Alginate dressing impregnated with 100% Manuka honey
Algivon is a soft alginate dressing impregnated with 100% medical grade Manuka honey. The alginate fibers enable a sustained, slower release of honey. Algivon is an ideal choice for wetter wounds as the alginate has a small capacity to absorb, meaning the honey isn’t washed away with exudate therefore staying at the wound site for longer. The dressing is very soft and conformable, ideal for cavities, and debriding and desloughing large areas of necrotic and sloughy tissue.
- Protects the wound bed and provides a moist wound-healing environment
- Aids in the reduction of bioburden
- Promotes granulation and epithelialization
- Osmotic effect, drawing harmful tissue away from the wound bed
Available in 10cm x 10cm dressing
Tip: Algivon is great for packing sinuses/cavities. It’s also absorbent, making it great for wetter wounds as the honey stays at the wound site for longer.
