Properties

epicitehydro is an innovative biomaterial made of biotechnologically generated cellulose made from sugar. With water content of at least 95% water, it provides skin with water and supports long-term dermal dehydration. Due to its unique properties, epicitehydro is a wound dressing, which has the following advantages:

  • Provides a healing-promoting moist environment of hydro balance and water vapor permeability;
  • Permeable for air and liquids;
  • Achieves a cooling effect due to evaporation;
  • Capability to absorb wound exudates;
  • Easy to handle, non-adhesive, tear resistant, shapeable and flexible size, soft, semitransparent;
  • In a hydrated stage, the soft surface of epicite prevents a sticking to the wound and supports removal;
  • Provides protection against invasion of pathogens;
  • epicite can be soaked and equillibrated with antiseptic solutions.
