Ostomy deodorant

What kinds of deodorant do you guys use in your pouch? I have an ileostomy...

My fav is Sani-Zone drops by Anacapa Technologies. I joke that it smells like industrial-strength floor cleaner but it has by far been the best I've tried. It is kind of hard to find though.

M-9 by Hollister has never done much for me, plus it's blue and will stain if you get it on your clothes I didn't think Adapt (by Convatec I think) did much either.

My personal favorite is the Coloplast Brava Lubricating Deodorant.

http://veganostomy.blogspot.com/2013...deodorant.html

It gives a light scent that is reminiscent of shampoo. I've tried several other products which claim to eliminate odor without leaving a scent, but they never worked quite as well.

You should be able to get samples of just about every type of deodorant if you contact each manufacturer.

Na'Scent didn't work for me, but I've heard so many great things about, so if you can get samples, go for it!

I'd be interested to hear about the cleaner too. Seems like a multi-purpose product.

I use the green alcohol free listerine. I think it's mint but probably any will do. Experiment a bit and if it doesn't work you have mouthwash lol.

Thank you NOGUTSNOGLORY!

Listerine ZERO is wonderful! It smells wonderful and is very cheap compared to some of the ostomy specific products.

Mahalo!

Excellent I'm happy that it works for you. I try not to use it at night since when laying down contents sit over stoma and I'm not sure if that's good but otherwise during the day it's a great option.
