The Hollister New Image Convex CeraPlus Skin Barrier, a breakthrough product designed to revolutionize the care and protection of stomas. With its advanced Remois technology and infusion of ceramide, this skin barrier sets a new standard for comfort, reliability, and peristomal skin health. Ceramide is a natural component of human skin that helps to decrease transepidermal water loss (TEWL) from damaged or eroded skin. It is designed to maintain adhesive properties and features a formulation designed to help protect the skin's natural moisture barrier and help maintain good peristomal skin health. Use the CeraPlus skin barrier with New Image ostomy pouches, including drainable, high output, closed, and urostomy options. Can be used with ileostomy and colostomy bags.

What does "without a tape border" mean?
- Gentle Application: Without a tape border, the skin barrier can be applied more smoothly and gently to the skin around the stoma. This reduces the chances of causing irritation or trauma to the delicate skin.
- Easy Removal: When it's time to remove the skin barrier, the lack of a tape border makes the process easier and less painful. There is no additional tape to peel off, minimizing the risk of discomfort or skin damage during removal.
- Minimized Residue: Tape borders can sometimes leave adhesive residue on the skin after removal. By eliminating the tape border, the risk of residue buildup is reduced, allowing for cleaner and more comfortable changes.
- Enhanced Flexibility: Without a tape border, the skin barrier may have more flexibility and conformability to the contours of the stoma and surrounding skin. This can contribute to a better fit, improved seal, and increased overall comfort.
It's important to note that even without a tape border, the adhesive properties of the skin barrier are still effective in providing a secure and reliable seal around the stoma. The absence of a tape border simply offers a different application and removal experience, which can be beneficial for individuals with sensitive or easily irritated skin.
What is a Convex Ostomy Wafer?
Convex ostomy barriers or wafers are specifically designed for individuals with stomas that are retracted, flush, or located in a skin crease. These barriers have a curved shape that helps to provide a gentle pressure against the skin surrounding the stoma, promoting protrusion and reducing the risk of leakage. By creating a more secure and snug fit, convex ostomy barriers help improve the effectiveness of the seal, enhance wear time, and prevent potential complications such as leakage and skin irritation. They are an essential solution for individuals with challenging stoma profiles, ensuring comfort and confidence in their daily activities.
What is a "floating flange" and does the New Image Convex CeraPlus Skin Barrier have one?
Yes, the New Image Convex CeraPlus Skin Barrier has a floating flange. A floating flange refers to a design feature found in certain types of ostomy barriers, including the New Image Convex CeraPlus Skin Barrier. The term "flange" refers to the flat, plastic ring that surrounds the opening of the ostomy barrier and attaches it to the skin.
In the case of a floating flange, the flange is not permanently affixed to the barrier itself. Instead, it can move or rotate independently from the barrier. This flexibility allows for easier positioning and alignment of the flange with the stoma, accommodating individual anatomical variations and providing a more comfortable and precise fit.
The floating flange design offers added convenience during application, allowing users to adjust the position of the flange to achieve the desired alignment with the stoma before securing it in place. This feature can contribute to a better seal, improved comfort, and enhanced overall wearability of the ostomy barrier.
