How to use Skin-Prep Protective Barrier Wipes or Spray?

How to apply Skin Prep Liquid Film Forming Protective Barrier?

  1. The skin should be clean and dry prior to the application of Skin Prep.
  2. Apply a uniform coating over the entire area you wish to protect, i.e., around the stoma, underdressing, catheter site, etc.
  3. Skin Prep will dry in approximately 30 seconds. If you miss an area you intended to cover, wait until the original area of application has dried, then reapply to the missed area.
  4. For maximum protection, an optional second coating of Skin Prep protectants may be applied and allowed to dry before covering the area with dressing or other adhesive product.
  5. If Skin Prep is applied to an area with skin folds or other skin-to-skin contact, make sure that skin contact areas are separated to allow the coating to thoroughly dry before returning to normal position.

How to remove Skin-Prep wipe Protectants?

  1. The removal of adhesive products may also remove Skin Prep. Reapplication is necessary any time that adhesive products are changed.
  2. Removal of Skin Prep is not necessary before reapplication. Clean and dry the area and apply fresh Skin Prep Wipes or Spray as directed above.
