I ran into this website 2 days ago. A new product line and giving free samples to try. 
www.VitusOstomy.com. 
I got mine today! Very fast I must say! 2 full size 8 oz lubricating deodorant drops, full box of adhesive remover wipes and some rings. They have other things too. 
just thought I’d pass it on.

Nice find! I've added them to my free samples page.

You got a very generous collection of free samples! Did you have to pay for shipping or anything?

@veganostomy no I did not pay anything. At first I thought the form did not go through so I took a photo of their number but then forgot about it. 2 days after filling the form the samples arrived.

@jrachr This is unfortunate, but expected.

Best to stick with Canadian suppliers or manufacturers with Canadian offices if you want samples.

So sorry that some of you can’t try them. I should have thought about that. For those that can get them, they are a good product. The adhesive remover does seem to have alcohol in it but I need that sometimes anyhow. The deodorant is just lovely! It doesn’t have that string perfume smell like some of the others.  I’m liking them thus far.

No need to apologize! About 50% of the traffic here comes from the US, and it would be impossible to cover every country when it comes to samples or purchasing products, so whoever can get them, get them! 😉

I’ve tried a few samples but haven’t found a pouching system that works as well for me as the Hollister 2-piece that the ostomy nurse started me out with at the hospital. One thing she didn’t mention was M9 - I don’t know how I stumbled across that but decided to buy a bottle (Hollister told me they didn’t have sample sizes of M9), and it made such a difference; life-changing, really.

I love the smell of coffee in the morning. It smells like .... victory.

@llholiday I love M9!! I always have 2 bottles on hand. When I first got my Ostomy I was at a stoma nurse visit and I was complaining about smell and she left the room and came back in with a full size bottle to give to me. I’ve been using it ever since. Safe n simple is pretty good too but M9 is my first choice.
