One Product, Three Actions:
- Cleans: naturally cleans the wound of bacteria, dead tissue, dirt and debris by drawing it into the dressing.
- Protects: reduces the risk of infection through the creation of a physical barrier.
- Heals: creates a moist, low pH environment that supports healing.
Medihoney Wound Gel is an alternative approach to wound healing and is a great all-rounder for the first-aid kit. Medihoney Wound Gel is a sterile product which creates an optimal environment for the healing of minor wounds. The easy to apply gel creates a moist, low pH environment that supports wound healing. The moist environment protects the new tissue from reinjury when changing the dressing.
Medihoney Wound Gel is suitable for use on minor wounds, burns, cuts, grazes, blisters, scratches, tears and abrasions.
