3M Adds New Products To Cavilon Brand Portfolio

3M Critical & Chronic Care Solutions Division today announced the release of two new products, 3M™ Cavilon™ Bathing & Cleansing Wipes and 3M™ Cavilon™ 3-in-1 Total Care Cloths. The new offerings from 3M help clinicians to address the needs for efficacy and efficiency across care settings, and join the trusted line of Cavilon solutions used in incontinence care applications.

A concern for both patients and caregivers, incontinence can lead to the development of Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis (IAD), which is a well-known risk factor in the development of pressure ulcers. 1 IAD has been reported to occur in 42 percent of incontinent hospitalized adults and up to 95 percent of incontinent patients in the intensive care unit. 1,2 In addition, approximately 50 percent of nursing home residents live with incontinence on a daily basis. 3

The new Cavilon products help clinicians adhere to IAD prevention protocols and simplify care regimens for efficiency. According to recent clinical consensus 4 use of a soft, disposable cloth is a preferred approach for incontinence cleansing. In a U.S. comparison study, use of a no-rinse cleanser saved caregivers valuable time: an average of 9 minutes per episode 5.

Cleansing, Moisturizing, Protecting

Both new Cavilon products combine gentle pH-balanced cleansing and emollient-based moisturizing ingredients, which help to maintain the skin’s natural barrier. Cavilon 3-in-1 Total Care Cloths also provide protection from moisture and irritants through the use of dimethicone, an ingredient well-documented as an effective protective barrier. New 3M Bathing & Cleansing Wipes, which are useful for bathing as well as incontinence care, are compatible with 3M’s protection barrier products, 3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film and 3M™ Cavilon™ Durable Barrier Cream. Each product is available in re-sealable 8- and 24-packs.

“Our new products are consistent with the high level of care expected from the Cavilon brand while addressing our customers’ need for efficient and convenient solutions,” said Leslie McDonnell, Vice President Global Marketing, 3M Chronic & Critical Care Solutions Division. “With these additions to our brand portfolio, we continue to expand our full suite of products for best practice care and improved patient outcomes.”
