FDA Bans Antimicrobial Soaps – What Does It Mean For You?

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) published a final ruling last week regarding Consumer Antiseptic (antimicrobial)Washes. As a manufacturer of antiseptic hand and body washes, DermaRite would like to address this ruling and assure you that you can continue to use any of our hand and body washes as usual.

The FDA presented a Proposed Rule on Consumer Antiseptic (Antimicrobial) Washes in December of 2013. Following several years of research and consultation with manufacturers and industry leaders, the FDA has concluded that “there isn’t enough science to show that over-the-counter (OTC) antibacterial soaps are better at preventing illness than washing with plain soap and water. To date, the benefits of using antibacterial hand soap haven’t been proven. In addition, the wide use of these products over a long time has raised the question of potential negative effects on your health.”[1]

As a result, the FDA is banning the use of 19 active ingredients commonly used as antibacterial agents in consumer hand and body washes that are used with water. Manufacturers have one year to remove these ingredients from their products.


  • This final ruleapplies to consumer antiseptic wash products containing one or more of 19 specific active ingredients, including the most commonly used ingredients – triclosan and triclocarban. These products are intended for use with water, and are rinsed off after use.
  • This rule does not affectconsumer hand sanitizers or wipes intended to be used without water.
  • This rule does not affect antibacterial products used inhealth care settings.[2]
  • DermaRite hand and body washes do not contain the active ingredients banned by the FDA.

Hygiene. Cleaning Hands. Washing hands.

  • If you are a DermaRite customer, you can continue to use any of our hand and body washes as usual as they do not contain the active ingredients banned by the FDA.
  • Furthermore, if you are using handwashes in a healthcare setting, continue to follow accepted guidelines for hand hygiene, as the FDA’s ruling only applies to consumer hand and body washes.
  • Hand sanitizers are also not included in the FDA’s final ruling and can be used as usual for the time being.
  • In consumer settings, the FDA currently recommends practicing good hygiene by using plain soap and water.

Hand hygiene is one of the most important and most effective ways to reduce the spread of infectious diseases. It is important that healthcare facility staff maintain the highest standards for hand hygiene in order  to protect the health and safety of those under their care.

DermaRite offers a full line of hand hygiene products, including alcohol-based and non-alcohol hand sanitizers, and a wide range of hand and body washes. These products are FDA approved. This wide variety of products ensures that your facility can find the products that fit your individual needs.

For the latest guidelines and information regarding proper hand hygiene, you can visit the Center for Disease Control’s website at www.cdc.gov/handhygiene.

Managing Pain with Dressing Changes

F-Tag 309 is a government regulation that deals with pain stating: “Each resident must receive and the facility must provide the necessary care and services to attain or maintain the highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being, in accordance with the comprehensive assessment and plan of care”.  (1)

How does this relate to wound pain?  Pain related to wounds can be a result of day-to-day activities or dressing changes and wound procedures such as debridement.  The presence of a wound may stimulate pain pathways and increase transmission of pain impulses, resulting in wound pain. (3)    For some people, dressing changes can be times of extreme pain;   a 2004 French study noted that pain was experienced by 87% of patients during the dressing removal process.  (4)   Techniques to reduce, prevent and manage pain are necessary to maintain the highest physical, mental and psychosocial well- being of the patient.  Strategies for pain management begin with:

  • recognizing and predicting the instances of pain and when it is likely to occur
  • proper evaluation of existing pain
  • implementing treatments and techniques to manage and prevent pain (2)

Managing wound pain includes an assessment rating the intensity, quality, and location of pain.  In addition, non-verbal cues such as facial grimacing, guarding the area, restricted movement, noting if the pain radiates to other areas and factors that may aggravate or relieve pain are critical to a complete pain assessment.  The nonverbal resident presents additional challenges in pain assessment, so include input from primary caregivers related to previous wound pain when needed.   Residents that have experienced wound pain previously with dressing changes may anticipate pain and become tense and anxious, resulting in more pain at dressing change.  (3)  Treatment interventions to minimize dressing change pain include:

  • Explaining prior to the dressing change, what can be expected, and the interventions that will be used to minimize pain.
  • Using music, deep breathing techniques and relaxation exercises to reduce anxiety prior to dressing changes.
  • Utilizing products such as skin prep before applying adhesive dressings and practicing gentle techniques to avoid trauma when removing adhesive dressings and tape.
  • Avoid using plain gauze dressings, which are known to cause pain due to adherence of the dressing to the wound bed.
  • Administering prescribed medications for pain control then allowing adequate time for the medications to be effective before beginning dressing changes.
  • Selecting a dressing that suits the drainage level of the wound: hydrogels, alginates, or silicone dressings can  promote moisture balance,  minimize adherence and adhesive related skin stripping, which can decrease the occurrence of pain during dressing changes. (3)

DermaRite’s ComfortFoam self-adherent silicone foam wound dressings minimize the wound trauma and pain associated with dressing changes.  ComfortFoam Border and ComfortFoam Border Lite dressings include an adhesive border for superior adhesion and gentle removal.  ComfiTel is a silicone contact layer wound dressing that permits wound exudate to pass through to a secondary absorptive dressing, protecting the wound bed from trauma while providing comfort.  The ComfortFoam line of silicone products support moist wound healing and provide protection to fragile periwound tissue.  The foam dressings absorb exudate and insulate the wound bed.  ComfortFoam dressings and ComfiTel are not made with natural rubber latex.  ComfortFoam and ComfiTel should be part of your solution to reduce painful dressing changes for your residents.

Impact of Dehydration on Wound Healing

What is the role of water?
Water plays a vital role in our overall health and may be the most important nutrient of life. Roughly two-thirds of our body is comprised of water. Since the body is not capable of storing water, daily replacement of lost fluids is needed for cellular functions such as delivering nutrients and oxygen to the cells, removing waste products and toxins, lubricating joints, protecting the central nervous system, retaining acid base balance and maintaining adequate tissue temperature. (3) Sufficient oral intake of water is vital to these functions.  

What is one of the most common, unrecognized obstacles impacting successful wound healing?
If you answered dehydration you would be correct. More than 1/3 of America’s seniors do not consume enough water. (8) The human body can survive for weeks without food but will only exist a few days without water.   Simply, dehydration occurs when more water (fluid volume) is lost than is replaced. (6)   Dehydrated skin is known to be more fragile, less elastic and susceptible to wound occurrence. (2)

How are seniors affected?
Water intake in the senior population can be impacted by decreased sensation of thirst, fear of incontinence,   diminishing cognitive skills,   or physical limitations that inhibit their ability to pour and drink water, even when placed nearby.  Also, disease processes, medications, heavily draining wounds, illness involving fever, vomiting or diarrhea or decreased kidney function can negatively impact hydration in the this population. (5) Additionally, highly specialized air fluidized therapy beds used for persons with serious wounds or surgical repairs may increase the evaporation of body fluids requiring additional fluid intake. (7)  Drops in fluid volume of 1-2 % can trigger fatigue, while drops of 10% or more may severely impact all areas of health. (7)   The ability to heal wounds suffers because of decreased oxygenation, cellular communication, or electrolyte functions that negatively impact the ability of the wound to progress through the stages of wound healing. (1)

How can we help?
We can’t ignore the impact of diminished thirst in the aging population. Thirst is the mechanism to tell us our body is in need of fluid. (6) Unfortunately, the body can be 1 or 2 percent dehydrated before the thirst mechanism becomes active. The average water requirement for an adult is about 1,500 ml daily or eight 8 ounce glasses. More accurately, fluid needs should be based on weight; adults should consume 30 ml/kg of fluids per day. (2) Keep in mind that some fluids hydrate better than others, for example, those containing caffeine may have a diuretic effect. (7)  Some simple hydration tips include:

  • Keep drinks accessible
  • Provide straws or easy to remove capped lids
  • Offer assistance frequently when needed
  • Encourage consumption of water packed foods, such as jello, soup, fruit
  • Note personal preferences, ice or no ice, types of liquids, and flavors to encourage intake
  • Offer meals at preferred eating times
  • Encourage fruits and vegetables;   they are an important food source for hydration.

When using air fluidized beds, mitigate the risk of dehydration by consulting with the bed provider for training and support.

Optimize topical wound care
Keep dry wound beds hydrated with products that provide additional moisture, such as DermaRite’s DermaSyn products. DermaSyn Gel, DermaSyn Ag and DermaGauze are excellent options for meeting the needs of dry wound beds. DermaSyn and DermaSyn Gauze are water based gel formulas, enriched with vitamin E to donate moisture to a dry or minimally draining wound bed. DermaSyn Ag contains ionic silver to minimize microorganism growth. DermaSyn products promote an optimal moist wound environment, facilitate autolytic debridement and support new tissue development.

Obesity and Wound Healing

Obesity is a national health concern impacting over 35% of our adult population above the age of 60.1 Obesity can be directly related to heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and some cancers, but did you know that obesity also affects our ability to heal wounds?3

Several things occur as we gain weight. First, the demands on the circulatory system are stressed due to the increased amount of adipose (fat) tissue. The vascular system becomes overwhelmed and can’t supply the required oxygen and nutrients,   resulting in chronic inflammation.4  Decreased tissue oxygenation also negatively affects the ability of fibroblasts to produce collagen, a vital component for healing and wound tensile strength. 5

Secondly, the production of an important protein (adiponectin) decreases as girth increases, negatively influencing two vital components of wound healing. Adiponectin aids in stimulating angiogenesis (new blood vessel formation) as well as promoting the proliferation and migration of keratinocytes to close wounds. 5

Finally, we cannot assume that an obese person is well nourished and must have consideration for the fact that high calorie diets may be very deficient in nutrients. It is well known that an adequate supply of vitamins, minerals and protein are necessary for wound healing. 2 A proper assessment of the obese individual’s dietary requirements may reveal the need for protein supplements.

UTI Prevention – Minimizing Antibiotic Overuse

Recently,   the CDC released the Core Elements for Antibiotic Stewardship for Nursing Homes to provide guidance to Long Term Care (LTC) facilities related to antibiotic prescribing practices. The CDC guidelines are designed to reduce antibiotic overuse and decrease the alarming rise in antibiotic resistant infections. (2) Antibiotics provide an astonishing value to healthcare, however, over prescribing these drugs threatens the longevity of their effectiveness due to the ability of bacteria to develop defense mechanisms and resistance to antibiotics.  Newly emerging antibiotic therapies are not being developed fast enough to keep up with the growing resistance capabilities of bacteria. (7) Our practices need to change to protect current therapeutic drugs and still meet the healthcare needs of our residents.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a serious concern in the LTC setting, and are ultimately responsible for frequent repetitive antibiotic use in the elderly. UTIs account for approximately 30 % of all infections and up to 50% of antibiotic use in the elderly residing in LTC facilities. (3,5)   Complications from UTI’s can include bacteremia, cystitis, pyelonephritis, falls and septic shock. It is important to remember that UTI’s can mimic symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and senile dementia. An estimated 1 in 10 nursing home residents has a UTI and nearly half of these residents will not exhibit typical signs and symptoms of infection, such as fever. (5,9) Falls have been shown to increase over 30-60% in residents with moderate to severe urinary tract infections. (8)

How can UTI’s be prevented? Several preventative measures can help minimize the risk of developing a UTI. These include adequate hydration, emptying the bladder when the need to urinate occurs, excellent perineal cleanliness and of course supplementing the diet with cranberries and D-Mannose (1,4). Incorporating a cranberry and D-Mannose supplement works naturally to interfere with bacterial adherence to the bladder walls, where infection of the mucosal surface can occur. E-Coli entering the bladder is the most common cause of   UTIs. (4)

DermaRite’s UTI Heal is an excellent product to promote urinary health in your residents. UTI Heal contains Cranberry, D-Mannose, Inulin (FOS) and Erythritol. Taken in a great tasting 1 ounce serving, the cranberry and D-Mannose in UTI Heal promote an environment that inhibits the proliferation of infection causing bacteria in the bladder. Additionally, Inulin promotes digestive health by stimulating beneficial bacterial growth and reducing harmful bacteria that can lead to infections.

As with all of DermaRite’s nutritional products, UTI Heal is sugar-free, gluten-free, and lactose-free to meet the dietary requirements of your residents.
