Top 10 All-Star Incontinence Protection Products of 2021
Looking back to 2021, the clear trend was toward higher absorbency products offering skin care benefits
Preventing skin breakdown before it begins is an important concern for anyone managing incontinence, and it's clear the industry is listening.
What were the most popular?
The 2021 top brand winners are from well-known names including TENA, Tranquility, and PeapodMats.
TENA has steadily been reformatting their already high performance products to their ProSkin line, featuring ConfioAir 100% fully breathable technology for fast absorption to help keep the skin dry and maintain the skin's natural moisture balance.
Tranquility Premium have always been backed by their Peach Mat Guarantee of unsurpassed overall performance in the areas of skin dryness, odour reduction, urine pH neutralization and the Inhibition of bacterial growth.
With lots of customers assuming the direct care for an elderly parent combined with ongoing pandemic response, many more customers moved to our convenient subscription service. We saw greater numbers of sales of disposable protective underwear and adult diapers and strong interest in personal skin care and wipes.

Check out the newest colours - navy and light grey - in this selection of washable, soft bed pads and chair pads that are easy to use, wash and reuse.
Dragon's Den found PeapodMats first and has helped bring this perfect bed wetting solution for all ages to Canadians. The PeapodMats creators - Vancouver-based Amanda and Liz - are two moms who were looking for a good quality, re-usable waterproof bedwetting mat to be as breathable and green as possible.
It would appear our customers agree that Liz and Amanda did it! Here are two of the many five star reviews we've received from PeapodMats buyers:
"Work great, are comfortable, wash and dry well in regular machines and have stood up to dozens of washings with minimal wear."
"These are so much better than changing the huge mattress pad! Very convenient, easy to wash and long-lasting. I've washed them so many times over the last several months, sometimes 3-4 times per week, and they have held up extremely well."
By using a soft breathable cotton and and a special coating for waterproofing, these two women achieved their goal.
