Taking care of elderly loved ones is never an easy task. It is something loaded with emotions and love, as well as an enhanced sense of responsibility and often, humility. One of the most difficult things in adult care and using wet wipes, is that they are usually associated with baby care. For an elderly person who loses the ability to care for him or herself there is nothing harder than loss of self-esteem.
This is why it’s crucial that the wet wipes available for the adult care market are not only top notch in quality but also completely adjusted to the body of an older person. Adult care wet wipes should offer impeccable cleaning ability while ensuring freshness and asserting confidence.
For us at Wetnaps, key factors when manufacturing adult wipes are:
- Safety – the materials we use are hypoallergenic and match the sensitive elderly skin and specific delicate conditions.
- Size & Thickness – wet wipes created for adult users are larger and more thick than regular wipes to allow more efficient cleaning or large areas fast.
- Added agents – Adult care wipes are often enriched with moisturizing and soothing agents to help in cases of irritated skin. There are new formulas containing agents that are specifically designed to coat the skin with a protective layer against fluid and dirt and also aid in protecting against pressure wounds.
- Scent – in bed-bound adults repeated and constant exposure to urine and feces contribute to unpleasant odors, risk of inflammation and loss of confidence.
All in all, just like with any other age group or condition, using wet wipes is supposed to make things easier, faster and allow care on the go. Also just like with any other age group or condition, it is crucial that manufacturing wet wipes is done with the utmost care to details, quality, cutting edge technologies and substances, to ensure superior products.
