Amerigel products provide superior management for a variety of wounds and problem skin conditions - such as diabetic and venous ulcers, pressure sores, cuts and abrasions, irritating rashes, sports wounds, dry and cracked skin. The key ingredient that has made products like Amerigel Wound Wash and Amerigel Gauze so effective, is a unique extract from the oak tree that is very useful at promoting skin healing naturally without side effects. This oak extract, called Oakin, is rich in tannins which promote the healing of wounds. Oak has been used for centuries to treat minor wounds and now Amerigel has formulated superior products based on this traditional medicine.
Amerigel has received high ratings from many podiatrists who have seen successful results in their patients. Amerigel offers versatile skin healing aids that are absolutely safe for everyone, including patients with diabetes. Amerigel products can even be used after surgery for faster healing of incisions.
Are you in search of a natural product for minor skin wounds? Reach for Amerigel. Each Amerigel product contains an exclusive ingredient called Oakin, a natural oak extract that harnesses the potency of tannins. Tannins are compounds that protect and heal the skin, thanks to their antimicrobial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Using oat extract as a curative is not a fad. For centuries, it has been prized as a topical treatment for addressing a variety of skin inflammations including burns, dermatitis, eczema, hemorrhoids, psoriasis, and varicose veins. Modern science has proven oak extract's efficacy as a natural antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and astringent agent.
If you suffer from a skin condition or wound, Amerigel may speed the healing. Amerigel can help to hydrate dry, patchy skin, and at the same time, relieve the itch. Amerigel may help to maintain moisture levels and reduce the chances of further issues. Contact dermatitis is a common skin allergy. Amerigel is used to address the redness, swelling and tenderness associated with this condition. For diaper rash, Amerigel will shield the skin from excess irritating moisture and help to prevent infection. Amerigel may also help soothe and heal skin that has been burned by radiation. Even surface wounds such as abrasions and cuts can benefit from Amerigel. The tannins found in Oakin may help to kill the bacteria and microorganisms that can lead to infection. Amerigel helps to accelerate healing and may minimize scarring, too.
Be sure to ask your doctor if Amerigel is right for you and seek medical attention if you have a wound that doesn't heal or becomes red or hot to the touch.
An important part of long-term medical care is the treatment, management and promoting healing of wounds, ulcers, sores, burns and surgical incision sites. These skin conditions must be carefully treated to prevent infection, further damage and complications which can lead to even more serious conditions. A leader in wound and ulcer treatment, Amerigel Products provide an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and astringent agent for the treatment for a range of skin conditions. The key ingredient in their formulas is Oakin®, an extract of oak (Quercus rubra) tannins that treats damaged skin without side effects. These tannins are readily absorbed into damaged skin, where they precipitate proteins into the wound, promoting natural healing while providing effective bactericidal protection.
MIC (Minimum Inhibitory Concentration) tests have shown that Amerigel Products containing Oakin® suppress several dozen different species of microorganisms, including E. coli, Shigella flexneri, several species of Salmonella and a range of Staphlyloccus and
Wound and ulcer management, taken to include a range of traumatic and chronic skin conditions, encompasses a wide range of problems. They vary from surgical scars to trauma sites (burns, abrasions, cuts) to chronic ulcerations (caused by pressure bandages, venous stasis, diabetes-induced). The range of needs are addressed by a variety of Amerigel Products, designed and formulated by experts in wound and ulcer treatment. Patients with allergies to oak sap or oak pollen should use these products with caution.
Useful with or without bandaging, AmeriGel Wound Dressing keeps wounds moist and clean. Containing Oakin® and meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria) extract, this dressing protects against infection, promotes natural skin tissue healing and eases the pain of ulcers and sores. Patients with asthma combined with Samter's Triad or anyone with salicylic acid sensitivity should use this dressing with caution. Lost moisture can be restored to fragile skin with Amerigel Care Lotion. Containing Oakin®, caprylic/capric triglyceride (derived from coconut), glycol, stearic acid and zinc oxide, the lotion soothes dry, irritated skin, strengthens the skin moisture barrier function to retain hydration in skin tissues and protects skin against breakdown. This product is particularly effective for minor abrasions, rashes, psoriasis, pupura and eczema as well as contact dermatitis and first- and second-degree burns (including sunburn).
Alternatively, when wounds and ulcers must be protected against excessive moisture contact, Amerigel Barrier Lotion provides a dual dimethicone/silicone skin shield. It is antimicrobial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory and is useful for areas of pressure, friction, skin folds and draining wound sites. The lotion does not penetrate the skin.
