ConvaTec Launches Ostomysecrets® in Europe

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Stylish and functional ostomy apparel – designed by ostomates for ostomates –        
now available in the United Kingdom, Germany and Italy

Skillman, NJ — January 14, 2014 — European ostomates can now experience a new sense of freedom and confidence with the launch of Ostomysecrets® eCommerce web sites offering stylish and functional apparel in the United Kingdom, Germany and Italy.  

The new Ostomysecrets® eCommerce sites provide a modern online shopping and lifestyle destination for ostomates, and feature a full line of undergarments and swimwear designed to conceal and support ostomy pouches.  The innovative apparel line is available for men and women in a wide range of sizes, fresh colors and fantastic fabrics with endless style – to meet every day, intimate and athletic needs.

Ostomysecrets® was founded by Lisa Becker, a young mother who was not satisfied with the intimate apparel – for everyday use – available to her as a new ostomate.  After just 6 years, she has built a successful business in the US, staffed completely by fellow ostomates. With backing from ConvaTec, the business has grown from a single owner operator working out of a garage to a dedicated team of sales consultants, product designers and marketing professionals.

“Ostomysecrets® represents a lifestyle and a philosophy focused on freedom, confidence and inspiration for ostomates.  Our apparel, designed by ostomates for ostomates, is a symbol of that philosophy,” says Becker.

To see what merchandise is available for men and women, please visit one of the new European web sites at www.ostomysecrets.co.uk, www.ostomysecrets.de or www.ostomysecrets.it. Visitors to the site can also sign up for special offers and communications.
