Benefits of HemoStyp®
HemoStyp® is an all-natural product comprised of regenerated oxidized cellulose gauze which is specifically formulated to speed the process of hemostasis (clotting) when positioned on a cut or wound. Unlike the other products in the wound care market, HemoStyp® contains no potentially harmful chemicals or animal byproducts and is hypoallergenic.Once it has completed its task, it is easily removed by dissolving it in water or saline solution. This method of removal neither disturbs the clotted surface nor encourages re-bleeding, which is a significant problem with traditional gauze products.
