SKIN-PREP is a liquid film-forming dressing that, upon application to intact skin, forms a protective film to help reduce friction during removal of tapes and films. SKIN-PREP can also be used to prepare skin attachment sites for drainage tubes, external catheters, surrounding ostomy sites and adhesive dressings.
-Helps tape and film adhesion.
-Fast and easy to use, only one coat is required, so less product is used per application.
-Removes easily using skin cleanser or soap and water, so unsanitary residue isn't left in or around the wound area.
-Applies easily, even on awkward areas such as elbows, knees, and heels. Moves naturally with patients' skin and won't crack or peel.
-Allows skin to "breathe" so tapes and films adhere better.
-May increase intervals between dressing changes.
