Karaya ostomy powder is most often used on open or denuded skin, the powder provides an absorptive and protective layer, allowing the wet skin to dry before applying the baseplate.  K-Gum (karaya gum powder) is a remarkable powder that absorbs moisture in open, weepy, skin and promotes granulation in open wounds.  Karaya powder is made from the highest quality karaya gum powder available and has the highest standards of uniformity, cleanliness, and performance.

Karaya is plant based and a natrual hydrocolloid. It has excellent skin care properties.

How To Use Karaya Powder:

  • After bathing, pat dry the peri-stomal skin (skin around the stoma)

  • Dust K-Gum stoma powder onto skin peri-stomal skin that is red or irritated. Karaya will protect raw and weeping skin by creating a sticky gel.  Let powder dry or crust

  • Apply the skin barrier/ostomy appliance as normal
