A clinical study of Oasis Bed Bath Wipes has shown they deliver a 17% increase in skin moisturisation.

 
A clinical study of the moisturising effect of Oasis® Bed Bath Wipes has shown that the product provides a 17% increase in the level of skin moistness after a single application, with improved skin hydration effects remaining over a 24 hour period.
 
The Oasis® Bed Bath Wipes, manufactured in the UK by Synergy Health, are pre-impregnated with skin cleansers and moisturisers.  They are designed to provide a quicker, more convenient alternative to traditional soap and water bed bathing, that is kinder to the skin.
 
The laboratory study measured the change in skin hydration over a 24-hour period after a single-use of perfumed Oasis® bed bathing wipes.  After 30 mnutes there was a 17.2% average increase in the level of skin moisture, and moisturisation benefits lasted for a full 24 hours.
 
Joanne Hardwick, Managing Director, Patient Hygiene, Synergy Health, said: "The clinical study proves the long lasting moisturising capability of Oasis® wipes, with hydration benefits remaining even after 24 hours.  This makes it an attractive alternative to washing the skin with soap and water, which can increase the risk of skin becoming dry and cracked - leading to increased risk of infection and skin tears.  Ageing skin is more susceptible to skin tears, so the advantages of Oasis® in providing improved levels of skin hydration, is especially significant in care of older patients."
 
The Oasis® Bed Bath System includes wipes and washmitts, which can be warmed or used at room temperature.  The product gently cleanses, moisturises and nourishes the skin to maintain softness, providing a quicker, more comfortable and dignified bed bath experience for immobile patients.  It prevents cross infection because fresh wipes are used for different parts of the body and there is no possibility of washing with 'dirty water' or using a single cloth to clean all parts of the body.
