Healthy skin helps make life better

The condition of the skin around your stoma greatly affects how well the skin barrier can adhere, as well as your comfort and quality of life. Maintaining healthy peristomal skin from the start is the ultimate goal. With the right product, you can minimize the potential occurrence and impact of peristomal skin complications.1

 

The difference is ceramide

CeraPlus™ skin barrier with Remois technology* is infused with ceramide, the skin's naturally occurring protection against dryness. It's designed to maintain adhesive properties, and features a formulation infused with ceramide to help:
  • Protect the skin's natural moisture barrier2
  • Maintain good peristomal skin health2
  • Decrease transepidermal water loss (TEWL) from damaged or eroded skin2

Available on one- and two-piece pouching systems. To order today, fill out the request form at the bottom of the page or call 1-800-308-9445.

The role of moisture in healthy skin

When you remove your ostomy barrier, cells from the outermost layer of skin are also removed with it. The loss of these protective cells allows more moisture from inside your body to escape into the environment. This is called transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Increased rates of water loss can make the skin more vulnerable to damage and peristomal skin complications.
