Regardless of the protection chosen, in a situation of incontinence, humidity prevails, and it is impossible to avoid contact with urine which is aggressive for the skin. It becomes interesting to protect the epidermis by a kind of non-greasy skin barrier. Thus, protecting the skin in prevention becomes effective and the disadvantages associated with the aggressor disappear since the latter can no longer penetrate the epidermis. However, we do not necessarily want to add fats that is impractical to apply and for some, unpleasant to wear. IrriProtect® was designed as a penetrating and non-greasy product. It does not stain or leave a print on the tissue.
IrriProtect is non-irritating to the skin and mucous membranes, non-allergic. It is biocompatible. This product is a medical device that does not contain an active ingredient in the pharmacological sense of the term. IrriProtect can be used on all skin types for the body. IrriProtect strengthens the skin’s resistance to chemical, physical and biological aggressions. And is usable on the entire body surface.
IrriProtect® installs an intraepidermal network using liquid crystals formed by Mhevozyx®. This network is a real double membrane around cells that delay or prevent the penetration of the attacking agents into the epidermis, the effects of which may ultimately contribute to permanent irritation or the formation of bedsores.
IrriProtect® can be used on injured but uninfected skin. The intra-epidermal network acts as a barrier against aggressors. It allows faster colonization of healthy cells on damaged cells. The skin can recover a healthy appearance more quickly. IrriProtect® reduces itching.
The essential component of IrriProtect, Mhevozyx®, once absorbed by the skin, forms a non-occlusive, non-film forming and non-greasy barrier. The vehicle’s properties drain within the epidermis the products it carries with it. These products, trapped in the stratum corneum layer, are gradually released. The physical conformation of this dermatological foam gives it the curative and preventive properties without chemical active ingredient. IrriProtect can be arranged in the long term without inconvenience.
