Frequently asked questions about the new Cohesive StomaWrap™
The Cohesive StomaWrap™ is a new concept in the stoma care market. The unique shape makes the StomaWrap™ very quick and easy to fit.
There is no need to warm, stretch or tear to the correct size. Simply wrap it around the stoma and overlap to create a secure seal and prevent leaks. Even though this is a new product, skin protection is guaranteed as the Cohesive StomaWrap™ is made from the same ingredients as the much loved Eakin Cohesive® Seals and SLIMS® which have been protecting peristomal skin for decades.
As with any new product we have created a list of commonly asked questions about when it should be used and how to use it.
Q. Why would I use a Cohesive StomaWrap™ instead of Cohesive SLIMS® or Seals?
If you have a large stoma or oval shaped stoma then the Cohesive StomaWrap™ would be more suitable as it has a larger centre hole and a larger diameter. Also due to its unique shape it is particularly easy to fit so is ideal for those with limited dexterity or those who want to simplify their stoma care routine.
Q. Why does the StomaWrap™ have a larger centre hole than the other Seals in the range?
StomaWrap has a larger centre hole as it is designed to fit large or oval stomas.
Q. Can I use the Cohesive StomaWrap™ alongside other Eakin accessories?
Yes the StomaWrap™ can be used with Eakin Cohesive® Paste to fill any dips or crevices before applying the StomaWrap™ on top, as well as Release Adhesive Remover to painlessly remove any excess residue and Protect Barrier Film.

Q. Can I achieve longer pouch weartime with the Cohesive StomaWrap™?
Yes the Cohesive StomaWrap™ will increase pouch weartime to some extent, in a similar way to Cohesive SLIMS®. However, if you wish to maximise weartime we would recommend using the Cohesive ® Seal.
Q. Will the StomaWrap™ offer the same skin protection as Cohesive SLIMS® and Seals?
Cohesive StomaWrap™ is made from the same ingredients as Eakin Cohesive® Seals and SLIMS®. All Cohesive® Seals are extremely skin-friendly and unlike other seals on the market, Cohesive® contains a minimal amount of ingredients so it is less likely that any skin reactions occur.
