ChitoCare® medical contains natural chitosan, a safe bioactive polymer harvested from the pristine waters around Iceland. Chitosan consists of amino sugars which occur naturally in the human body, and therefore has excellent biocompatibility. Available in both gel and spray format for more effective usage.

Why chitosan? Chitosan is a functional polysaccharide providing support and under mild acidic conditions it becomes positively charged, rendering it bioadhesive to adhere as a protective film to intact or breached skin and to confer many other important biological properties. Chitosan is a true wonder from the sea as it protects the skin, reduces redness and irritation with its cooling effect, maintains moisture and promotes the skin's natural repair process.

CHITOCARE® medical  products are intended for contact with skin and wounds – intact, breached and compromised surface. Both forms of the products, the gel and spray, protect the skin and wounds against infections, and help reduce bleeding and scarring. They soothe the symptoms associated with various skin conditions.

ChitoCare® medical  can be applied to suit any skin area or wound shape and will dry into a thin, transparent and breathable film to protect the skin or wounded area, relieve inflammation, itching and pain by its cooling effect, maintain a proper micro-environment for rapid and natural healing. The chitosan film does not need to be removed as it will slowly be degraded during natural skin renewal.

ChitoCare® medical  are CE marked medical devices in accordance with the European Directive 93/42/EEC on Medical Devices. Find them in our online store.
