Contiplan - Contiplan - All in One Cleansing Cloths provide a unique one step solution to cleanse, moisturise and protect. The wipes are quick and easy to use, effectively replacing traditional methods associated with continence care such as; preparing bowls of soap and water, dry wipes, cleansing foams and barrier creams. Dermatalogically tested, Contiplan is paraben and lanolin free, containing a patented pH neutral formula with natural plant extracts of witch hazel and camomile which is designed to be gentle on skin.
The wipes are made from thick high quality spun laced non woven and are available as individual patient packs so as to reduce the risk of cross contamination. Incontinence associated dermatitis (IAD) is an inflammation that occurs when urine and/or faeces comes into contact with the skin.
IAD is a complication of incontinence that compromises skin integrity, predisposes to cutaneous infection and increases the risk of pressure ulcers. Prevention of IAD is based on avoiding or minimising exposure to the skin by the application of a skin protectant.
Contiplan - All in One Cleansing Cloths contain 10% barrier cream (4% dimethicone and 6% liquid paraffin) to guard against unwanted moisture and provide that crucial barrier to faeces and urine and hence prevent IAD.
