Actolind® Gel Plus is a protective moisturizing and conditioning gel used in conjunction with medical devices such as dressings, dressing pads, pads and wound fillers for acute or chronic wounds and first and second degree burns.
Due to its unique combination of ingredients, Actolind® Gel Plus forms a thin protective film layer on the applied area, which contributes to wound healing by preventing adhesion of microorganisms and keeping the wound surface clean and constantly moist. Actolind® Gel Plus fills the space between the dressing and the wound surface and minimizes dressing adhesion to the wound surface by preventing dehydration. Thus, Actolind® Gel Plus helps to shorten the period of the healing process by keeping the wound stable.
