SCA Launches of its Refreshed Line of TENA Skincare Cleansing, Washing and Protective Cream Products

SCA announced the launch of its refreshed line of TENA Skincare cleansing, washing and protective cream products. Featuring milder formulations, easy-to-identify packaging and design updates, the enhanced portfolio will help facility caregivers better address and maintain good skin health for elderly residents with vulnerable skin, particularly those suffering from incontinence. Due to its fragile nature, elderly skin faces increased vulnerability to a variety of threats, including skin ulcers, incontinence-associated dermatitis and infection, and greater potential for injury as healing slows down. In addition, frequent cleansing with soap and water can further disrupt skin's integrity and increase dryness. The TENA Skincare assortment has been re-designed to be more visually appealing and enable quick product recognition to help caregivers better address the individual skin needs of elderly patients, and customize a cleansing, moisturizing and protecting care regimen that is specific to their skin conditions. Product testing has shown that TENA(R) Cleansing Cream, which provides specialized preventative skin care for elderly residents, is over 5x more moisturizing than a no-rinse cleanser and 7x more moisturizing than soap and water. In addition, the TENA Skincare line has demonstrated significant improvements in skin conditions among elderly residents. In a separate case study conducted over a two month period, the use of the TENA Skincare system reduced the number of residents of a long-term care facility that exhibited skin conditions, compared with the use of soap and water. The TENA Skincare system comprises 21 individual products and is organized into three categories based on functionality: ‘Cleanse (no rinse),’ which includes TENA Cleansing Creams, and TENA UltraFlush, Ultra and Classic washcloths, ‘Cleanse (rinse off),’ which includes Body Wash and Shampoo, and ‘Protect,’ which includes Protective Cream. For simpler identification by caregivers, each category of products now features distinct color coding and easy-to-read labels and graphics, enabling easier product selection based on its intended use. Wider bottle bases and a sleek design provide greater structural stability and a more modern look and feel. New and improved formulations include greater conditioning qualities for added moisture and improved skin condition. For the elderly, the breakdown of skin can have considerable impact on an individual's physical and psychological wellbeing. By taking a total cost of care approach, which looks at the full spectrum of an individual's care demands including costs of labor, skin damage, toileting and other factors, facilities can make choices that are driven by a big picture view and that may ultimately lead to improved quality of life for residents, and cost efficiencies.
