The Benefits of Using Ostomy Barrier Strips

Have you been living with your colostomy, ileostomy, or urostomy for a while? If so, you’re probably aware of how the edges of an ostomy wafer can sometimes lose its stickiness and begin to lift away from the skin after prolonged wear-time.

Ostomy barrier strips like ease™ strips work to keep your ostomy wafer in place while providing longer wear-time, even when you’re bathing, swimming, and sweating.

To combat lifting, all you have to do to use barrier strips is apply them around the edges of your ostomy skin barrier or wafer. Convatec ease™ strips, in particular, have some key features and benefits that can provide comfort, movability, and security.

What are Convatec ease™ strips?

Convatec ease™ strips aren’t just your ordinary ostomy barrier strips. These thin, flexible barrier strips work to keep your ostomy skin barrier in place all day, providing comfort and peace of mind.

The top layer of each strip is water-resistant while staying breathable, which makes wearing ease™ strips great for bathing and swimming. No more fears about sudden leaks from loosening ostomy appliances, whether you’re having fun at the pool or just taking a shower.

If you’ve ever had issues with other barrier strips, it might be worth trying a free sample of ease™ strips.

Why? They’re breathable, thin, and they move with your body. In fact, these barrier strips were created with hydrocolloid materials to have the look and feel of second skin. Some wearers say they barely even feel ease™ strips when they’re wearing them.
