Product Information

Cleansing is a vital component of wound care. Cleansing a wound helps remove debris and germs that impair the healing process. Cleansers are solutions used to cleanse a wound. They can be antimicrobial or non-antimicrobial. Non-antimicrobial cleansers are free of chemicals known as antiseptics and antibiotics. Antiseptics and antibiotics slow down the growth of germs but may also compromise the wound healing process. Thus, latest clinical research recommends cleaning wounds with high quality (drinkable) water, sterile water or saline solutions.
