The many challenges of skin integrity.

Moisture Associated Skin Damage (MASD) presents negative clinical outcomes resulting in potential complications such as infection, pain and suffering, and a poor patient experience. In addition, skin damage increases the time and cost of care. Exposure over time to factors such as irritants, moisture, friction, shear and adhesives can lead to conditions of skin breakdown, including:

  • Incontinence-associated dermatitis
    Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD)

    Severe inflammation caused by liquid stool, mixed incontinence or urine, which can lead to destruction of the epidermis.

  • Peristomal skin damage
    Peristomal skin damage

    Problem stomas, poor stoma location and high‑volume output, especially that of liquid stool, can contribute to skin injury that can rapidly progress to erosion.

  • Periwound skin damage
    Periwound skin damage

    This type of skin damage is often associated with wounds that produce large quantities of drainage, such as venous ulcers or infected wounds.

  • Intertriginous dermatitis
    Intertriginous dermatitis (ITD)

    Skin damage between skin surfaces due to the interaction of friction and moisture.

    Dealing with the many challenges of MASD

    3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant has been shown to significantly improve severe cases of MASD (Moisture Associated Skin Damage).1 Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant creates a highly durable, ultra-thin, transparent barrier and doesn't require removal.

    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, protecting patient's skin like never before.

The Science of Advanced Skin Protection

3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant has a formulation unlike any other skin protectant or moisture barrier currently available, allowing you to manage damaged skin or protect at-risk skin like never before. But what makes it so different from traditional skin protectants?

  • Unique, elastomeric polymer
    Unique, elastomeric polymer

    3M’s polymer forms a coating with the ability to elongate or conform, avoiding the cracking that can be common with other moisture barriers. This assures greater skin barrier integrity and durability and protection against challenging irritants, such as liquid stool and gastric fluids.

  • Revolutionary polymer-cyanoacrylate system
    Revolutionary polymer-cyanoacrylate system

    Unlike moisture barrier products that cannot reliably attach to underlying skin, 3M’s polymer-cyanoacrylate enables attachment to wet, weepy, damaged skin.¹ Once on the skin, 3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant creates an environment that repels irritants and supports patient healing and comfort.

  • Non-stinging solvent
    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. Plus, 3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant doesn’t require removal, making wear easier for patients and easier for clinicians.
