Since 1996 BagBath® has been the most utiliized system for bathing and cleaning of immobile patients and patients with special needs. BagBath® is used when daily washing or cleaning of the patient is not possible due to immobility of the patient. BagBath® is used in Acute Care, Long Term Care and Homecare evironments.
The BagBath® system consits of a re-sealable package with eight (8) washing cloths that contains the most skinfriendly washing ingredients known to day. The package can be heated or cooled depending on the patients needs. After each use the cloths are disposed of, which means the bath will be both easy and hygenic.
Most soaps effect to the pH of the skin, normal adults levels are between 4.5 og 5.5. This pH is an effective antimicrobial barrier. Also when we get older, our skin has a considerable reduction in lipids, our skin is at rick to dryness, scaling and eczema. BagBath® does not remove this portective layer call acid Mantle. It is estimated that59% to 75% of ealderly persons have a pre-existing scaling /pruritic skin conditions (Eliopoulos, 1988; Franz & Kinney, 1986; Parnet 1985; Tinadall & Smith, 1963).
Research has also shown that the combination between dryness and scaling of the skin
and the incidense of development of pressure ulcers. (Guralnik, Harris, White, et al, 1988).*
BagBath® does not remove the acid Mantle on the skin.
The ingredients in BagBath® are very unique with features that renew the skins strenght.

These results together with other studies showed that F-68 was a totally bio compatibal surfactant , and is safe and without risk to use on human skin, and by that used as skin cleanser in Bag Bath®.In stead of using soap, the skin can be as effective cleaned with the use of surfactants.
(Surface Actiove Agent) A "surfactant" is an active ingredient that is used as a surface active agent to reduce the surface tenison on water, that means that the water is spread and by that helps to clean the skin area. Also mild surfactants take away contamina from ther skin whitout breaking down the Acid Mantle of the skin as you see it when soap is used. Based on research done by George Rodeheaver, Ph.D., Director of Plastic Surgery Research at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, thesurfactantF-68was choosen as the primary skin cleaner in Bag Bath®. Dr. Rodeheaver, published at symposia on advanced wound care in 1988, that: ”F-68 has been identified to be as tissue-friendly as normal saline”.
