Moisture, pH, and temperature make up the microclimate of the skin. Microclimate conditions play a vital role in skin health, especially for older adults or persons with incontinence. Maintaining proper moisture levels enhances the skin’s barrier function and promotes skin integrity.

This white paper, sponsored by Essity, discusses the components of the skin’s microclimate and the need for appropriate moisture balance to avoid skin maceration and breakdown. This guide also describes products that can help health care professionals protect their patients’ skin and prevent moisture-associated skin damage and other related conditions.

Wound care professionals, especially those working in long-term care facilities, will find this information useful.

This white paper contains information on the following topics:

Elements of the skin microclimate
Moisture balance and skin health
Roles of pH and temperature in moisture balance
Moisture-associated skin damage
Incontinence-associated dermatitis
