Derma Medihoney Barrier Cream 50g - Pack of 2
About this deal
Apply the MEDIHONEY gel or paste directly to the wound. If you’re using a calcium alginate dressing, use sterile scissors to resize it, and then gently apply the dressing to the wound bed. MEDIHONEY is different from regular honey in several ways. For one, it’s only produced by bees that pollinate the Manuka flower, a species of tea tree native to New Zealand.
MedihoneyBarrier Cream can be applied to intact and at-risk skin to provide protection from body fluids and moisture. It can be applied around wounds and under skin folds, wound dressings and incontinence pads where a protective barrier will help prevent skin breakdown. Indications for use: Medihoney is a barrier cream which helps to maintain the skin's barrier properties. It is specially formulated with a range of natural ingredients and is used to soothe and settle at-risk or irritated skin. The adhesive tapes cannot be applied on top of Medihoney cream. InstructionsMEDIHONEY looks similar in appearance and texture to traditional store-bought honey, but it’s not a sweetener. Instead, it provides an all-natural way to treat open wounds, preventing gangrene and infection. Often, wounds that have progressed carry a malodorous smell. MEDIHONEY has also been shown to decrease odors that may accompany wounds. Normal skin has a naturally acidic protective mantle. The acid mantle helps to hydrate the skin by protecting it from drying and from harmful bacteria. Skin ailments such as eczema and dermatitis are linked to a disrupted acid mantle with subsequent colonisation by bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus. The use of Medihoney Barrier Cream helps maintain the skin’s protective pH. Medihoney skin care products contain medical grade Antibacterial Honey. Advanced biomedical research has identified specific plants that produce honey with exceptional antibacterial activity. The antibacterial activity of honey differs according to the plant species and may vary enormously within any one species. Medihoney Antibacterial Honey™ is a standardised antibacterial honey, predominantly Leptospermum sp. selected for its broad range of antibacterial actions.
During autolysis the body breaks down tissue or cells. A moist environment, created by ALH dressings, aids the body’s own process of moisturizing and re-hydrating, thus loosening and liquefying necrotic tissue.
