These sensitive skin products provide pain-free removal and are ideal for those with fragile skin.
3M has launched Nexcare Sensitive skin bandages, dressings and tapes designed to provide pain-free removal for those with sensitive skin and fragile wounds. The products are ideal for those who have fragile skin due to chronic illness; skin with lots of hair; skin prone to adverse reactions from adhesives or skin disorders such as eczema. The products are repositionable, hypoallergenic and latex-free.
The range includes:
• Skin bandages – These adhesives combine an absorbent, non-stick pad that wicks fluids away from the wound. It is ideal for daily use to protect wounds such as cuts, scraps and minor burns.
• Skin dressings (adhesive pads) – Also feature absorbent, non-stick pads that divert fluids from touching the wound. The water-resistant product exerts constant adhesive strength for as long as it is left in place.
• Skin tapes – Featuring water-resistant adhesive, these tapes are easy to use for securing dressings, post-surgical gauze applications, and even medical devices. It is ideal for elderly and those who require frequent dressing changes.
The bandages are S$5.90; skin dressings, S$7.20 and skin tapes, S$9.90. These Nexcare Sensitive Skin products are available at selected Guardian, Watsons and Unity outlets.
