Efficacy of gels based on extra virgin olive oil to treat the skin in patients with a digestive stoma

Tests conducted as part of a pilot study show that these cosmetics are more effective in maintaining skin integrity in these patients than products commonly used for this purpose . Thus, the study carried out by researchers from the University of Jaén (UJA) and the University of Granada (UGR), with the collaboration of the company < em>Notaliv Cosmética Natural and nurses in charge of ostomy consultations at Virgen de las Nieves Hospital and San Cecilio University a demonstrated the effectiveness of using gels based on Extra Virgin Olive Oil to treat peristomal skin in patients with digestive ostomy, to maintain intact or slightly damaged skin in these people.

Patients with a digestive ostomy are those who undergo a small surgical opening in the abdomen to facilitate the evacuation of urine and stool . These patients require the use of a bag that is attached to the skin to facilitate bowel movements. These cases occur in patients with cancer of the colon or rectum, and also in patients with inflammatory bowel disease or trauma.

These evacuation devices usually have a disk that is attached to the skin and from which hangs a bag to collect feces and urine that are evacuated through the opening . The researchers point out that the skin that presses on the disc (peristomal) is a very vulnerable and submissive skin, not only because of the adhesion of the disc itself, but also because it leaks sometimes during evacuation.

Therefore, the importance of caring for and maintaining the integrity of the peristomal skin to prevent its deterioration, as up to 80% of women with a stoma end up have a skin complication. These complications greatly affect the patient’s quality of life, and represent a significant cost for the health system.

It was generally recommended not to use greasy products to treat peristomal skin, as it was thought that this could complicate the adhesion of the disc, so olive oil Extra Virgin has been excluded. However, patients who, despite these recommendations, used cosmetics made with olive oil did not experience complications.

Gels based on olive oil

This while the group of researchers contacted the company Notaliv, which specializes in natural cosmetics based on olive oil, and made a bath gel with Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil to carry out the aforementioned study, since organic oils have more antioxidant properties and are beneficial to the body. Using this gel, the group carried out a comparative pilot study on 21 patients. Eleven of them used this gel and nine used other cosmetic products that did not contain Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

According to the research team, the results showed, firstly, that this gel is a safe product to treat the skin of ostomate patients, since none of the patients reported any complications in the use of the gel with respect to disc adhesion. And second, there are indications that cosmetics with Extra Virgin Olive Oil are more effective in maintaining peristomal skin integrity in these patients than the usual products used for this purpose.< /p>

The researcher from the University of Jaén specifies that they are cosmetic and not pharmacological gels, so their effectiveness is focused on maintaining of the peristomal skin when it is in an intact or slightly deteriorated state, which corresponds to the profile of the people included in the trial. Thus, this study is to open the door to the use of Extra Virgin Olive Oil based cosmetics, and the next steps in this line of research will focus on expanding the study sample, to demonstrate these results in a larger number of patients.
