The Natural Healing of Iceland

ChitoCare Medical Logo

Primex Iceland is proud to announce its upgraded medical devices- ChitoCare® Medical – with film-forming, protective and healing properties and intended for contact with skin and wounds.

ChitoCare® Medical contains natural chitosan, a safe bioactive polymer harvested from the pristine waters around Iceland. Chitosan consists of amino sugars which occur naturally in the human body, and therefore has excellent biocompatibility.

Why chitosan? Chitosan is a functional polysaccharide providing support and under mild acidic conditions it becomes positively charged, rendering it bioadhesive to adhere as a protective film to intact or breached skin and to confer many other important biological properties. Chitosan is a true wonder from the sea as it protects the skin, reduces redness and irritation with its cooling effect, maintains moisture and promotes the skin's natural repair process.

ChitoCare® Medical products are intended for contact with skin and wounds – intact, breached and compromised surface. Both forms of the products, the gel and spray, protect the skin and wounds against infections, and help reduce bleeding and scarring. They soothe the symptoms associated with various skin conditions.

ChitoCare® Medical products can be applied to suit any skin area or wound shape and will dry into a thin, transparent and breathable film to protect the skin or wounded area. It relieves inflammation, itching and pain with its cooling effect, maintaining a proper micro-environment for rapid and natural healing. The chitosan film does not need to be removed as it will slowly be degraded during natural skin renewal.
