Ceramide is a naturally occurring element within the skin that helps to keep it healthy. Hollister has created the CeraPlus™ skin barrier line of ceramide-infused skin barriers that have demonstrated it helps maintain healthy skin around the stoma.
The formulation of the CeraPlus™ skin barrier is designed to help protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier. With the right formulation and the support of a solid fit around the stoma, healthy skin can remain healthy through pouching changes. In a recent study, the CeraPlus™ skin barrier demonstrated that it does just that.
We asked 184 clinicians from around the world to use the CeraPlus™ skin barrier and provide their feedback1. Based on their evaluations of 284 ostomy patients, here is just a sample of what they had to say:
Commonly found in skin care products, ceramide is a natural component of human skin that supports the function of all five layers of the epidermis. It links cells together to form a waterproof, protective barrier. Ceramide levels in healthy skin are plentiful. Lower levels of ceramide may be found in dry, damaged, and inflamed skin.
