The Manuka honey is imported from New Zealand and derived from honeybees visiting the blossoms of the Manuka shrub. Its unique composition promotes skin regeneration. The hydro-active ManukaLind patches are soaked in ManukaLind ointment. Due to the long-term application of the patches the affected area remains saturated. In this way, the patches protect the skin from drying out and from invading germs. The porous patches guarantee a high degree of breathability.
The animal is less likely to be traumatised by repeated changes of the bandages, as this is more seldom recquired. Additionally, the Patches serve to protect the affected area from excessive licking.
Manuka honey (MGO 514+)
Manuka honey originates from New Zealand where it has been used for generations to promote healing. The honeybees extract pollen and nectar from the Manuka blossoms (leptosperum scoparium) to create this exceptional honey. Otysan and ManukaLind contain high-grade, quality certified Manuka honey from New Zealand.
Comfrey extract (Symphytum officinalis radix)
Comfrey greatly enhances skin regeneration. The allantoins contained in the roots and herbs of comfrey have a positive effect on the cell growth of the skin. Extracts from the root of the Comfrey (Symphytum officinalis) stimulate the circulation of the irritated skin and help to soothe the infected area.
Essential oils (Lavender, thyme)
Essential oils have an unpleasant taste which discourages the pet from licking the ointment and thus the infected area. The essential oils also work as a repellant against flies and others pests. The oil is safe for cats.
