Manuka honey: exploring the Kruuse range of products
Thursday, March 1, 2012
Manuka honey is well recognized for its beneficial properties over and above mixed flora honey for use in wound management. Having been found to offer effective antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and debridement properties as a dressing, it is only the medical grade Manuka honey that should be used in open wounds. A high UMF® grading above +10 is recommended for wounds and can now be applied easily via a range of dressings produced by Kruuse. Presentations include ready impregnated dressings (KRUUSE Manuka AD) and a non-adherent gauze (KRUUSE Manuka ND) suitable for fragile tissue. Tubes of pure Manuka Honey (Kruuse Manuka G 15 g) also allow direct application of medical grade Manuka honey to gauze or open wounds if preferred.
