Salts Healthcare – Dermacol
The Dermacol by Salts Healthcare is a unique stoma collar that helps to provide a leakproof barrier around the base of the stoma, helping to prevent output from coming into contact with your skin. There actually isn’t a product like this on the market and the first time I used the product it took a little getting used to but for someone like myself with an ileostomy who wants that added protection its worth a try!
Red, sore and itchy skin could be a thing of the past, thanks to a novel product from Salts Healthcare. Dermacol® is a unique stoma collar that helps to provide a leakproof barrier around the base of the stoma, helping to prevent output from coming into contact with the skin.
The Dermacol comes in boxes of 30, and included in the box is a colour coded collar size template making it easy to measure up if you need too. I felt looking at the box that a lot of thought has gone into the packaging with the clear instructions in English and multiple languages, easy to read and felt it had an air of quality.
Once you open the box your have a very clear how to use guide printed on the inside of the box
The products are placed into 3 cut out sections and stacked in piles of 5 making it incredibly easy to access the product with ease and no faff!
The measuring guide tool is very handy particularly if your stoma changes size regularly you can measure up and get the best possible fit for your ileostomy.
Ease of use
The Dermacol is easy to use and with the instructions written on the inside of the box you can’t go wrong! The most important thing with this product is to make sure you get the perfect size so you can get the full benefit of the Dermacol. Simply add the Dermacol around you ileostomy on clean and dry skin before adding your pouch to help prevent leakages, or output being able to go onto your skin.
With the right fit the Dermacol is very comfortable for the life of your pouch, even if you wear it for a couple of days it stays feeling comfortable and intact. I don’t even notice I am a wearing it.
No itchy skin which can be a result of out put irritating the skin this is because of the super secure but simple design
