Derma GeL® is an isotonic hydrogel made of high-molecular-weight polymers that promotes wound healing. Indicated for intensive and rapid skin care.
Derma GeL® ensures: bacteriostatic properties, a long term moist environment, soothing effect, healing process enhancers, insect repellent feature and a protective film effect to protect against external contaminants (no secondary dressing or bandage required). The unrivaled efficacy of this combination reduces drastically the healing time by 60% leading to fewer product applications.
Derma GeL® favors the rapid hair regrowth in the original color.
Derma GeL® remains unique and ahead of the rest in terms of extensive scientific research performed on 3-dimensional reconstructed skin models in order to assess its efficacy, the transcutaneous passage of pharmaceutical molecules, the cell viability rate, the absence of irritant/sensitizing effect on epithelial cells as well as the absence of mutagenicity and cytogenotoxicity, ensuring hair regrowth in the original color.
Derma GeL® 's development case - using pioneering techniques - has been internationally rewarded by Harvard Business School and Euromanagement, during their First International Conference held in Paris (France) on October 30 & 31,1997.
Derma Gel® - Unrivaled Efficacy.
The Healing Process
Derma GeL® provides a moist environment which maintains epithelial cell viability to 97%  and enables healing epithelial cells to migrate across the wound bed, multiply exponantially and enhance wound healing - increasing wound contraction speed.
The moist environment provided by Derma GeL® does not permit the formation of a scab. These properties promote wound healing from the sides as well as the bottom of the wound.
A wound without moisture will form a scab. In order to heal, the epithelial cells have to migrate below the scab to reach moisture that enables them to heal the wound. Epithelial cells that have to migrate longer distances do not survive well, and this delays wound healing.
All wounds are contaminated with microorganisms. The difference between a contaminated wound and an infected wound is the concentration of microorganisms present in the wound. Proper cleansing and care of the wound will prevent the number of microorganisms from increasing to the point of infection. It is recommended that the wound be flushed generously with saline solution or warm water. The use of topical antibiotics is not recommended with Derma GeL® The protective layer and bacteriostatic properties provided by Derma GeL® enable the wound to heal without bandaging while controlling bacterial proliferation.
No Bandaging Required
The conventional method of wound treatment involved applying gauze and wraps which were thought to protect the wound and speed up healing. Wounds covered with a hydrogel dressing are kept moist without the need for bandaging. Therefore, the skin heals faster, without the trauma of bandage removal and replacement.
When Derma GeL® ® is applied, it provides an external layer of protective film. This external layer is semi-occlusive and enables the inner layer to maintain a moist environment. The moist environment is composed of hydrophilic particles and several active molecules, which absorb exudates from the wound., The combination of the protective film and the ability to absorb wound exudate creates an optimal moist environment for rapid healing.. ,
No Excessive Tissue Granulation or Hair Discoloration
The use of Derma GeL® with proper wound cleansing minimizes microbacterial concerns that the microorganism population will not increase to infection levels, and that exudates are absorbed from the wound, providing a moist environment in which the healing epithelial cells can work to heal the wound. When keeping the wound cleansed and moist, the epithelial cells produced are identical to those prior to the damage. Derma GeL® does not contain any mutagenic agents, which induce the formation of excessive tissue granulation and discolored hair on regrowth.
Composition: water, alcohol, propylene glyol, sorbus (pyrus sorbus) extr., glycerin, hydrocotyle (centella asiatica) extr., calendula officinalis extr., hydrogenated castor oil, sodium bicarbonate, carbomer, sweet marjoram (origanum majorana) extr., lavender (lavandula angustifolia) extr., thyme (thymus vulgaris) extr., sage (salvia officinalis) extr.
Cleanse the affected area daily with warm water or a saline solution only, so as to preserve epithelial cells from irritation. Apply generously two or three times a day, as needed. To help prevent abnormal skin proliferation extend application to the surrounding area.
Safe to use in competition, gestation or when licked.
Not for human use. Keep out of reach of children. For animal use only. Remove seal and tighten cap. Keep cap completely closed at all times when product is not in use to prevent contamination. Keep in a cool, dark place away from heat or frost.

Equine America Message
Equine America are pleased to announce that we are certified members of the following Quality Assurance Schemes:
By complying with these externally audited schemes, we demonstrate our commitment to providing top quality equine feed for our customers.
What is UFAS & BETA NOPS?
To the consumer, UFAS accreditation means:
1. Full traceability of ingredients - from the packaged product right back to buying in the raw materials.
Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances (NOPS) can occur in feed or supplements as a result of a natural presence or inadvertent cross-contamination during processing. All substances classed as NOPS are included in a defined list and featured in the BETA NOPS quality assurance schemes. Companies audited under these schemes work to defined standards to help reduce the risk of feed contamination by NOPS. Companies signed up to the BETA NOPS scheme can make horse feed only on a dedicated non-medicated production line in order to reduce the risk of cross-contamination http://www.beta-uk.org/pages/feed-safety/beta-nops-scheme.php
