The skin is the body's largest organ and has multiple layers.
The layer acts as a vital barrier and keeps a wide range of harmful
substances and bacteria and allergens out.
Most soaps affect the skin's pH level, which for adults is
normally in the range 4.5 - 5.5. Soap can leave harmful residues on
the skin that can cause drying or degradation. Dry skin cracks
easily, and thus the aforementioned foreign bodies have easier
access to the organism, often leading to infection or eczema.
The skin's mild acidity is an effective antimicrobial barrier.
It therefore uses a strong acid mantle which helps protect the
BagBath preserves and protects the natural acid mantle and
contains no soap, perfume or alcohol, and in fact contains
relatively few ingredients, but these ingredients help restore the
BagBath cleans, restores and protects even the most delicate
skin and with its mild and unique ingredients is a perfect, gentle
product for sensitive skin.
BagBath contain vitamin E and vitamin B5 which acts as a
softener and humectant, which keeps moisture in the skin, which in
turn eliminates the need for extra lotion.
F68*, an FDA-approved surfactant, is used to reduce the surface
tension of water in order to be able to cleanse the skin gently.
F68 is a known skin and wound cleanser.
BagBath has been dermatologically tested at an institute in
Brazil (test report can be obtained).
story of the BagBath
Florence Nightingale (founder of modern, professional nursing)
recognised in her lifetime the importance of hygiene in fighting
the spread of infection. As a result of this she introduced a daily
"patient bathing procedure", which remained virtually unchanged for
over 150 years.
In 1994, nurse Susan M. Skewes, RN, developed a theory-based
alternative method to a bed bath and this was the beginning of what
we know today as BagBath®.
Since 1998 BagBath has been the most used bed bath system in
Danish hospitals for washing and grooming of immobile patients or
patients with special needs.
BagBath is one of the most thoroughly tested bed bath products
on the market and has had several years of studies.

on "advanced wound care" in 1988 that F68 is as gentle on tissue as
normal saline. ("F-68 has been identified to be as tissue-friendly
as normal saline").
