Moist skin can cause the adhesive to detach from the skin

Adhesives are generally designed to manage moistness. However, extensive moistness from the stoma itself or perspiring may result in adhesive breakdown, ultimately resulting in leakage and skin irritation. See below for recommendations.


Brava® Protective Seal Brava® Protective Seal

Our best seal yet!

Brava® Protective Seal is proven to significantly reduce leakage compared to other seals on the market.*
Leakage and skin irritation are common challenges for people with a stoma. A key cause is poor product fit. Brava protective seals are designed to improve product fit by sealing the gap between the stoma and the baseplate.

The Brava® Protective Seal is designed to protect against leakage and protect the skin. It is based on a polymer formulation that provides dual protection. It is easy to shape so it fits snugly around the stoma and can be applied over skin with dips, creases and folds. Upon time of removal, it can be removed easily and cleanly, leaving minimal residue behind.

Brava® Powder Brava® Powder

Absorbs moisture to lessen the risk of skin irritation

As well as causing a great deal of inconvenience and discomfort, skin moisture can also counteract the dry surface necessary for baseplate adhesives to work properly.

Brava Powder absorbs moisture, keeping the skin dry and helping to stop skin irritation.

Product description

The Brava® Powder reduces skin irritation related to moist skin. It protects peristomal skin by absorbing moisture so the skin is kept dry. It can be used just around the stoma or under the adhesive. 

IMPORTANT! If you have any concerns – such as skin problems or how to use new products – you should always consult your stoma care nurse.

Order samples
  • When having issues with extensive moistness, the frequency with which the adhesive is changed has to be adapted accordingly. Learn what to look out for when changing your adhesive.
  • It may help to use a different adhesive designed to be more durable, such as the SenSura Xpro.
  • If the moistness is due to excessive perspiring, you may wish to speak to your healthcare professional for further guidance as this could be a sign of an underlying condition.
