3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant is a polymer-cyanoacrylate-based waterproof skin protectant that forms a barrier film designed to help prevent or manage moderate to severe Moisture-Associated Skin Damage (MASD). The ultra-thin, yet highly durable barrier can attach to wet, weepy skin and create a protective environment that repels irritants and supports healing.

3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant

Experience the power of ultimate protection.

Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant is different than traditional skin protectant ointments, even under the most challenging conditions. Use this revolutionary skin protectant to stop, reverse — and even prevent — IAD.*

With a long-lasting barrier that protects the skin for up to 7 days, Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant is also breathable, allowing for moisture-vapor transmission that helps keep skin comfortable. Plus, it does not require removal, and the surface is easily cleansed, making wear easier for patients and care easier for staff.

Prescription only. See instructions for use for more information.

*The protective barrier creates a favourable environment for healing.

    Offering superior skin management value for your facility, Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant can help eliminate the need for frequent reapplication, reduce the potential for cross-contamination and lead to improved patient and resident outcomes.

Cavilon Advanced Skin Protectant consists of a cyanoacrylate system that includes a sting-free, alcohol-free solvent in a single-use applicator to reduce the potential for cross-contamination. It is available in two sizes: the original 2.7ml with a coverage area of 100 square inches and a smaller 0.7ml single-use applicator with a coverage area of 25 square inches. The original applicator is ideal for IAD and the smaller applicator is ideal for application on small areas of the body, such as around ostomies and tubes and on wounds.
