Theraworx is an all-natural solution designed to cleanse and nourish the skin. The skin-healthy formula lasts for hours after skin application, providing long-lasting moisture and protection. Containing no alcohols, it leaves your skin soft and comfortable rather than cracked and dry. Patented in 2002, this product has blossomed into a full line of skin-healthy products safe for the entire family, but strong enough for the clinician.
Theraworx is a skin-healthy solution to cleanse, moisturize, and protect your skin. The science behind the magic is multi-factorial and was designed over a period of years. First created by a dermatologist a decade ago, it has undergone a creation of its own. With ingredients included by category to perform numerous tasks, its base solution can be safely manipulated to become an entire line of products dedicated to meet the needs of the times.
Each ingredient is critical along with the methods used to provide a stable, reliable product. Theraworx is distributed only after undergoing a unique treatment process. This allows us to provide a product free of chemicals and alcohols so often used to prevent bacterial growth. Each ingredient is added in clinically significant amounts to assure function, not simply to look good on the label.

T-shirts for PD patients
At last! A way to stabilize the catheter all day and night. Our products can be worn during the day as undergarments, or at night to protect the catheter during sleep. We have regular t-shirts, men’s tank-tops, and women’s spaghetti-strap camisoles in a variety of sizes and made from pre-shrunk cotton. We also offer a shower caddy to protect the catheter while showering. The caddy is made from cotton with a nylon pocket.
To wear, push the catheter through the buttonhole into the pocket and velcro in place. For sleeping, push the catheter through the buttonhole into the pocket, connect the catheter to the machine, loop the hose, and velcro into place to prevent tangling during sleep.
