Barrier Cream

Barrier Cream

Barrier cream protects the skin from bodily fluids by providing a moisture barrier. It protects dry, chafed, red or irritated skin by moisturizing the skin and providing a long-lasting barrier. Barrier cream shows good permeability for oxygen and water vapor so that the skin can breathe. Barrier cream can be used with most medical adhesive tapes without affecting the adhesive properties of the tape. It is supplied non-sterile in sachet or tube formats. 

Typical Application

Barrier cream is supplied as a white cream and intended for use as a moisturizing barrier protectant for dry and irritated skin. When applied to intact or damaged skin, the product forms a durable barrier that works as a protective shield between the skin and bodily wastes, fluids, adhesive products and frictional forces. The product is designed to assist barrier resistance against irritation from body fluids and can be used in conjunction with medical adhesive tapes.
