The Science of Advanced Skin Protection

3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant has a formulation unlike any other skin protectant or moisture barrier currently available, allowing you to manage damaged skin or protect at-risk skin like never before. But what makes it so different from traditional skin protectants?

  • Unique, elastomeric polymer

    Unique, elastomeric polymer

    3M’s polymer forms a coating with the ability to elongate or conform, avoiding the cracking that can be common with other moisture barriers. This assures greater skin barrier integrity and durability and protection against challenging irritants, such as liquid stool and gastric fluids.

  • Revolutionary polymer-cyanoacrylate system

    Revolutionary polymer-cyanoacrylate system

    Unlike moisture barrier products that cannot reliably attach to underlying skin, 3M’s polymer-cyanoacrylate enables attachment to wet, weepy, damaged skin.¹ Once on the skin, 3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant creates an environment that repels irritants and supports patient healing and comfort.

  • Non-stinging solvent

    Non-stinging solvent

    The polymer-cyanoacrylate system is delivered onto the skin by a non-stinging solvent in a single-use applicator that reduces the potential for cross-contamination. Plus, 3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant doesn’t require removal, making wear easier for patients and easier for clinicians.
