CeraPlus Skin Barrier Caused Significantly Less Disruption to the Skin Compared to SenSura Mio Skin Barrier**1

CeraPlus skin barrier with Remois Technology* demonstrated to minimise transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and skin irritation compared to SenSura Mio Skin barrier.**1

When you remove an ostomy barrier, what else are you peeling away?

When an ostomy barrier is removed, cells from the outermost layer of skin are also removed along with it. This damage to the skin allows increased moisture from inside the body to pass through into the environment. Escaping moisture is called transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and can be assessed in a lab with a tool that measures evaporation. A lower TEWL value indicates better skin integrity.1-6

The CeraPlus skin barrier observed to be more effective than SenSura Mio skin barrier at protecting skin from the damage of adhesive removal1

Minimising TEWL

TEWL was 41% lower with the CeraPlus skin barrier than SenSura Mio skin barrier.1


Minimising skin irritation

Images taken on final day of participation

 

CeraPlus skin barrier is significantly less disruptive to the skin compared to SenSura Mio skin barrier.1

Protecting Skin From Damage

CeraPlus skin barrier provided better protection against the damaging effects of repeated adhesive removal than SenSura Mio.1
