Because every skin has its own story – the TENA Skincare range

We now offer a total care approach for elderly residents where procedures and products are tailored specifically to fit the needs of elderly skin through our TENA Skincare range.

The TENA Skincare range is built on years of experience in providing quality incontinence products. It is also the result of working closely with care facility managers and caregivers. Preventative personal skincare can help minimize the risk of incontinence-related skin breakdown while benefitting the working environment for your staff. 

To deliver this, the range is broadly divided into four complementary categories that can be tailored to meet the unique needs of your residents. 

Ultimately, we believe these innovative products work together to help transform skincare for vulnerable elderly residents and contribute to their overall health and well-being.

Fragile, elderly skin deserves special care

Frequent cleansing with soap and water, along with incontinence, can disrupt the skin’s integrity, reducing its ability to prevent infection. Furthermore, the breakdown of skin arising from incontinence can have a considerable impact on an individual’s physical and psychological well-being. [3]

An optimal skin care regime after episodes of incontinence helps to prevent incontinence-associated dermatitis. It should include gentle cleansing, moisturizing and the use of a skin barrier or protectant if necessary. [3]

No-rinse cleansers are considered the best practice because they are beneficial to elderly skin. [4]

The evidence for TENA Skincare

Trials were carried out using TENA Skincare products in long-term care homes with promising results. [5,6]

TENA Skincare improved skin conditions for a significant number of residents. Two-thirds of the elderly residents benefited from improvements in their skin condition when they used the TENA Skincare system vs. soap & water. [1]

High level of moisturization and cleansing. [5,6] TENA Wash Cream provides over 5x more moisturization than a leading no-rinse cleanser* and 7x more than soap and water. [5] In addition to a greater level of moisturization, TENA no-rinse cleansing provides the equivalent amount of cleansing as soap and water. [6]
