Cavilon Advanced Skin Protection is revolutionizing experiences and outcomes. 3M chemists partnered with leading clinicians and IAD experts to develop Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant. The results of clinical studies in two nursing care facilities speak for themselves:
- 96% - the median percent improvement in IAD severity score

Moisture related skin breakdown has been called many - perineal dermatitis, irritant dermatitis, contact dermatitis, heat rash, and anything else caregivers could think of to describe damage occurring when moisture from urine or stool is left on the skin. At a 2005 consensus conference, attendees chose the term incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD).
IAD can be painful, hard to properly identify, complicated to treat, and costly. It’s part of a larger group of moisture associated skin damage that also includes intertrigo and periwound maceration. IAD prevalence and incidence vary widely with the care setting and study design. Appropriate diagnosis, prompt treatment, and management of the irritant source are crucial to long-term treatment.
The three essentials of IAD prevention are to cleans, moisturize, and protect the skin.
