Does your adhesive remover sting when you spray it onto your skin?
Sound familiar? That’s why we’ve brought out the next generation of silicone medical adhesive removers.
Trio Elite® Sting Free Adhesive Remover is made from a formulation that is 100% silicone. It’s hypoallergenic and sting-free so won’t irritate the skin around your stoma. The spray has a special nozzle that sprays the amount you want, exactly where you want it for minimal wastage.
Once you’ve sprayed, Elite gets to work on the tough adhesives used in many stoma care products such as base plates, wafers, pastes and hydrocolloid seals, for fast and pain-free removal. Traditional propellants used in other ostomy sprays can sting or damage sore skin, so Trio Elite® spray remover uses “bag in can” technology which means Elite is kinder on skin and uses all of the product in the can.
Trio Elite® is also available in a wipe. Following the removal of your ostomy bag, use Trio Elite® wipes to prepare the skin around your stoma, leaving it clean and dry for the application of the new ostomy bag.Request a sample

Elite & Pearls review - Michelle
I have recently changed to yourselves and so glad I did. Your products, especially your sting free adhesive remover and Pearls are absolutely terrific. I normally have to scrape or pull adhesive off but the wipes took it off in one go. I am absolutely delighted to recommend you to anyone else who is suffering like myself.
the benefits of Trio Elite

- Does not sting skin as it does not contain traditional propellants
- Dries in seconds and prepares skin for your next bag by ensuring no residue or wetness remains on the skin
Available as a 50ml can or a box of 30 wipes.
What’s the difference between hydrocolloid and silicone?
Hydrocolloid is an absorbent material used in many ostomy products, it’s designed to absorb moisture and the more it absorbs the better it sticks. When used in ostomy, output and sweat can be absorbed by the hydrocolloid products and held against the skin, causing irritation and sore skin as well as causing the hydrocolloid to break down and lose integrity. Silicone maintains a good adhesion with skin but does not absorb waste making it kinder on skin and more hygienic. It’s hypoallergenic, so less likely to cause irritation, and the silicone in Trio products is also responsive, fitting and moving with your stoma and body to improve the fit.
How do I get Trio® products on prescription?
You can speak directly to your delivery service and ask them to switch your product, however some prefer for you to speak to a healthcare professional before changing products. In this case, speak to your stoma care nurse or GP to get your prescription updated.
How will Trio® silicone seals adhere to the skin if they are not absorbent?
Absorbency is a requirement of hydrocolloid to enable it to achieve adhesion, however silicone products are designed to adhere to the skin without the need to absorb liquid or body waste. This results in instant adhesion and keeps corrosive output and body fluids away from the skin providing a cleaner, more hygienic solution.
Can I shower whilst wearing Trio® products?
Yes. Trio® silicone products are non-absorbent and adhere well to the skin allowing the user to shower without fear of the water affecting adhesion.
Can I use Trio® silicone products on wet skin?
Most ostomy products will struggle to adhere to very wet skin. If your skin is very sore and wet, you should seek medical attention and take advice from your healthcare professional. However, if your skin is mild to moderately wet, you should prepare your skin as normal prior to any appliance or bag change, then apply the Trio product as normal. This includes washing and drying the skin and applying powder if necessary.
How long can I leave the Trio® silicone products on for?
Trio® silicone products are designed to remain on the skin, delivering their full benefits, until you are ready to change your appliance/bag. Trio’s custom formulated silicones do not break down in the presence of body fluids and are designed to remain on the skin for prolonged periods of time.
What happens if I appear to get skin irritation after I use Trio® silicone products?
It is important to note that silicone is chemically inert and unlikely to cause skin irritation. Silicone is used widely in all areas of healthcare for this exact reason. However, if you feel that irritation has occurred, remove the product in question from your skin and clean the skin thoroughly with clean, warm water only. If the irritation persists, then discontinue use and seek advice from either the Trio Customer Service helpline or your Stoma Care nurse. You may wish to patch test the product before use, by placing it on another area of the body to see if skin irritation occurs away from the stoma site.
How does the price compare to my current product - does it cost more?

For individual product pricing, you can speak to our Customer Service team or your local distributor.

No. None of the Trio® silicone product range contains any alcohol or latex.
