keragel® is a thick hydrogel rich in keratin protein that delivers Replicine™ Functional Keratin® to the wound while maintaining a moisture rich environment.
keragel® is designed for full and partial thickness wounds with dry to medium exudate, such as:
- Venous leg ulcers
- Arterial ulcers
- Diabetic ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Skin graft donor sites
- First and second degree burns
- Superficial injuries, cuts, abrasions and surgical wounds
Improved Wound Healing
keragel® has demonstrated faster epithelialization rates and more robust skin after healing in numerous clinical studies. In vitro studies have shown that Replicine™ Functional Keratin® increases the rates of proliferation and migration of keratinocyte cells (which play a key role in epithelialization) and that the migrating keratinocytes express increased levels of collagen 4 and collagen 7 which are critical for basal membrane integrity.
This means keragel® can speed healing, improve the healed outcome and reduce cost of care in the following treatment areas:
- Chronic Wound Care
- Scar Management
- Burn Treatment
- Skin Tears
Keragel® should be stored in dry conditions between 32 degrees and 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
