Medihoney HoneyColloid is a leptospermum hydrocolloid dressing manufactured by Derma Sciences for treating lightly draining pressure ulcers, skin tears, and to cover or fill a partial to full thickness wound. Two versions of the Medihoney Hydrocolloid Dressings are available—Medihoney Adhesive Dressing designed for pressure ulcers and skin tears and the Medihoney Non-Adhesive Dressing designed for covering or filling a partial to full thickness wound. Both versions absorb light to moderate amounts of exudates. The Honeycolloid pad will form a gel as it warms up from body temperature and as it comes into contact with wound fluid.

Medihoney is honey derived from the pollen and nectar of a specific Leptospermum species of plant in New Zealand and Australia. Leptospermum is unique among all types of honey in that it maintains its effectiveness as a Wound Dressing even in the presence of wound fluid. Leptospermum is the only species of honey that has been shown in randomized controlled studies to help wounds that have stalled under first-line treatment to progress towards healing.
Medihoney is available in four separate options in addition to Medihoney Gel. These other options are displayed below:
- Medihoney Gel with 80% Active Leptospermum Honey
- Medihoney Paste with 100% Active Leptospermum Honey
- Medihoney HCS with 63% Active Leptospermum Honey
- Medihoney Calcium Alginate with 95% Active Leptospermum Honey
