The Value of the CeraPlus Skin Barrier with Remois Technology*

Peristomal Skin Deserves Better

The importance of peristomal skin health in ostomy care can’t be overstated. The condition of the skin greatly affects how well the skin barrier can adhere, as well as the general comfort and well-being of a patient living with a stoma.  Unfortunately, peristomal skin problems are too common. About half of those living with a stoma will report peristomal skin issues at some point in their lives.

Many even think that skin problems are a normal part of living with a stoma. We disagree. Patients do not need to suffer, and our goal is to help maintain healthy peristomal skin from the start.

The Benefits of Ceramide

The CeraPlus skin barrier is infused with ceramide, a naturally occurring lipid in the skin, which protects against dryness, and features a formulation to help:

  • Protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier
  • Maintain good peristomal skin health
  • Decrease transepidermal water loss (TEWL) from damaged or eroded skin
