Wound-Be-Gone

Marketed by:
Wake Pharm US Inc (Bellwood, IL)

Indication:
Wound-Be-Gone uses a unique combination of highly effective moist healing and patented free oxygen binding technology to heal wound and skin injuries.

The active ingredient neutralizes free oxygen radicals and creates an elastic layer that prohibits contact between the wound and its external environment. This prevents the wound from becoming contaminated and speeds up the healing process. The topical gel contains no antibiotics, medication, or biological materials.
