Protecting peristomal skin is a complicated process that is often taken for granted until damage occurs. Clinimed LBF Barrier Cream moisturises the skin whilst providing a protective barrier against the harmful effects of bodily fluids such as urine, faeces, digestive enzymes and excessive perspiration, which can cause skin to become red, sore and sometimes damaged. It is also ideal for sensitive skin as it helps to prevent the sticky adhesive on stoma pouches from causing skin irritation or trauma during removal.
The balanced consistency of Clinimed LBF Barrier Cream means that it is not too thick or thin, whilst the high concentration allows a small amount to go further – being easy to apply and spread effortlessly. Once absorbed into the skin, a non-greasy breathable layer is left behind. The cream has a long lasting waterproof protection, is non-greasy and pH balanced, and is also made of a skin friendly formulation. It is not manufactured with natural rubber latex.
Clinimed LBF Barrier Cream is indicated for the protection of intact skin that is at risk or likely to be compromised by corrosive bodily fluids (including urine and faeces) or adhesives. The product may be used on adults and on children.
• Please read the information leaflet before use
• Your skin should be clean and dry prior to application
• Apply Clinimed LBF Barrier Cream sparingly around the intended area as required and allow to dry before covering. Once dried, it will not affect any adhesion of further appliances
• If the barrier cream is applied to an area with skin folds or other skin-to-skin contact, make sure that skin-contact areas are separated to allow them to dry before returning to normal position
• When used under stoma pouches, adhesive tapes or dressings, reapplication is necessary with every change of adhesive appliance as the barrier is removed by the adhesive
• When used as a protectant against corrosive bodily fluids (including urine and faeces) and no adhesive products are applied to the skin, reapplication is recommended every 24-48 hours, depending on the frequency of cleaning. In extreme cases (e.g. constant diarrhoeal stooling) with very frequent cleansing, more frequent applications may be necessary (i.e. every 12-24 hours)
• If desired, the cream can be removed by using most medical adhesive removers
