Medihoney Wound Gel is an alternative approach to wound healing and is a great all-rounder for the first-aid kit. Medihoney Wound Gel is a sterile product which creates an optimal environment for the healing of minor wounds. The easy to apply gel creates a moist, low pH environment that supports wound healing. The moist environment protects the new tissue from reinjury when changing the dressing.
Medihoney Wound Gel is suitable for use on minor wounds, burns, cuts, grazes, blisters, scratches, tears and abrasions.
Comvita supplies medical grade Manuka Honey to our trusted and long term manufacturer of Medihoney Wound Care, Derma Sciences. Derma Sciences are a tissue regeneration company based in North America who specialise in the research and innovation of wound care.
Medihoney Wound Gel is made of 80% medical grade Manuka Honey combined with natural wax and oils to provide a high viscosity gel that is easy to apply and easy to wash off when dressings are changed. Medihoney Wound Gel can be used throughout the healing process.
All of the products in the Comvita Medihoney® range contain medical grade Manuka Honey, which is a standardised grade of antibacterial Leptospermum sp. (Manuka) Honey as specified by scientific research.
The earliest record of therapeutic honey use dates as far back as 2000 B.C. Honey has been used as a healing substance throughout history by the ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Hindu and Chinese cultures.
Prepare the affected area by cleaning the wound and thoroughly drying the surrounding skin. Apply a generous quantity of Wound Gel directly onto the wound or an appropriate dressing. Secure the dressing to the area and regularly monitor the wound. Always read the label. Use only as directed.
WARNING:Serious wounds should be managed under the supervision of a healthcare professional. Do not use on individuals who have had an allergic reaction to honey.
Claude Stratford and Alan Bougen established their Paengaroa company in 1974 with a commitment to help people maintain good health. Their original vision of people living healthy lives through a connection to pure natural products still holds firm today. Comvita is one of New Zealand's major producers of high-quality Manuka Honey and honey products.
Comvita forms strong relationships with independent beekeepers based in remote areas of the central North Island and Northland. Using modern technology, all of Comvita's honeys can be traced back to the source ensuring transparency and purity. From the beehive to the quality end product, caring for the environment and being sustainable are part of Comvita’s philosophy and production practices.
Being a member of the Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association means Comvita’s honey is independently tested and graded. This compliance guarantees that their Manuka Honey has the special compounds required to certify a pure product with many health providing benefits.
