A match of hydrating and absorbing properties
The match of hydrating and absorbing properties (1) supports natural autolytic debridement and moist wound healing (2).
Easy to apply
The applicator ensures a controlled, easy and aseptic application using just one hand. The gel can be removed by rinsing.
Minimised leakage and maceration
The viscous texture of the gel makes it stay in place, and even after absorption of debris and exudate the gel will remain cohesive and counteract leakage and maceration.
Mode of action
Purilon® gel hydrates necrotic tissue and absorbs excess exudate, slough and debris from the wound.
Purilon® gel consists of purified water, sodium carboxymethylcellulose, and calcium alginate. Purilon® is a very gentle product since the gel consists of natural ingredients without any additives.
Purilon® gel is indicated for dry and sloughy necrotic wounds as well as wounds with a mix of necrotic and granulated tissue such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, non-infected diabetic foot ulcers, and it may be used on 1st and 2nd degree burns. The gel may be used throughout the healing process to provide a moist healing environment. Purilon® gel should be used in conjunction with a secondary dressing.
