Ilex is formulated to be gentle and soothing to the skin and creates an environment that helps prevent infection and maximizes healing.

How To Use Ilex Skin Protectant Paste?

Ilex Protectant Paste General Instructions For Use

  • Gently clean the wound as normal.
  • Water and cotton wool balls or soft cloth can be used.
  • Do not use baby wipes. A mild soap or cleansing foam can be used.
  • Apply any other treatment if required (such as antifungal or antibacterial powder/cream).
  • Apply a thin coating of Ilex over the entire wound needing protection. You should still be able to see through the layer of Ilex to the skin below.
  • Allow to dry for about 30 seconds. In areas where the Ilex may stick to clothing or other material apply a good coating of petroleum jelly over the Ilex and surrounding skin.
  • Note: A coating of petroleum jelly (such as Vaseline) should be applied over Ilex when used in the perianal area to prevent the bottom and/or diaper from sticking.
  • Do not forcibly try to remove Ilex that has adhered to the skin.
  • When cleansing, only the stool should be wiped off using cotton wool or soft cloth and water leaving the Ilex intact. You may reapply additional Ilex if required, then reapply petroleum jelly.
  • This procedure will minimize any trauma to the already broken skin. Ilex should only be removed once a day – to remove use a soft cloth with a good amount of mineral oil/ baby oil.
  • Note: Removing Ilex more often or without the use of mineral oil/baby oil may inhibit the healing process and lead to further skin breakdown.

How to use Ilex Protective Cream for - G-tubes, Faecal fistula, Wound Exudate?

  • Clean the surrounding area as directed by the Health Care Professional or protocol.
  • Apply prescribed medication to the wound if required.
  • Apply a layer of ilex over the area, followed by a coating of petroleum jelly (such as Vaseline).
  • Apply secondary dressing.
  • To remove ilex paste (maximum once a day) use a soft cloth and mineral oil/baby oil or water and a mild soap.

How to use Ilex Protective Cream for Ostomy Care?

  • Clean the peristomal skin as directed by the Stoma Care nurse or protocol.
  • Apply a light layer of ilex around the perimeter of the stoma and irritated area.
  • Cut the appliance aperture/ template to the outside edge of the ilex.
  • Ilex will provide an occlusive barrier so will protect the area of clearance between the stoma and the appliance wafer, thus preventing the digestive enzymes to come in contact with the skin.
  • If ilex needs to be used beyond the perimeter of the stoma an adhesive spray should be applied over the ilex to assist with the adherence of the appliance.
  • Reapply a layer of ilex at each appliance change. Do not forcibly attempt to remove any remaining residue of ilex on the excoriated area.
  • This residue should be left in place so as not to damage the skin. When wanting to completely remove ilex use a soft cloth and mineral oil/ baby oil.


  • If any signs of irritation or redness appear or persist please consult your healthcare professional


  • Hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients


  • Ilex by its nature adheres well to moist tissue and forms an effective barrier
  • To protect delicate skin we recommend a layer of petroleum jelly (such as Vaseline) over the top of the ilex to prevent the outer surface sticking to clothing or other material
  • To avoid skin damage when removing ilex, Mineral or baby oil can be used
