Algivon Plus Ribbon - 100% Manuka Honey

Product Description

Activon Plus Ribbon is a soft alginate dressing impregnated with 100% medical grade Manuka honey to create a moist healing environment and effectively eliminate wound odour whilst providing antibacterial action. Algivon Plus Ribbon has reinforced alginate fibres enabling a sustained, slow release of honey whilst maintaining the integrity of the dressing. The ribbon is very soft and conformable, shaped for easy application within cavities and sinuses meaning the wound can be easily packed for direct contact with the entire wound site.

  • Pack Algivon Plus ribbon into a deep wound, cavity or sinus (do not pack cavity too tight)
  • Ribbons can be cut to size with sharp scissors

Depending on wound exudate levels, any surrounding fluid, oedema and dressing regime may require changing daily but may be left in place for up to 7 days. Will be less effective as the honey is diluted by wound exudate, to maintain an effective level change the dressing when the colour changes significantly.
