Medihoney Gel is a mixture of Leptospermum Honey and vegetable esters that act as natural gelling agents. This combination creates a thicker ointment for more stability when applied to wound beds. While, the gel can be used for many wounds, it works best on superficial to full thickness wounds.
Medihoney wound gel has Leptospermum honey gel that increases the healing rate of wounds because it has a low pH value. This low pH value reduces the pH value of the wound. Medihoney gel ointment also has a high osmotic potential that pulls fluid from deeper cells and tissues to the wound bed. This promotes healing through the autolytic debridement process. During this process, tissues and cells are broken down in an attempt to moisturize the wound, so the dead tissue is liquefied and removed.
To protect the wound bed while healing, you will want a secondary dressing such as the Mepilex border dressing.
Medihoney wound gel is purified to be used in the treatment of wounds without risk of infection.
