Caring and convenient body cleansing

Personal hygiene care for dependent, bedridden, or immobile individuals is a challenging daily task.

While traditional basin bathing or sponge baths with soap and water seem to be an acceptable method for daily body cleansing, many soaps can be too aggressive for elderly skin, stripping away natural oils and causing dryness and irritation if not properly rinsed off.  Reusable wash basins can harbor harmful bacteria, increasing the risk for cross-contamination and infection.  Furthermore, the preparation of the basins, delivery of the soap and water basins to the bedside, and clean-up time for multiple residents each morning can be time-consuming and physically demanding. 

An innovative approach to address these types of risks and challenges is the TENA Wet Wash Glove, for caring and convenient body cleansing.  It brings together all the necessary materials – washcloth, body wash, and water – in one product, without the need for basins or extra towels.

  • Washcloth – two-sided glove design, soft for fragile skin
  • Body wash – mild cleansing formula with gentle ingredients
  • Water – pre-moistened, fresh and clean
