A guide to iD incontinence products

How do my iD products work?

 

iD products are designed to make you feel safe and secure, whilst being comfortable and discreet ensuring you can go on living your everyday life as normal. iD products are divided into multiple layers for ultimate absorbency. The top layer of the pad keeps you dry by quickly drawing the urine away from the skin through to a multi-absorbent core, which contains super absorbent polymers and is where the urine is absorbed and stored. The back layer is made from a waterproof cotton feel or plastic back material, preventing the urine passing through the pad.

 

How do I store my iD products?

 

The correct storage of your iD products is very important to ensure they work to their maximum potential.

  • Keep iD products in their packets
  • Store at room temperature
  • Do not store iD products in a bathroom
  • Do not store in a damp or cold environment (for example a shed)
  • Dispose of used iD products in a small bag or nappy sack in the normal household refuge
  • Do not flush your iD products down the toilet

 

How do I keep my skin healthy?

 

Skin problems are more likely to occur if you suffer from both urinary and faecal incontinence or if you have very loose stools. In order to maintain the integrity of your skin you should follow these
basic rules:

Always wear iD shaped products close to the skin by using iD fixation pants or close fitting underwear

  • Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water a day
  • Eat a healthy balanced diet
  • Wash your skin using a pH balanced soap, foam cleanser or cleansing wipes which contain
  • added moisturisers
  • Do not use talcum powder
  • Do not use creams unless prescribed by your doctor and then use them sparingly. Some creams can stop your iD product from absorbing properly.
  • Do not place a pad inside another pad, as this may cause skin irritation and will not increase
  • the absorbency
  • Do not rub skin dry as this can damage the top layer, instead pat gently
