skin monitoring. The product contains no alcohol, so does not sting, even on severely excoriated, reddened or stripped skin. 3M™ Cavilon™ no sting barrier film provides up to 72 hours of protection, for clinically proven, cost-effective care.
