Principelle Matrix

Principelle Matrix is a next generation sterile composite hydrogel wound dressing. Its design is based on a naturally occurring bioactive process. Mimicking this process synthetically allowed for a close match to the complex processes that take place in chronic wounds.

The principle of optimal biocompatibility through intelligent designs has been used for implants and other applications. It is relatively new in wound care. Chronic or therapy resistant wounds characteristically show a disturbed balance in the amounts of exudate, proteins, ions, microbial load and the intricate relationship and function between these elements. Principelle Matrix dressings with bioactive properties modulate proteins and ions. The product mimicks the behaviour of certain macromolecules (polysaccharides) naturally present in the human body. These elements have a diverse function:

•Stabilise growth factors and cytokines
•Regulate proteases
•Modulate the inflammation reaction

Principelle Matrix is a hydrated, superabsorbing copolymer (presence of various kinds of polymers) dressing. The unique design allows for an unparallelled capacity to hydrate and absorb within one dressing. This function is a perfect match to the moisture needs of the human skin. At present, two types are available: Principelle Matrix 10x10cm. Principelle Matrix Border (skin-friendly adhesive border; island size 6.8×6.8cm)

Principelle Matrix dressings consist of three active layers:
•Highly breathable PU Film
•Superabsorbent Gel Polymer
•Skin-facing Matrix Layer

Supervised by a healthcare professional the product can be applied to treat acute and chronic wounds(non-infected), or wounds with a low microbial load.

The border-version fixates the dressing with a skin-friendly adhesive transparent layer. The non-border version can be applied to larger wounds and is usually fixated with gauze.

Principelle IF

Principelle IF® is a sterile wound dressing, comprising an inert acetate substrate impregnated with an ointment containing a blend of trace elements and medical grade honey. The formulation for dressings contains no synthetic components. Minerals, trace elements, and oxides are directly blended with medical grade dark buckwheat honey.

iCare – Intelligent Care: Natural Intervention in Protease Activity and pH. Medical grade honey based Ionogen Formulation.
Chronic wounds are stuck in a non-resolved cycle arising from imbalances in the levels and activity associated with moisture, proteins, ions, and bacteria. Contamination and infection further complicate healing. Some wounds (deep wounds, cavities) only allow for the application of liquid solutions. Appropriate natural components intervene to achieve protease and pH modulation. Altering the woundbed conditions and environment guides chronic wounds back to appropriate stages of healing.

Principelle IF® is a sterile wound dressing, comprising an inert acetate substrate impregnated with an ointment containing a blend of trace elements and medical grade honey. The formulation contains no synthetic components. Minerals, trace elements and oxides are directly blended with medical grade dark buckwheat honey. The formulation is gradually released onto the wound surface after dressing application. Products are sterilised by Gamma radiation. The process of mixing components is done to an unusual high standard.

Principelle IF® medical grade honey wound dressing is indicated for the treatment of acute and chronic wounds, including contaminated and infected wounds. It may be used on moderatelyexuding, lightly exuding and dry wounds. With a suitable secondary dressing it can also be used on heavily exuding wounds. Depending on the wound type it may be covered by traditional dressings, a special film dressing, a foam or alginate dressing, or Principelle Matrix.

MelMax

MelMax® is a sterile, inert wound dressing impregnated with a metal-ion formulation and medical grade buckwheat honey specifically selected for medical use. The blend of trace elements (metal ions) normally also occurs in wound exudate and in the woundbed. The formulation aids regulation of MMP production in the wound bed.

MelMax® is a sterile, inert wound dressing impregnated with a metal ion formulation and medical grade buckwheat honey specifically selected for medical use. The blend of trace elements (metal ions) normally also occurs in wound exudate and in the woundbed.

Buckwheat honey is a rich source of phenolic compounds shown to be responsible for superior anti-oxidant activity; pH modulation is the basis for a cascade of regulatory processes bringing contaminated and chronic wounds back to appropriate stages of healing.

MelMax medical grade honey-based wound dressings are indicated for contaminated and infected wounds:
•Acute wounds (burns, post-operative and trauma wounds)
•Chronic wounds (ulcus cruris, diabetic and pressure ulcers)

MelMax dressings contain medical grade dark buckwheat honey and a metal ionformulation. Acting together they:
•Regulate bacterial contamination
•Regulate enzymatic balance
•Decrease the influence of reactive oxygen species

Medical grade honey as an antibacterial agent

Medical grade honey supports woundhealing: it is a powerful bacteria-regulating agent; reduces the inflammation reaction; stimulates autolytic debridement; enhances cellular growth; reduces the formation of scar tissue; neutralises odour and has strong anti-oxidant properties.

The metal ion formulation regulates the MMP balance in the wound bed by means of pH modulation.

This is a requirement for a coordinated process during formation of the extracellulair matrix and reduces the production of reactive oxygen species. The metal ion formulation assists the healing process preventingchronic wounds from stalling.

Celan

Celan® is a medical grade honey based skin care ointment which contains active herbal ingredients with proven biological activity. For superficial skin problems such as eczema,
redness, itches or desquamation (flaky skin).

Celan is a new skin care product with active botanical extracts. General complaints about itching, irritation, or pain occur from time to time. This can be around wound edges, underneath adhesive dressing borders, or elsewhere. The cause of this discomfort or condition of the skin may be unknown. Principelle undertakes tests to determine if the product is useful on such skin disorders as eczema and psoriasis.

Celan is a multifunctional cream applicable to all types of skin. The product can be used on facial skin, avoiding contact with the eyes. The medical grade honey has strong antioxidant properties. In combination with botanical extracts it offers relief to irritated skin. The airless dispenser is easy and hygienic. It allows for appropriate measurement avoiding contamination.

Propionylacetovanillonum. A non steroid anti-inflammatory plant component. It is adapted to penetrate the skin.
•Clove bud oil. This is a natural analgesic and antiseptic because of the main component eugenol.
•Balloon-vine extract. It has anti-inflammatory properties and it reduces skin problems such as eczema, redness and desquamation.
•Paenolum. This active component is derived from the bark of the Paeonia Suffruticosa. It is a pain-reducing component, known to prevent blood platelet clotting, slows down lipid-peroxidation and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Carefully cleanse the area with water or a mild lotion and dry gently. Apply a thin layer of Celan avoiding rubbing. Itchy patches or wound edges should be treated several times daily or at least at every dressing change.

Do not use on open wounds or burns. Store at room temperature (15-25°C). Does not contain parabens, perfumes, or colouring agents. Avoid contact with the eyes.

We are a small group offering our services to those companies and individuals with advanced quality products, novel ideas, or different approaches aimed to accomplish something in a more effective or efficient way.

Most often our contribution is minor, other times we have more impact. This is not because we would lack ambition; it stems from realism. We have learned that to make a difference one needs a different way of thinking. Representing someone or something, trading a product across different lands, adding quality and create value, bridging differences in background and culture, these are all dependent on a willingness to meet, communicate and understand others. In principle we do so from a sovereign position.
