MelMax®: A product of Dermagenics Europe

Product Description

MelMax is a medical device manufactured by Dermagenics and currently available and approved for use in Europe and the Middle East. MelMax is a sterile wound dressing impregnated with Polyhydrated Ionogens (PHI-5) ointment and honey. MelMax can be used for all types of wounds, including burns. PHI-5 contains a synthetic blend of metal ions, equivalent to the formulation for DerMax, such as those that normally also occur in serum and wound exudates.

The PHI-5 formulation and the honey will be gradually released onto the wound surface after the dressing is applied to the wound.
