When it comes to peristomal skin, there is no such thing as too much protection.
With three levels of protection, Dansac TRE products are designed to help protect peristomal skin and keep it naturally healthy.
Skin naturally has a slightly acidic pH level, or acid mantle. Protecting this environment is very important, since it supports the skin’s integrity and antimicrobial properties. Stoma fluids are pH neutral and rich in digestive enzymes. When these enzymes come into contact with healthy peristomal skin, they digest the outermost layer of the epidermis, leading to peristomal skin complications (PSCs).
PSCs are frequent in ostomy care and have a significant impact on patients' quality of life. Traditionally, PSCs have been managed reactively – after they occur. But what if there were stoma care products that could proactively protect peristomal skin and keep it naturally healthy?
