TheraHoney Honey Wound Dressing Sheet

  • TheraHoney® dressings are impregnated with 100% sterile, medical-grade Manuka honey that 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
  • High sugar levels (87%) in the dressing result in osmotic pressure that helps promote autolytic debridement of necrotic tissue, promote a moist wound healing environment and rapidly reduces wound odor
  • TheraHoney Sheet is porous, permitting the passage of exudate into a secondary dressing, which helps prevent periwound maceration
  • Recommended for use on partial and full-thickness wounds, leg ulcers, pressure injuries, first- and second-degree burns, diabetic foot ulcers, surgical wounds and trauma wounds under the supervision of a healthcare professional and minor abrasions, lacerations, minor cuts, minor scalds and burns

MORE ABOUT THIS ITEM

What is Manuka Honey?

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.

Wound pH

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.

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
