Alps Skin Reliever Gel Sheath Materials
Alps uses a proprietary compound called Easygel and is made from a combination of Styrene Triblock Copolymer & Mineral Oil.
Daily: Be sure to clean your Alps Skin Reliever Sheath on a daily basis with a light washcloth and neutral/pH-balanced soap, Alps Prosthetic Cleanser PD595 and Ottobock Derma Clean are especially made for this purpose. Do not scrub or rub your Alps Skin Reliever during washing as this can damage the gel. Don't forget to rinse well because soap residue can cause skin issues. Make sure this alps gel sheath is completely dry before using. Wipe the sleeve dry with a clean towel and apply a light dusting of talcum powder to the outside of the gel sheath.
Weekly: Place a small amount of rubbing alcohol on a soft, clean cloth. Do not soak the Alps Skin Reliever in alcohol. Wipe the sheath with a cloth thoroughly, wipe dry with a towel and apply a light dusting of talcum powder to the outside.
Storing your Skin Reliever Sheath: Always keep the foam insert in the skin Reliever when not in use. Laying flat for long periods may cause creases to develop.
