OstoSolutions Ostomy Pouch Disposal Seal – REVIEW

OstoSolutions Logo

Disposing of a soiled ostomy pouch can be a challenge, especially if you aren’t at home.

The plastic disposal bags that come with our appliances don’t really lock away odor, and I’ve even tried putting my pouches in scented disposal bags, but odor eventually comes out.  

OstoSolutions has come up with a novel way of making this task a little easier through their Ostomy Pouch Disposal Seal.  

Disclosure: This review is based on my experience from using samples requested from OstoSolutions.

The Ostomy Pouch Disposal Seal (which I’ll refer to as “the seal”), is basically a plastic disk which fits your specific two-piece ostomy pouch.

It creates an odor-proof seal, which allows you to throw away your pouch without having to worry about odor or leaks. It’s a simple idea, but it works extremely well.

In my “confidence test”, I had taken off a pouch that was half full, and applied the seal to it.  

Not wanting to simply throw it away, I decided to leave it on my desk overnight to see just how well it works.  

The results? No odor and no leaks(FORTUNATELY!).  

I was impressed to say the least, and had I needed to change my pouch in the car or away from a washroom, I know the seal would have bought me enough time to find a place to properly dispose of the pouch.

Now, I tested these seals on the Coloplast Sensura Click pouches (both a closed-ended and drainable) and I did have some trouble engaging the lock on the pouch, but the seal was still tight and posed no problems.  

In fact, without locking the pouch, the seal fits just as it would with other pouch brands that don’t have a locking system.

I can see these seals becoming extremely valuable to someone with a colostomy who may need to do a quick pouch change on-the-fly.  

OstoSolutions has a few great videos showing typical scenarios where you’d use their seals.  

As you can see from the one below, it’s incredibly convenient:

Because these seals are a single solid piece of plastic, you can easily keep a few in your vehicle, purse, ostomy EDC bag or office without having to worry about it.

At the time of this writing (Jan 2022), the OstoSolutions Ostomy Pouch Disposal Seals sell for US$30 and you get 30 in a box.

OstoSolutions does offer a refill subscription along with a one-time purchase option. You’d have to check with your insurance provider to see if they would cover these seals.  

You order the correct size depending on the brand and pouch size (the size of your coupling ring), which options for Coloplast, Convatec and Hollister currently being offered.

Currently, shipping is offered internationally.


Because of their convenience and effectiveness, I’d recommend the OstoSolutions seals to anyone who may need to change their pouch at inopportune times.

And even if you’re at home, it’ll take care of odor if your garbage pickup comes infrequently (ours gets picked up every other week).  

Colostomates would benefit more than ileostomates, since they would tend to use closed-ended pouches and replace them less often.

OstoSolutions does not recommend these seals for urostomy pouch disposal. I would also add that if you have loose or liquid output, empty your pouch before using the seal, since you don’t want any spilling out when you remove your pouch.

  1. This product is the best invention since peanut butter. I can’t believe I didn’t see the review until last month. I use a Hollister closed pouch and I now use these every time I change. It has eliminated the need for individual plastic bags. It virtually eliminates the odor. I can now leave the full pouches in my disposal can for a couple of days before I dump them in my big garbage. Yes, they are a little spendy but well worth it. REALLY well worth it.
