Moisture and barrier application is especially vital as a part of a skin care regimen to prevent IAD (Incontinence Associated Incontinence):
Zinc Oxide Spray protects and regenerates the skin, promoting a natural skin restoration for up to 24 hours.
Thanks to its spray applicator, friction is minimized. The applicator also helps to prevent cross-contamination.
ABENA's Zinc Oxide Spray 10% is known for its antiseptic properties and the product has been designed to help calm irritated skin. Our Zinc spray has proven to be excellent in promoting a healthy skin condition, and, furthermore, you can still observe the skin’s condition as you only spray a small amount of product on the skin.
Shake the bottle before use, spray the product in a sweeping movement 10-15 cm from the patient and often 2 sprays are enough to cover the behind of the patient.
ABENA's Skincare Ointment is ideal for very dry and/or irritated skin. Its formula helps maintain a natural moisture level of the skin. The special ingredients together with the high lipid content of 41% helps to improve the skin's texture and can, in some cases, help repair the skin.
Skincare Ointment provides an effective barrier, making it suitable for preventing IAD.
Apply a thin layer of ointment, but be careful not to use too much product, as it will clot the incontinence product and prevent the skin from breathing.
Each time the incontinence product is changed, screen the skin for redness, inflammation, rash, pain, or itching to assess the severity and development of IAD (and to ensure the patient has not developed pressure ulcers).
