WoundSeal Powder is a topical powder that forms an instant scab when it comes in contact with blood. The ingredients are a hydrophilic polymer and potassium ferrate. In combination with manual pressure to the wound, the powder quickly forms a strong scab that completely covers the wound and stops the bleeding. WoundSeal Powder is not a vasoconstrictor or a cauterizing agent, is not biologically derived and is non-toxic.
Use WoundSeal Powder on external wounds that have blood, such as cuts, skin tears, avulsions and nosebleeds. If sutures are required, the protective scab that forms may be removed by a medical professional by soaking it with saline solution and gently scraping it off. The powder must be totally irrigated off the wound prior to applying sutures.
No. WoundSeal is a powder wound dressing that works by combining with blood and forming an instant, protective seal/scab. It is not a cauterizing agent and doesn’t burn or damage tissue.
The product is hypoallergenic. No allergic reactions have been reported.
Since WoundSeal Powder does not depend on the blood’s natural clotting mechanism to be effective, it can be used by people who bleed easily or have think skin.
Yes. WoundSeal Powder does not depend on the blood’s natural clotting mechanisms to be effective, so it will work on people who bleed easily.
After pouring the WoundSeal Powder onto the wound, apply pressure with your fingers for 30 seconds to ensure the powder combines with the blood to create a protective scab. If there is no further bleeding, gently dust off any excess powder without disturbing the scab. The scab will fall off on its own when the wound has healed.
Apply as much WoundSeal Powder as it takes to completely cover the wound and any blood around it. Ensure that there is a layer of dry powder on the top of the wound before applying pressure.
Generally, one application of WoundSeal Powder should be enough to cover a 2 inch laceration; however, if the laceration is deep or severe and blood flow is significant, an additional application may be needed.
For wounds with ample blood present you should feel no discomfort. However, for wounds like abrasions, where there is little blood present, a temporary warming sensation might be felt depending on the location and severity of the wound.
Yes, WoundSeal Powder will instantly form a protective scab/seal that adheres to the wound, even if the skin is moist with perspiration.
No, it is important to keep the protective scab clean and dry until it has hardened (usually in one to two hours). Once the seal/scab has hardened, the treated area can get wet or submerged in water (i.e., showering or swimming.)
No, the protective scab will fall off naturally when the wound is healed. As with a natural scab, this may take some time.
You can cover the wound if desired, but the scab will allow nothing into the wound, including germs and dirt.
No, it is recommended to apply WoundSeal Powder without the use of creams or ointments.
No, the powder is moisture sensitive. Once it is exposed to air, it must be used or discarded.
Unlike other products on the market, WoundSeal Powder does not stain or scar the skin.
