Stoma Skin Care

Take comfort in proven protection

  • We understand that caring for an ostomy can be an everyday challenge. Maintaining the health of the skin surrounding your ostomy is critical to pouch adherence as well as your comfort, well-being and confidence.

    It is essential that the skin surrounding a stoma site be protected from the potentially irritating and excoriating effects of body fluids and adhesives. Applying Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film to a peri-stomal site will provide long-lasting protection against enzymes and other harmful elements often present in intestinal contents or urinary/faecal effluent. It will also protect the skin against adhesive trauma.

    Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film can be used at every appliance change to protect against adhesive related skin injury and to prevent and treat sore skin. So you can carry on with life.
