Comfort Clean & Shield Perineal Care Washcloths. These unique washcloths bundle 2 products together for convenient yet thorough cleansing, moisturizing, deodorizing, and barrier protection. Comfort Clean & Shield Perineal Care Washcloths contain exopheryl to help eliminate odors and 3% dimethicone and 6% microfine zinc oxide for effective, dual barrier protection. Because it has smaller particles than standard zinc barriers, microfine zinc oxide can be applied with greater ease and efficiency. Combined with dimethicone, this virtually transparent barrier makes future skin assessment easier without removal. The washcloths are premoistened and disposable, helping to reduce the potential for skin tears caused by abrasive scrubbing with reusable washcloths. They may be used at room temperature or warmed for increased patient comfort.
