Transepidermal water loss (TEWL) is an important aspect of skin health. Normal skin trauma from repeated use of an ostomy barrier is measured to have increased TEWL, even when skin doesn't appear compromised.
When an ostomy barrier is removed, cells from the outermost layer of skin are also removed along with it. This damage to the skin allows increased moisture from inside the body to pass through into the environment. Escaping moisture is called transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and can be assessed in a lab with a tool that measures evaporation. A lower TEWL value indicates better skin integrity.1-6
TEWL was 41% lower with the CeraPlus™ skin barrier than SenSura Mio skin barrier.1
