Moist skin can cause the adhesive to detach from the skin

Adhesives are generally designed to manage moistness. However, extensive moistness from the stoma itself or perspiring may result in adhesive breakdown, ultimately resulting in leakage and skin irritation. See below for recommendations.

Recommendations

Brava® Protective Seal Brava® Protective Seal

Brava® Protective Seal creates a seal between the stoma and the baseplate and is designed to protect against leakage and protect the skin. The seal is also easy to shape, apply and remove. Now there are new wide sizes available for a greater coverage of more challenging peristomal skin areas.

Read more about the new sizes in the Product Description section.

The Brava Protective Seal is designed to protect against leakage and protect the skin. It is based on a polymer formulation that provides dual protection. It is easy to shape so it fits snugly around the stoma and can be applied over skin with dips, creases and folds. Removing the protective seal is quick and easy, leaving minimal residue behind.

 

Regular Seals

For a better fit and improved protection against leakage for skin with dips, creases and folds.

 

 

Wide Seals

A greater surface area, for a better fit over skin with more challenges such as deeper creases and folds.

Brava® Powder Brava® Powder

Absorbs moisture to lessen the risk of skin irritation

As well as causing a great deal of inconvenience and discomfort, skin moisture can also counteract the dry surface necessary for baseplate adhesives to work properly.

Brava Powder absorbs moisture, keeping the skin dry and helping to stop skin irritation.

IMPORTANT! If you have any concerns – such as skin problems or how to use new products – you should always consult your stoma care nurse.

  • When having issues with extensive moistness, the frequency with which the adhesive is changed has to be adapted accordingly. Learn what to look out for when changing your adhesive.
  • It may help to use a different adhesive designed to be more durable, such as the SenSura Xpro.
  • If the moistness is due to excessive perspiring, you may wish to speak to your healthcare professional for further guidance as this could be a sign of an underlying condition.
