What are Appeel & LBF Hydrosolve Flushable Wipes?

Appeel Hydrosolve Flushable Wipes are used to facilitate quick and gentle adhesive stoma appliance removal, and LBF Hydrosolve Flushable Wipes provide a protective skin barrier for ostomates. Both Hydrosolve wipes have been designed to be suitable for flushing away in the toilet.

What is Appeel?

Appeel is a no sting, silicone based medical adhesive remover.

How does Appeel work?

When the silicone comes into contact with the adhesive of the stoma device it temporarily changes the surface energy of the skin, disrupting the adhesive properties between skin and device. This facilitates gentle removal of the stoma appliance.

Why use Appeel?

Appeel helps to reduce skin trauma associated with the repeated removal of adhesive stoma appliances, by facilitating quick and gentle removal. It dries quickly, leaving skin ready for the next adhesive application.

Will Appeel sting on my skin?

As Appeel is alcohol free, it will not sting even on sore skin.

Will I have to clean Appeel off after I have used it?

No, Appeel dries in seconds as the silicone it contains evaporates completely from the skin.

Will Appeel affect the adhesion of my next pouch?

No, it evaporates completely, leaving no residue.

What is LBF Barrier Film?

LBF (Liquid Barrier Film) is a ‘no sting’ skin barrier for ostomates to use as protection from bodily fluids and adhesives around peristomal skin.

How does LBF Barrier Film work?

LBF uses silicone to create an easy to apply barrier to protect the skin.

Will LBF Barrier Film sting on my skin?

As LBF Barrier Film is alcohol free, it will not sting even on sore skin.
