3M reintroduces Cavilon line
ST. PAUL, Minn. 3M Skin and Wound Care has announced the relaunch of the 3M Cavilon professional skin care line, a range of products to help prevent skin damage from moisture, friction and adhesive trauma, following research and surveys of caregivers and clinicians.

It also offers barrier properties to help protect against moisture. Furthermore, 3M will be adding enhanced product formulations, sizes and new patient-friendly delivery systems to the Cavilon line in 2011.
"We have long been a trusted name among clinicians," stated Marcello Napol, global business director of 3M Skin and Wound Care. "As a company grounded in research and innovation, we understand the demands on healthcare professionals today. Making sure that we help caregivers quickly reach for the right product for the right situation is an important part in being a trusted partner."
