chitoclear® Wound Care Products

Primex offers wound care products based on ChitoClear® chitosan in the form of a gel and a spray, to suit different applications. The need for natural personal care and antimicrobial solutions is continuously growing as to customers' demand. Chitosan is an interesting alternative in personal care products because of its potentially beneficial biological properties: biodegradable, biocompatible, antioxidative, emulsifying, mucoadhesive, film-forming, hemostatic, antimicrobial, stimulating healing, and analgesic. Infection of a wound as well as improper conditions will retard healing and interfere with the skin natural repair process. Further the use of antibiotics may delay healing. Therefore, the use of a natural and safe antimicrobial compound in wound care is of great interest.

ChitoClear® gel and spray contain no preservatives or other substances necessary for its proper functioning. Challenge tests have demonstrated the natural preservative capacity of the products.

ChitoClear® chitosan is the key ingredient in the natural solution prepared as a spray or gel which is smooth and easy to apply, clear and non-staining, and will rapidly dry as a film covering and protecting the wound. Its antimicrobial properties reduce the risk of infection, otherwise delaying normal healing. Application of chitosan on burns has also been studied.

ChitoClear® gel and spray have been tested and used by veterinarians on different animals; pets, horses, and livestock.

Pet weight management

LipoSan Ultra® for Weight Management in Pets Obesity in dogs and cats is a serious problem and is directly related to how much food an owner makes available to their pet. More specifically, it is not so much the volume of food but the amount of fat that is present in the pet food relative to the amount of daily exercise. If you have an indoor pet that gets limited outdoor exercise and a moderately high fat diet, obesity is a real threat. The logical answer is to increase the pet's exercise on a regular basis, decrease the amount of food per meal and select a pet food that is low in fat. Sound familiar?  Your doctor has probably been giving you this same advice relative to your personal diet and exercise regimen for years and you still have a weight problem.  It's not easy for you and it's not easy for your pet. Sometimes we all need help.

LipoSan Ultra® is a clinically proven weight management tool for humans that can be applied to pets. Unlike regular chitosan, LipoSan Ultra® is designed to rapidly dissolve as soon as it comes into contact with stomach acid. As a result, it can be given orally to the pet at the same time the pet consumes its food – not 30 min to 1 hour before as recommended for regular chitosan.
