Welcome to the Eakin Cohesive Seals blog!
Every fortnight we will be uploading articles, which we hope will help to make life with a stoma that little bit easier.
If this is the first time you have visited one of our sites, let us introduce ourselves. We are a small family-owned and run company based in Northern Ireland. The company was started in 1974 by Tom Eakin, a pharmacist, who was driven by the desire to improve the quality of life of people living with a stoma (ostomy). Through caring for a close family member with a urostomy, Tom quickly realised the challenges involved.
One of the most common complaints was that the skin was red and sore around the stoma. Tom got to work in the house next door to his shop, mixing adhesives to protect the skin around the stoma from aggressive output. 6 years later, he had perfected his adhesive formula, which became a stand-alone product. In 1980, the Eakin Cohesive® Seal was born and the formula has not changed since.
So how are we different from the other ostomy product companies out there? The company is still family owned and run, which has many advantages. The absence of over-complicated structures and bureaucracy means that we work efficiently and react quickly. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service. The products are still manufactured at the original site in Northern Ireland, as we like to keep a close eye on quality standards.
