How our colostomy bag liners came to be.

As they say – necessity is the mother of invention – and this is exactly how Colo-Majic® was created. Our company was founded in 1996 by Doug Wolrich with the invention of the first disposable colostomy bag liner. The liner had to be made of very soft and thin plastic that could be flushable and tolerated by the sewage system as we know it. In order to make the liner Doug first used a heated pizza cutter and a screen door wheel, together with other tools that he cut from soup cans, to seal the edges.

Once a few colostomy bag liners had been made Doug and his wife took a trip to Korea to source materials. The product passed testing and the first box of 300 colostomy bag liners was made in February 1997.
