How it works
CLEANWND® cloths are impregnated with sodium hyaluronate and phospholipids:
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a major component of the extracellular matrix of the skin and plays an important role in the metabolism of the dermis. It has a key position in wound healing and tissue repair processes owing to its ability to maintain a humid environment favorable to healing and the stimulation of growth factors, cellular constituents, and the migration of various cells essential for healing. ¹ Article in SKINmed 15(6):441-448 .

Phospholipid The Phospholipid in CLEANWND® acts as a surfactant to provide cleansing and also protection by replacing some of the phospholipid lost by the damaged and fragile tissue. A reduction in infection and increase in granulation tissue have been observed in pressure ulcers and venous leg ulcers when wound cleansing products containing phospholipids have been used in conjunction with standard wound care. ² The Turkish Anaesthesiology and Reanimation Association: Report Registration No: 638 Ref: 13FC7116 – DE69 – 4486 – 8A71 – B946A40E15DE 11 October 2011 Presentation Code: (P – 449)
Both play an integral part of supporting the effectiveness of CLEANWND® and providing proven debridement and cleansing.
CLEANWND® also contains Aloe Vera gel to aid with debridement and cleansing.
