Aloe Vesta Protective Barrier Spray from ConvaTec is an occlusive barrier that repels moisture and protects skin from irritants in urine, feces, and exudate. The manufacturer claims it is suitable for incontinent patients at risk for skin breakdown or with skin damage. The Bag-on-Valve delivery system allows the product to be sprayed directly on the skin from any angle and prevents the need for contact to sensitive skin.

As the propellant evaporates, the active ingredient, petrolatum, increases in concentration by as much as 72%, according to ConvaTec. It is alcohol- and fragrance-free.
