Premier One Piece Systems
Premier one-piece ostomy bag systems include the skin barrier. They are simple to wear as the whole unit attaches to the abdominal surface around the stoma. The FlexWear skin barrier and ComfortWear panels deliver comfort and skin protection while the sensitive closure provides security. The drainable ostomy bag versions have a non-leak outlet that responds when softly squeezed allowing full control of the contents. They come with a palpable seal that makes them manageable to anybody with impaired vision or manual disabilities, and are easily cleaned with a paper towel.

Karaya 5 Ostomy System
Karaya 5 products are named after their main active component. The Karaya Gum used in Hollister’s products is an extract from the Sterculia Urens, a tropical climate tree found in India, Indonesia, Panama, Philippines, Senegal, Sudan and Vietnam. India is the largest Karaya Gum exporter.
Karaya Gum serves many uses: In the food industry it acts as an emulsifier in meats and baked goods and as a stabilizer in juices and sauces. In industrial applications it serves as an additive, a binder and an accelerator. In medicine it serves as a laxative, a stimulant to wound healing including bed sores, and an additive in masking tapes, gels and adhesives.
Hollister is the largest Karaya user among its peers, and is the only one with an ostomy system where Karaya Gum is the key component. All Karaya 5 Ostomy Pouches are One Piece systems that bring a bag attached to a Karaya 5 Skin Barrier and Seal Ring. Once worn the whole system including bag, skin barrier and seal is discarded. Karaya 5’s Skin Barrier and Seal Ring can make unique claims concerning sensitive skin care. Their shielding action serves to maintain a healthy stoma and peristomal skin environment. They are effective in treating sensitive and swelling stomas, inhibit corrosion from exposure to urine and stool, deter bacteria proliferation, and retain a balanced skin ph.

Hollister Skin Barriers
Also known as Ostomy Wafer and Base Plate, the Skin Barrier supports the whole ostomy system. On one side it adheres to the abdominal surface, and on the other it holds the ostomy pouch. The Skin Barrier safeguards the stoma and peristomal skin from fluids and the strain from body movements. Hollister offers an array of Skin Barriers to suit every possible need.
