How does the Alginate Wound and burn dressing work?
The honey is impregnated into a calcium alginate dressing. Then, as the wound fluid, blood, or tissue enters the dressing, the honey is released, the dressing absorbs and forms a gel, creating an optimal honey healing environment. Wound dressings are easily removed without disrupting the wound bed.
Medihoney is considered a global leader of medical grade honey products for the management of wounds and burns.
