WoundSeal Powder is a topical powder that forms an instant scab when it comes in contact with blood. The ingredients are a non-toxic mixture of a hydrophilic polymer and potassium ferrate. When poured on a wound and upon contact with blood or exudate, 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 and avulsions. 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. WoundSeal Powder must be
irrigated off the wound prior to applying sutures.
No – The powder is a 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.
WoundSeal has passed all FDA-required safety and biocompatibility tests, and there are no known interactions with other medication.
Yes – WoundSeal Powder does not depend on the blood’s natural clotting mechanisms to be effective, so it will work for people who bleed easily.

Apply as much WoundSeal Powder as it takes to completely cover the wound and any blood around it.
For wounds with ample blood present there should be no discomfort felt at all. 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.
We recommend applying the powder directly from the dispenser onto the wound. For difficult-to-reach areas, the applicator should be used to
most effectively apply the powder.
Yes – the 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.
You can cover the wound if you wish but the scab will protect the wound site and allow nothing into the wound, including germs and dirt.
No – it is recommended to apply the powder without the use of creams or ointments.
No – the powder is moisture sensitive and packaged as “single use”. Once it is exposed to air, it must be used within a few minutes or discarded.
Unlike other products on the market, the powder does not stain or scar the skin.
WoundSeal has a shelf life of 2 1/2 years from date of manufacture.
Yes – Biolife has conducted many studies on the powder.
