EltaMD SilverGel is a clear, shapeless antimicrobial wound gel that contains 55 ppm silver. This product was created to provide a moisturized healing environment for wounds, that also helps reduce and control bioburden, or bacteria living on a non-sterilized surface. This antimicrobial gel prevents bacteria from growing by providing protection for any high-risk, or infected wounds. It may also help prevent bacteria growth for wounds with light to moderate exudate by absorbing up to equal its volume of exudate. This formula is non-staining, non-cytotoxic, water soluble, and clear, so monitoring your wound is still possible. After much comprehensive testing, it is also proven to sustain an effective silver ion release for three days or more.
