A special type of honey indigenous to New Zealand, called Active Leptospermum (or Manuka) honey. Active Leptospermum Honey has been shown to have several properties which assist in promoting an optimal healing environment. It has a low pH, and has been shown to help lower the overall wound pH, which is beneficial to chronic wounds. The honey is also highly osmotic, which assists in debridement and keeping the wound bed clean. Medihoney is indicated for use on lightly to moderately exuding wounds, or wounds that are difficult to manage due to their odd shape or placement on the body. This non-toxic dressing can be used as a cornerstone for wound bed preparation and throughout all the phases of wound healing.
