Actilite is a light viscose net dressing coated with antibacterial Manuka honey & Manuka oil. The dressing is designed to protect a wound, promote healing and allow the passage of exudate.
The antibacterial effect of Actilite has been enhanced by combining high grade antibacterial Manuka oil with Manuka honey. The combination of Manuka honey and Manuka oil has been demonstrated in-vitro to be effective against a number of major wound infecting organisms including MRSA, VRE and Providentia stuartii.
Remove from the outer packet, remove clear films and apply to the wound either side up. Apply a secondary dressing of choice, this can be an absorbent dressing or semi-permeable film dressing depending on the nature of the wound. We recommend Eclypse Adherent or Advazorb Silflo. Actilite can also be used under Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) or a primary layer to reduce bacterial burden.
