Irritated or red skin while also experiencing output on the skin

Leakage can be a result of poor adherence or erosion of the adhesive and can typically be as a result of cutting the hole in the baseplate inaccurately. If the hole is too big, the skin exposed to faeces or urine will eventually become irritated. Therefore, the supporting products recommended below are designed to protect against leakage.

Recommendations

Brava® Skin Barrier Brava® Skin Barrier

An invisible friend for the skin

Shields against output and adhesives

Leakage and adhesives can cause a variety of skin problems. Brava Skin Barrier leaves a thin breathable film on the skin that protects against potential damage but does not affect the adhesion of the next baseplate.

Dries in seconds

With Brava Skin Barrier, a new adhesive can be applied almost immediately so no inconvenient delays.

Brava® Protective Seal Brava® Protective Seal

Our best seal yet!

Brava® Protective Seal is proven to significantly reduce leakage compared to other seals on the market.*
Leakage and skin irritation are common challenges for people with a stoma. A key cause is poor product fit. Brava protective seals are designed to improve product fit by sealing the gap between the stoma and the baseplate.

Because different people need different fits

Two large seals complete the Brava Protective Seal range

 

Different people need different fits and needs can change over time as the stoma matures and body shape changes. That's why we've added the two new large seals to complete our Brava Protective Seal range, giving you a choice of 12 seals for varying stoma sizes with different adhesive diameters and thicknesses to choose from.

 

Large Seals (NEW)

Stoma size/Adhesive diameter

The LARGE Brava Protective Seals have the greatest adhesive area of all our seals. Designed for a secure fit on people with larger, uneven peristomal areas and for those who need a greater area of coverage.

Available in 2.5mm thickness.

 

Wide Seals

Stoma size/Adhesive diameter

The WIDE Brava Protective Seals have a greater adhesive area tham our regular seals, for a better fit over skin with more challenges such as deeper creases and folds.

Available in 2.5mm and 4.2mm thickness.

 

Regular Seals

Stoma size/Adhesive diameter

The REGULAR Brava Proective Seals improve fit and protect against leakage on skin with dips, creases and folds.

Available in 2.5mm and 4.2mm thickness.

Brava® Barrier Cream Brava® Barrier Cream

Gentle aid for dry or irritated skin

Brava Barrier Cream has a moisturising effect that helps to manage sore, dry or irritated skin without compromising adhesives or tapes.

It also creates a long-lasting barrier that shields the skin from further damage from stoma output or adhesives.

  • You may be using your adhesive for too long, resulting in the adhesive no longer protecting the skin adequately. Learn what to look out for when changing your adhesive to obtain optimal wear time with our Apply-Remove-Check (ARC) tool.
  • Be sure to obtain full contact between the adhesive and the skin around the stoma when applying.
