        Product Information

        AdvaCare is a CE, ISO and USFDA manufacturer and global supplier of Cotton Balls. The StayGuard™ brand of Cotton Balls is internationally distributed and recognized for reliable quality and exceptional value. With distribution across developed and developing markets alike, our products are uniquely positioned as the brand of choice for medical professionals.

        A cotton ball is a soft, fiber ball that is composed of the natural material cotton. Cotton balls have an array of medical uses, for example the cleaning of wounds when dabbed with disinfectants such as hydrogen peroxide or iodine, rubbing on antiseptics to treat septic wounds, topical ointments, cleansing cuts of any foreign material that may have entered the wound, and mopping up blood post invasive medical procedures such as an injection or blood sample collection. They are also useful for drying a local area of skin to prepare it for bandaging.  

        The cotton balls in the AdvaCare range are manufactured from pure cotton, ensuring comfort and quality when using. Each ball is of a consistent size and weight; guaranteeing customers will not receive a ball of inadequate size. 

        Sterile cotton balls have been treated to ensure they are sterile. They are more suited for medical applications, for example applying disinfectant to a wound. Sterile cotton balls reduce the risk of any foreign contaminants picked up during the manufacturing process from entering a wound that is being treated with the cotton ball.

        Non-sterile cotton balls have not been treated, and are not considered sterile. They are more suited to non-medical applications, such as household tasks. This includes soaking up a spill or cleaning purposes. For medical and cosmetic applications, sterile cotton balls are recommended.

        Not only are cotton balls a staple piece of equipment in the medical world, but they can also be used for household tasks such as absorbing spills, or in cosmetics, such as makeup removal. Cotton balls are essential in any first aid kit, to rapidly apply disinfectant to any scratches or wounds. Our cotton balls are available as sterile or non-sterile, depending on application and preference.

        Cotton balls are relatively simplistic in design and concept, but they have countless uses ranging from medical to cosmetics, to household chores. 

        There are 6 series of cotton balls available in the AdvaCare range. They are explored in more depth below.

        AdvaCare also offers other skin & wound care products, discover few of them here below:


        • Cotton balls are easy to use and require little instruction or training;
        • Cotton balls clean wounds and assist in accelerating the healing process;
        • Cotton balls can remove foreign agents from a wound, decreasing the risk of infection;
        • Different sizes ensure that the cotton balls fulfill the requirements to treat wounds of different sizes and severity.


        Before use, thoroughly wash hands and ensure there is no contaminated material present which may infect the cotton ball and hence transfer it into the wound.

        In terms of medical use, transfer a small volume of disinfectant or antiseptic solution onto the cotton ball, ready for application. Just prior to skin contact with the cotton ball, carefully clean the area to remove any dirt or debris, and then dry with a cloth or microfiber towel. Once complete, gently rub the area with the cotton ball, increasing pressure if cleansing a wound of foreign material. If the wound is exposed or prone to bleeding, cover and secure the wound with a bandage, also produced by AdvaCare.

        It is imperative that cotton balls are not used if the packaging or seal is compromised. Evidence of this may suggest tampering or loss of sterility. If one should come across cotton balls inside compromised packaging, the correct course of action is to dispose of it quickly and safely.


        • Do not re-use cotton balls that have been used before. The cotton ball should be discarded after use. Reuse of cotton balls can transfer bacteria between surfaces and promote infection.
        • If the cotton ball becomes soaked with blood or other bodily fluids, a new one should be used and the old one discarded.
        • Must prepare the cotton balls for use in a clean, sterile environment, absent of bodily fluids or other sources of contamination;
        • Promptly and safely dispose of any cotton balls that have touched a potentially contaminated surface;
        • If the cotton ball has blood or any other bodily matter on it, it should be handled as biohazard waste and disposed of correctly to prevent the spread of infection.


        As the name suggests, cotton balls are made from 100% cotton. They are completely safe on the skin, even for sensitive skin types.
