3M Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant is a polymeric-cyanoacrylate solution intended for the protection of intact or damaged skin. Upon application to skin, the liquid dries rapidly to form a primary long-lasting waterproof, highly durable film barrier. It is elastomeric, adhering to the contours of the skin and providing a uniform film. This skin protectant helps in reducing IAD (Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis) under urinary and fecal incontinence. The film adheres to dry, moist or wet skin surfaces and remains intact during conditions of continuous or repeated exposure to moisture or caustic irritants. It will wear off the skin and does not require removal.

What to buy with 3M Cavilon Skin Protectant

How to use Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant 2.7mL Applicator?

  • Cleanse skin before applying skin protectant. Gently dry areas of intact skin as needed. If areas of erosion (denudement) are present, excess serous or sero-sanguinous drainage may be blotted with a gauze pad if necessary.
  • Open package and grasp applicator. Place thumb at the end of the lever. Aim the sponge end of the applicator downward and firmly depress the lever to break the internal ampule. A snapping or popping noise will be noted as the ampule breaks. It is not necessary to continue to press the lever.
  • Keep the applicator pointed in a downward position for approximately 10 seconds to allow fluid to flow into the foam sponge; continued pressure on the lever is not required.
    Note - fluid will not completely saturate the sponge to the edges.
  • Using an even, sweeping motion, gently wipe the foam sponge across the skin with minimal overlap. Firm pressure and/or downward pressure on the lever or the applicator is not needed and may result in excessive wetness or pooling of fluid. Continue application until the entire area of concern has been covered. The applicator may be used in any direction.
  • Apply the product to all skin that is exposed to stool and/or urine, or irritating body fluid. Allow the area to dry for at least 30 seconds.
  • If an area is missed, wait until the fluid has dried completely before applying additional product.
  • If skin protectnt barrier is applied within a skin fold or other area of skin-to-skin contact, make sure that the skin surfaces are separated to allow the fluid to dry completely (at least 30 seconds) before allowing skin to return to the normal position.
  • When used under adhesive tapes, dressings, or devices, allow the product to dry for approximately 1 minute before covering with adhesive products.
  • Cleanse affected area as needed. This protectant barrier is waterproof and is not removed by cleansing.
  • Reapply two to three times per week. More frequent application may result in buildup of the product
  • The film will wear off the skin and does not require removal. If removal is desired, the film should be removed with an adhesive remover containing hexamethyldisiloxane (HMDS).
  • Use an adhesive remover containing HMDS to remove an adhesive product that has been placed over the film. This is especially important for patients with fragile skin.

Precautions to take while using Cavilon Skin Protectant

  • Skin absorption and the effectiveness of topical medications (including: antimicrobials, antifungals, and analgesics) may be reduced or prevented by the presence of the Cavilon Protectant.
  • Use of other barrier products, ointments, creams or lotions may significantly reduce the effectiveness of the product.
  • The product can increase the adhesion of some adhesive products (e.g. tape), particularly in the first few days of use. When removing an adhesive product, it is important to exercise care and follow the Directions for Use.
