Wash without water

The products in ABENA's green series are a good alternative to regular washing with soap and water because they do not need to be rinsed off. They make it easy to maintain a high standard of hygiene and are perfect for bedridden patients and people with thin and sensitive skin.

Why choose a product that does not need to be rinsed off?

No-rinse products are convenient and effective to use when helping patients and residents who are bedridden, incontinent at risk of developing IAD (incontinence-associated dermatitis) or have sensitive skin, with their personal hygiene. You also avoid getting the bedclothes wet, which easily happens with a bed bath with soap and water.
