Provox Skin Barrier – a protective layer on the skin
Provox Skin Barrier leaves a protective layer on the skin, which can be helpful if the skin is sensitive. The barrier comes in a special wipe that leaves a protective layer on the skin. Use it after cleaning the skin, but before attaching the daytime adhesive. Always remember to massage the adhesive before you apply it to improve the stickiness. Do not use the barrier when using the Provox Life™ Night Adhesive.
Your neck tissue is very delicate and can be damaged as you have to change your adhesives regularly. This is why you should make sure to do it as carefully as possible. It’s very important to get into good habits when it comes to looking after the skin around your stoma. If you do, it is less likely your skin will become irritated or damaged – and the adhesives will stick longer.
