Ostomy Barriers like Ostomy pastes and powders are designed to protect the skin, fill uneven surfaces, and for increased wear time of your ostomy appliance. Barrier pastes protect the skin surrounding the stoma from the stoma output that may cause irritation. Similarly Ostomy powders shield the delicate or irritated skin from the stoma output and absorbs extra moisture thereby extending wear time of your wafer or skin barrier. Inclusion of these products in your ostomy care routine helps in maximizing the use of your ostomy appliance and keeping the skin healthy. HPFY also carries no sting sprays, barrier wipes, Ostomy Strip Paste, Barrier Films etc. for protecting the delicate skin surrounding the stoma.
Ostomy Powder or Stoma powder is designed to absorb excess moisture from irritated skin surrounding a stoma opening. Stoma powder should not be substituted with any other type of powder as it is non-medicated. It can be used with a colostomy, ileostomy or a urostomy. Stomahesive powder is not meant to protect from or prevent irritation of the skin but it only keeps the skin dry. Once the surrounding skin has healed and is no longer moist stop using stomahesive powder. Buy Ostomy powder like ConvaTec Stomahesive Protective Powder, Hollister Adapt Stoma Powder for absorbing moisture from the moist skin.
Ostomy paste is a caulk like substance used to fill the uneven surfaces in order to create a flatter surface for attaching ostomy appliances. It is important to create a flat surface as the ostomy barriers or wafers will adhere better if it is completely in contact to the surface. The Wafer will not stay in place if there is a space between the wafer and the skin. It is a low cost alternative to barrier rings and seals. Try the Coloplast Ostomy Paste for skin protection and proper wafer placement.

Ostomy paste is used to protect the skin around a stoma and fill in uneven skin surfaces and gaps which could cause leakage around an appliance. Ostomy paste has a thick consistency like toothpaste and works like glue. It helps provide a tight seal around the stoma thus preventing leakage.
Ostomy powder is used for treating peristomal complications such as skin irritation. It should be used only when required. The powder offers an absorptive as well as a protective layer that dries the wet skin ensuring a better seal. When the skin is healed and no longer moist, stop use of stoma powder.
