      What is Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis (IAD)?

      Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis, also known as IAD, is inflammation or damage that can occur to the skin in and around the genital area as the result of contact with urine or stool. 1 Skin damage from IAD happens from the surface and works inward and is also a major risk factor for the development of pressure ulcers.2

      What causes IAD?

      There are several risk factors for IAD including: 1
      • Fecal incontinence
      • Frequency of incontinence
      • Poor skin condition
      • Pain
      • Poor skin oxygenation
      • Fever
      • Compromised or limited mobility
      • Double (urinary and fecal) incontinence
      • Tissue tolerance impairments
      • Moisture
      • Alkaline pH

      How can I prevent and treat IAD?

      Professional guidelines recommend using a barrier product to help protect skin from injury due to incontinence.3 However, the multiple steps associated with traditional methods of incontinence care often means barrier application is overlooked.4

      Comfort Shield is designed to help prevent painful redness, irritation, and skin breakdown due to incontinence moisture by applying our signature 3% dimethicone cream barrier. Comfort Shield also treats and protects irritated skin. There's no need for other wipes, creams, lotions, or protectants, Comfort Shield does it all without leaving behind a filmy residue or hard to remove caked-on cream. Each thick, ultra-soft cloth is soaked in rinse-free cleansers, moisturizers, and, Exopheryl. Exopheryl is an exclusive ingredient that helps to eliminate odors, leaving you with a breathable barrier that seals out incontinence moisture for the ultimate in prevention.

      Comfort Shield's clear, protective barrier treats skin and helps seal out wetness, relieving the skin irritation that often accompanies incontinence. Our powerful, long-lasting dimethicone barrier is in each cloth, so you can be confident it goes on every time. It's proven hypoallergenic, gentle and non-irritating. Comfort Shield has also been proven to help treat IAD. 5

      Don't Catch the Basin Bug

      If you've spent the night in the hospital, you've probably received an unassuming pale pink, yellow, or blue bath basin. What you may not know about these basins is that they can easily become contaminated with bacteria and can lead to infection.

      Prepackaged bathing helps eliminate the basin and its associated contamination risks. In fact, 95% of hospital nurses surveyed agreed that prepackaged bathing is a cleaner and potentially safer method than basin bathing 6. A separate survey found that 86% of infection control professionals recognize that the bath basin is a potential safety risk6. One published medical study took samples from 1,103 basins in 88 hospitals and found that 100% of the participating hospitals had basins that tested positive for bacteria.7 Here are some of the bacteria they found:

      • Staphylococcus, the bacteria associated with Staph infections
      • VRE, a bacteria resistant to several antibiotics
      • MRSA, also known as the "superbug"8

      Contact with these bacteria can lead to serious infections. Comfort and Essential Bath� washcloths eliminate the contamination risk by eliminating the need for basins. Each package provides high quality, pre-moistened cloths. Now you can bathe in the comfort of your own home.

      sage products

      • Good quality
      • very expensive
      <p>My mother is 99 years old. She was at the hospital in March for two weeks. I learned from the hospital this product. After she was released from the hospital I bought them. Excellent product. No irritation in her skin and very soft with the cream. I recommended.</p>


      <p>The incontinence wipes are the same as the ones used at my son's hospital. They help to eliminate his diaper rash from continual antibiotics.</p>

      Comfort Shield Barrier Cream Cloths

      <p>I have used this product for over a year to control irritation and rash from leaking urine. It works great.</p>

      Great Barrier Cloths

      • Soft
      • large
      • helps heal and protects
      <p>All others does not compare to the quality of Sage Comfort Shields Barrier Cloths. We received these in the hospital. I cut them in smaller stripes, when my husband was still able to walk to the facilities, because they were so good. He is now bed bound. Others wipes are not as large, or soft, and they cause irritation. </p><p>I was glad I found the Sage Comfort Shield Barrier Cream Cloths on line with the manufacturer. The price is cheeper too. Shipping is free with a good order. His irritation has healed after using Sage Comfort Shields Barrier Cream Cloths again.</p><p>Thank you Sage for such a good product, and for making them large enough and soft it get the job done. In the end this saves money too. And the addition of dimethicone causes the cloth to glide over the skin, which protects the skins from tearing and heals and protects the skin. Note Sage products are called cloths and not wipes. There is a definite difference in their cloths and others wipes. Thank you again for making them available to the general public to purchase.</p>


      Soothing and healing

      <p>Not meaning to overshare, but I have chronic GI tract issues which sometimes result in soreness and chafing. Use of the Sage cloths help to relieve the pain while expediting healing. They are an excellent product.</p><p>I also need to comment about the company's customer service excellence. FedEx supposedly left my package on the front porch, but I never received it. I contacted the company, and the problem was swiftly resolved. In a world where "customer service" has almost become an anachronism, it is wonderful to find a company so willing to assist its customers.</p>


      <p>We have used this product before and love it. We use it to attend to my elderly mother's healthcare needs and it is a great product.</p>
