TheraHoney Foam Honey Dressings

  • TheraHoney® foam dressings feature a dual foam capable of absorbing the drainage generated by Manuka honey's osmotic effect
  • All-in-one design does not require a secondary absorbent dressing
  • Easy to apply; can be effortlessly cut, placed and removed from the wound
  • Impregnated with sterile, 100% medical-grade Manuka honey, derived from the pollen and nectar of the Leptospermum scoparium plant in New Zealand
  • High sugar levels (87%) in the dressing result in osmotic pressure that help promote autolytic debridement of necrotic tissue, maintain a moist wound environment conducive to wound healing, and reduce wound odor
  • During manufacturing, the honeycomb is used only one time, and once harvested, the honey is carefully filtered, irradiated and tested in a laboratory
  • Recommended for use on wounds with any drainage level
  • Indicated for use on leg ulcers, pressure injuries, 1st and 2nd degree burns, diabetic foot ulcers, surgical wounds and trauma wounds under the supervision oaf healthcare professional

MORE ABOUT THIS ITEM

The Honey Story.

TheraHoney products contain 100% sterile, medical-grade Manuka honey with no fillers or additives. Manuka honey is derived from the pollen and nectar of the Leptospermum scoparium plant in New Zealand. The honey comb is used only one time, and once harvested, the honey is carefully filtered, irradiated and tested in a laboratory for high efficacy.

Manuka honey has unique properties that help create a moist wound environment conducive to wound healing, promote natural (autolytic) debridement to clear away necrotic tissue, and reduce wound odor.

The Role of Sugar in Autolytic Debridement

The high sugar levels (87%) in TheraHoney result in osmotic activity that helps promote natural (autolytic) debridement to clear away necrotic tissue, maintain a moist wound environment conducive to wound healing, and reduce wound odor.

The Impact of Manuka Honey on Wound pH

Chronic, non-healing wounds often have an elevated alkaline environment. Lowering the pH can aid in wound healing, and the use of Manuka honey dressings is associated with a statistically significant decrease in wound pH and a reduction in wound size.1

— Reduced Necrotic Tissue and Wound Size —

Using TheraHoney Gel, wounds significantly improved in terms of necrotic tissue reduction and wound surface reduction over an average of 4 weeks.2,3

The illustration above demonstrates how the osmotic
action of Manuka honey draws exudate from subcutaneous
tissue to the wound surface, removing debris, slough and necrotic
tissue.
