CeraPlus Skin Barrier with Remois Technology*

Choose the barrier designed to keep healthy skin healthy — right from the start.

From day one: CeraPlus skin barrier helps ensure healthy skin.

The CeraPlus skin barrier is infused with ceramide. Ceramides serve as the skin's natural protection against water loss. By binding skin cells together to help retain moisture, these lipids also act as a lubricant, which may help the skin stay more resistant to injury over time. 1,2

Why minimizing TEWL is so important in peristomal skin.

Transepidermal water loss (TEWL) is an important aspect of skin health. Normal skin trauma from repeated use of an ostomy barrier is measured to have increased TEWL, even when skin doesn't appear compromised.

Start using the CeraPlus skin barrier from day one to help ensure the healthy skin your patients deserve.
