Specific to your wound care practice, skin care products that support the skin’s protective barrier function are an important part of a successful pressure injury prevention program.4 “Where I find a lot of utility for botanicals is really around allowing for that protective barrier and…promoting optimal skin health,” notes leading medical ethnobotanist Cassandra Quave, PhD, a Medline consultant.
