    Smith and Nephew Skin Prep from HealthyKin.com forms a barrier between the patient's skin and adhesives to help preserve skin integrity and prevent insult or injury during removal of tapes and films.

    Smith and Nephew Skin Prep Features:

    • A series of tests under a scanning electron microscope suggest that Skin-Prep provides effective protection against adhesive trauma
    • Allows skin to "breathe" so tapes and films adhere better and longer
    • Enhanced adhesion increases the interval between dressing changes to save nursing time
    • Less frequent application and removal of adhesive dressings reduces the risk of damage to delicate skin
    • Contains Citroflex for added safety and reliable protection with virtually no irritation or allergic reactions
    • Safe for long-term use, especially on sensitive skin areas in ostomates and geriatric patients
    • Helps prevent contact dermatitis and makes adhesive removal less painful for patients
    • Single-use, individually packaged Skin-Prep wipes are more than adequate to provide even more barrier formula where skin needs protection most
    • Available in an easy to use spray can
    • Skin-Prep can be removed with a skin cleanser and water, so there is no need to scrub the skin or expose it to harsh chemical cleansers or solvents that can cause irritation

      Great product to help with removing tape for sensative skin. Put on before the tape is applied. It does help with keeping the skin less irritated.

      I have used the product for some time and it protects the skin where tape is applied to the bandages holding my dialysis cath in place. Found the site a time and money saver. Was able to order several boxes at one time.

      I have dialysis 3 times a week. Removing the tape on the pressure sites the day after was extremely painful until I started using this product. No more tearing of my skin and seems to condition my skin at the same time. Excellent product. Highly recommend it!

      I think this is one of the best products that Smith and Nephew has come out with. It protects your skin and allows bandages to adhere to wounds without irritation from the adhesive or medications. I absolutely LOVE this product. Debbie Aliano

      Very good product that lets my back bandage stick to it and does not pull my skin off when changing the bandage. Seemed like it was delivered to my door before I even finished the order, very fast delivery.
