Removing stoma pouches can be both painful and damaging to skin. Alcohol adhesive removers are traditionally used to remove adhesives, but alcohol is known to sting.

Appeel is a silicone based, no sting medical adhesive remover that removes stoma pouches easily, quickly and gently.  It is gentle enough to use on sensitive skin, such as that of babies. Appeel dries in seconds and will not affect the adhesion of your appliance. Appeel wipes can be used to remove any residue left on the skin.

How to use


Appeel will not soak through waterproof dressings such as hydrocolloid flanges; therefore, gently peel back the corner of the pouch flange, spray Appeel around the edge and wait 30 seconds.

Continue to peel back the flange, applying more Appeel as necessary.

Before applying another adhesive product, wait 30 seconds for Appeel to evaporate.

It is important to remove any residue to create a good seal between the adhesive and the skin.


After removing your stoma pouch, use an Appeel wipe to gently remove any excess adhesive.
