The two-piece skin barrier is a part of the two-piece pouching system. A two-piece system has a separate and detachable skin barrier and pouch. This allows the user to change the pouch while the skin barrier remains in place for three to four days. While using a two-piece skin barrier, you can use different sizes and varieties of pouches according to your requirement. The ostomy pouches can be removed, and new ones can be attached quickly and easily. HPFY offers a huge collection of high-quality two-piece skin barriers.

Skin barriers differ in their types. It is important to get the right one for your lifestyle and everyday needs. Additionally, it should adhere well to the peristomal skin, protecting your skin from stoma output. Following are some of the options to choose from.
Standard Skin Barrier: Standard wear skin barriers are typically designed for more formed stool and can last up to 5-7 days. Thus, they are the ideal choice if you have a colostomy.
Extended Wear Barrier: Extended wear skin barriers have greater resistance to liquid stoma output like urine and loose stool. So, these barriers are the perfect choice for those who have urostomy or ileostomy. They provide greater protection from stoma output causing skin irritation. Their greater resistance allows for a longer wear time.
Pre-Cut Skin Barrier: Pre-cut barriers are available in various sizes to accommodate your stoma without the need for modification. They are a great option if the stoma is round and is no longer changing in size.
Cut-To-Fit Skin Barrier: Cut-to-fit wafers are available with different sizes printed on them. The users can cut the size that particularly fits their stoma size. This is ideal for those with an irregular-shaped stoma or stoma size falls between regular ones.
Moldable Skin Barrier: Mold-to-fit barriers have all the virtues of cut-to-fit wafers, eliminating scissors. The flexible material used in the wafer allows the user to roll back it with fingers to achieve the desired size and shape. The barrier creates a snug fit around the stoma to provide greater leakage protection.
Flat Skin Barrier: A flat skin wafer is typically used when the stoma protrudes at least a quarter of an inch outside the body. The stoma output perfectly drains into the pouch without any leakage.
Convex Skin Barrier: The convex wafer has a curvature, and it is used for stomas that lie flat on the skin surface or slightly inward. They also work well if the peristomal skin has creases or folds. The convexity of the skin barrier puts pressure to help the stoma to protrude more from the skin and empty the stoma output into the pouch.
