Abena’s Calcium Alginate Dressing is made of natural fibers derived from seaweed. It is designed to be highly absorbent. Alginates absorb wound exudate and form a gel-like covering over the wound, helping to maintain a moist wound healing environment, promote the healing process, and minimize bleeding. The gel-like surface helps keep the dressing from adhering to the wound.
