Protecting peristomal skin is a complex process that is often taken for granted until damage occurs. Clinimed LBF Barrier Film Spray provides a protective barrier which dries rapidly on the skin, forming a breathable transparent film that protects skin from corrosive bodily fluids such as urine, faeces, digestive enzymes and sweat, which can cause skin to become red and sore. It is also great for sensitive skin as it helps to prevent the sticky adhesive on stoma pouches from causing irritation or damage during removal.
Clinimed LBF Barrier Film Spray contains a no sting healthcare-grade silicone fluid that forms a transparent film on the skin and that acts as a protective barrier against damage from bodily fluids and waste and skin stripping caused by repeated application and/or removal of adhesives. The film spray is sterile, alcohol free and is a no sting spray that has a skin friendly formulation. It is not manufactured with natural rubber latex, and is great for skin that is too sore to touch as you can spray from any angle.
Clinimed LBF Barrier Film Spray can be used for the protection of intact and injured skin that is at risk or likely to be compromised by corrosive bodily fluids (including urine and faeces) or adhesives. It can be used on both adults and children and provides an ideal surface for adhesion of stoma pouches.
• Please read the information leaflet before use
• Your skin should be clean and dry prior to application
• Hold the spray nozzle 10-15cm (4-6 inches) from the skin.
• Spray a uniform coating to the area of concern, and it should dry in seconds
• Allow the Clinimed LBF Barrier Film Spray to evaporate completely before covering. Once dried, it will not affect any adhesion of further appliances
• If the film spray 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 film can be removed by using most medical adhesive removers
