The power of 3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant

Featuring 3M’s revolutionary polymer-cyanoacrylate technology, 3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant is designed to help manage moderate to severe skin damage and protect at-risk skin.2,3 The ultra-thin yet highly durable barrier is able to attach to wet, weepy surfaces and create a protective environment that repels irritants and supports healing.1,2,3

The Science of Advanced Skin Protection

  • Unique, elastomeric polymer

    The polymer forms a coating that can elongate and conform, avoiding the cracking seen with other moisture barriers. This assures greater barrier integrity, durability and protection against challenging irritants such as liquid stool and gastric fluid.1,2,3

  • Revolutionary polymercyanoacrylate system

    The cyanoacrylate enables attachment of the skin protectant to damaged skin that is wet and weeping. Once on the skin, the protective coating creates an environment that repels irritants and supports healing and comfort.1,2,3 Remember: if a moisture barrier product cannot reliably attach to the underlying skin, it’s not capable of reliable protection.

  • Non-stinging solvent

    The polymer-cyanoacrylate system is delivered onto the skin by a non-stinging solvent in a single-use applicator that reduces the potential for cross-contamination.1,2 Plus Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant doesn’t require removal, making wear easier for patients and for clinicians.

What makes it so revolutionary?

  • Creates a protective environment that supports healing and helps pain associated with IAD1*

  • sIt offers protection that flexes and stretches to significantly reduce the frequency of application.2

  • Allows easy, gentle cleansing with no removal required.

  • The ultra-thin yet highly durable barrier is able to attach to wet, weepy surfaces and create a protective environment that repels irritants and supports healing.2,3

    Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant is not an analgesic.
