Calcium Alginate

  • Derived from brown Seaweed extract dressing (true alginates)
  • Absorbs drainage vertically up into the dressing, preventing lateral spread- reduces maceration
  • Forms a gel which maintains a moist wound environment, but not “too moist”
  • Entraps bacteria and MMPs/Elastase in gel
  • Works well over ointments on draining wounds- allows ointment to better penetrate the wound bed

Categorized as Alginate for billing but not true alginate- more of a highly absorbent SAP (Super Absorbent Polymer)
