Barrier creams or perineal moisturisers are used for protection by acting as a buffer in protecting skin against moisture and degrading enzymes present in faecal matter. They may be formulated as creams that are an emulsion of oil/lipid and water and contain barrier ingredients (zinc oxide, dimethicone) in combination or alone, as an ointment that is semi-solid and comes in formulation with petroleum, in the form of pastes that are formulated with absorbent materials such as carboxymethylcellulose, in the form of lotions which is a liquid suspension of active or inert ingredients, and as films that contain polymer (acrylate-based) suspended in water, and forms a transparent protective layer on the skin.

The inclination of women towards keeping the perineal area clean and moisturising has resulted in the high use of barrier perineal products. The low risks of side-effects also make barrier a suitable choice.
Perineal cleansers are formulated with surfactants and quickly remove debris (dead skin, oil) with minimal force. Perineal cleansers are available in several categories based on their chemical structure, such as non-ionic, anionic, and amphoteric, containing more than one type of surfactant. Cleanser sometimes also includes additional conditioning agents to preserve the moisture in the skin.
Perineal wipes or washcloths are pre-moisturised-moisturised wipes and offer easy and quick cleaning of the skin. Perineal wipes are made up of smooth material to provide minimal friction. These are available in scented and non-scented forms and sometimes contain mild surfactants for conditioning the skin. As a result of the infections that washcloths can cause, their demand is expected to rise at a relatively slower pace than the other product types.
