Find out how we tested the Brava® Protective Seal
All seals were tested using a validated laboratory skin model. To ensure uniformity, all products were cut and pressed to the same size with a thickness of 2.0 mm. The quality of the skin was verified by measurement of transepidermal water loss.
A total of 10 replicates from 2 different lots of each product were applied to the skin surface. Real ileostomy output was introduced. The samples were incubated at 32°C and shaken at 80 rpm.
After 24 hours, the samples were peeled off the skin surface and the leakage area under the seal was measured. Brava® Protective Seal was found to significantly reduce leakage compared to all other seals tested*1.
