There are many studies in publication which show the skin benefits of no-rinse cleansers, such as TENA Wash Cream, in comparison to traditional soap-and-water cleansing products. University Hospitals Birmingham have been using TENA Wash Cream for some time, but found that usage was low and therefore the benefits of the product were not being experienced to their full potential. In 2014, a six-month study was undertaken by UHB with the aim of determining whether TENA Wash Cream, alongside targeted education surrounding skincare of incontinent individuals, would improve usage and ultimately improve the skin condition of incontinent patients.
The study resulted in a “significant reduction in incontinence associated moisture lesions across the trust”. The clinical areas included in the study demonstrated a fantastic 70–76.9% reduction in moisture lesion incidence, compared to an 8.3–13.6% reduction in the control groups.
The overall conclusion of the study was that the combination of proper education, alongside appropriate usage of TENA Wash Cream, has demonstrated significant patient benefit when it comes to skincare of incontinent individuals.
A full copy of the study, which has been published in the Journal of Wound Care’s May 2016 issue, can be found here.
The New TENA Wet Wash Glove combines the ease of use of a glove with the simplicity of a wet wipe enabling full body cleansing as part of the daily care routine. The glove benefits from an in-built no-rinse cleaning lotion for a caring full body wash, making it much easier than a washing routing using soap and water. This product is ideal for bed bound patients, or those with limited mobility. Using the TENA Wet Wash Glove helps reduce the workload for carer, as well as reducing physical strain.
TENA Wet Wash Glove comes with a high-quality skin-friendly cleansing formulation – free from parabens and dermatologically tested. They are mildly scented for a fresh and delicate smell. The small pack counts also help reduce the risk of contamination.
