A clear improvement on traditional treatment options, 3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant is designed to deliver Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis (IAD) protection and prevention — even in the presence of continued incontinence. Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant creates a highly durable, ultra-thin, transparent barrier that lasts up to seven days and doesn’t require removal, protecting patient skin like never before.
Creates a protective environment that supports healing and helps pain associated with IAD.1
It offers protection that flexes and stretches to significantly reduce frequency of reapplication.2
Attaches to wet, weepy damaged skin surfaces (i.e. superficial partial thickness skin loss).1
Allows easy, gentle cleansing with no removal required.
Robert Asmus is driven to create products that solve real-world issues. As lead scientist for 3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant, he developed this game-changing skin barrier with the power to stop, reverse and prevent Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis (IAD).
3M chemists partnered with leading clinicians and Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis experts to develop Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant. The results of clinical studies in two nursing care facilities speak for themselves.
Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant may be transparent when applied, but the benefits of improved protection and prevention are quickly visible.
