Vera SA Ostomy Underwear a Proud Partner of CANSA

Do you or a loved one have a stoma pouch? Do you need support?

Vera SA – a proud partner of CANSA – has you covered!

Vera SA is excited to announce their recent partnership with CANSA and the inclusion of Vera’s ostomy men and women’s underwear range for stoma wearers (colostomy, urostomy or ileostomy) at CANSA Care Centres in Pretoria, Bloemfontein, Durban, and Cape Town. Vera SA is giving CANSA 25% of sales done through CANSA.

Natalie Mascall, founder of Vera SA and a stoma pouch wearer herself, had the pleasure of meeting Adele Burger, General Manager Stoma and Wellness Programme, and Trysie Havenga, Stoma Administrator, and demonstrated how Vera SA underwear functions. “Because a colostomy bag is designed to stick onto the abdomen where it collects waste it can sometimes cause irritation to the skin and can be visible under certain clothing,” explains Natalie.

“Our unique range of men’s briefs and women’s panties stylishly conceal and discreetly support ostomy pouches. Crafted from super soft imported fabric for a fit that feels like second skin, our smooth style, and stretchy underwear lies flat against your body, giving a good fit that will stay in place all day.”

The fabric is lightweight, breathable, and moisture-wicking – suitable for even the most sensitive skin. The hidden stoma pouch prevents rubbing, irritation, or inflammation, and reduces the possibility of detachment or leaks, keeping you feeling carefree all day. Vera SA underwear is also suitable to wear while sleeping and helps prevent the bag from shifting, creasing, or curling.

All stoma products, accessories, and linen savers can be purchased at reduced prices at most local CANSA Care Centres, while Vera SA Ostomy Underwear can be purchased online or at the designated Care Centres mentioned above.
