No Sting Skin Barrier

Like an invisible layer of skin, this alcohol free liquid absorbed into a wipe creates a transparent protective film when applied. The film dries to form a synthetic barrier for protection from adhesives, friction, and body fluids while increasing the adhesion of tapes and wafers. Gentle, convenient, and scent-free.
