Creases and folds may cause the adhesive to stick poorly to the skin

Leakage as a result of poor contact between the adhesive and your skin is typically caused by creases and folds or other irregularities in the area around your stoma that make it difficult to obtain a proper seal. See below for recommendations.


Brava® Protective Seal Brava® Protective Seal

Brava® Protective Seal creates a seal between stoma and baseplate, this reduces the risk of leakage and protects the skin. The seal is also easy to shape, apply and remove.

The Brava® Protective Seal has a new polymer formulation that is designed to protect against leakage and protect the skin, thereby providing a 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. When it is time to take it off, it can be removed easily and cleanly, leaving minimal residue behind. Wide sizes now available for a greater surface area and better fit over skin with more challenges, such as deeper creases and folds.


Brava® Paste Brava® Paste

Sting free protection against leakage

The new alcohol free Brava® Paste fills folds and creases to maintain a tight fit between the stoma and the your baseplate to reduce leakage.

The new alcohol free and durable Brava® Paste can help reduce leakage by filling creases and folds in the skin, thereby maintaining a tight fit between the stoma and your baseplate.

The alcohol-free formulation is skin-friendly, has a skin friendly pH-level and does not sting. The durable paste is resistant to breaking down or dissolving, thus protects the skin against output to avoid irritation of the skin. 

Brava® Belt Brava® Belt

A discreet belt for extra security
