Description: Hylase Wound Gel is formulated to provide wound care dressing and management.
Hylase Wound Gel is a combination of emollients and sodium hyaluronate which function to maintain tissue hydration and support the healing process. Hylase Wound Gel has been demonstrated to be of value in the management of certain skin ulcers and wounds. Sodium hyaluronate is a salt of hyaluronic acid, a naturallyoccuring molecule found in various body tissues. The sodium hyaluronate present in Hylase Wound Gel is synthetically derived.
