Stomahesive® Paste is used like a caulking tool to prevent leaking to fill in bumpy, uneven surfaces around the stoma to reduce gaps between the peristomal skin and the ostomy skin barrier. Stomahesive® Paste is also a great tool to use around flat, skin level stomas. Applying Stomahesive® Paste is easy, just squeeze a line of the paste around the opening on the sticky side of the wafer. The line of Stomahesive® Paste should be of similar thickness to toothpaste onto a toothbrush.
Fills in uneven areas around the stoma to help prevent leakage that may result in skin breakdown
Helps you get the best fit and wear time from your ostomy system
Suitable for all types of ostomies
ConvaTec's Stomahesive Paste is a pectin based ostomy paste used as a filler in uneven skin surfaces around the stoma to help increase ostomy system wear-time and protect skin. Stomahesive paste is a ubiquitous ostomy accessory and there are other brands of ostomy paste that will are its equal. Stomahesive paste does contain alcohol so if it is applied to irritated, sensitive skin, it will likely sting.
Stomahesive Paste is designed for use in conjunction with Stomahesive and Durahesive skin barriers / wafers in the protection of the skin around the stoma. Stomahesive Paste is not a bonding cement, glue or adhesive. It is used as a filler or "caulking" agent to increase skin barrier wear time by providing a flat pouching surface and helping to prevent leakage under the skin barrier.
Stomahesive paste ingredients: 2-BUTENEDIOIC ACID, MONOBUTYL ESTER POLYMER W/METHOXYETHENE, TRIACETIN, CARBOXYMETHYLCELLULOSE, GELATIN, PECTIN, GLYCERYL TRIS 12-HYDROXY STEARATE, ETHANOL, BUTANOL, N-BUTYL ALCOHOL, PROPYL CARBINOL, and BUTYL ALCOHOL.

Easy to squeeze and it helps me make a good seal with my appliance.

I like the new tube for the Convatec stoma paste. It's easier to squeeze and it seems to last longer. The paste doesn't seem to sting much and the price is right. THANKS PARTHENON!
