What is moisture barrier cream?

Paste preparations, creams, ointments and gels that are helpful in keeping the skin protected from excessive moisture that can be a result of incontinence, wound drainage or perspiration are widely known as Moisture Barriers. For skin breakdown prevention, moisture barriers are often the final step in cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting genital and rectal regions.
