Sustainable wound care with Hydrofiber® dressings

Dressings that contain our Hydrofiber® Technology transforms from a soft material into a gel on contact with wound fluid. This creates an optimal environment for wound healing by contouring to the wound bed and trapping bacteria to minimise infection during removal.

From forest to fibre

We know that maintaining healthy forests are one of the most effective ways to regulate carbon dioxide levels to help combat climate change.

But, did you know that every year, we manufacture tens of millions of Hydrofiber based wound dressings here in the UK?

All our Hydrofiber dressings are manufactured using fibres derived from sustainable wood pulp. In fact, over 99% of our wood comes from sustainable forestry (FSC approved). Plus, 99% of the solvent used in our dressings is resused. And all this is done using using 100% renewable electricity during the manufacturing process.
