Product information

Savlon Advanced Healing Gel’s hydro-active colloid formulation can quickly help soothe the pain of minor wounds. The gel helps create optimal healing conditions, reducing the likelihood of scarring.

Savlon Advanced Healing Gel can be used for dry or wet wound:

• In case of a dry wound Savlon Advanced Healing Gel turns the dry wound into a moist one (“hydrogel” effect). The dry wound absorbs the water contained in Savlon Advanced Healing Gel helping reduce the likelihood of scarring.
• In case of a wet wound, the hydrocolloid of Savlon Advanced Healing Gel is activated and consequently Savlon Advanced Healing Gel absorbs excessive fluid from the wound and restores the water balance in the wound (“hydrocolloid” effect).

Recommended dosage

Apply a small amount to the affected area and repeat the application as required, up to twice a day. For external use only. Avoid contact with the eyes, middle ear, meninges and other nervous tissues. If you experience any side effects or allergic reactions stop using immediately and seek medical advice.
