Cutimed Sorbact is the first wound dressing to work without a chemically active agent. Unlike dressings which depend on a chemically active agent to reduce microbial load, Cutimed Sorbact uses the physical principle of hydrophobic interaction.
Bacteria become physically and irreversibly bound to the dressing's specially coated surface of DACC, a hydrophobic fatty acid, so when the dressing is changed the bacteria are also removed, aiding the wound's natural healing process.
By removing bacteria with each dressing change, Cutimed Sorbact reduces not only their number but also the level of harmful toxins.
