Care Touch Silver Alginate Wound Dressing is made with alginate fibers, derived from seaweed, and silver for ultra accelerated healing. The silver helps to fight unwanted bacteria and germs to reduce the risk of infection. When absorbing exudates, our dressing forms a protective gel-like covering to ensure a sterile environment. The gel-silver combination helps to prevent the wound from drying out and does not adhere to any abrasions or wounds. Each box contains five (5) individually wrapped, sterile gauze (Size: 4. 3 x 4. 3).
