Exuderm Odorshield and say goodbye to smelly hydrocolloids.
Cyclodextrin “buckets” trap odor-causing molecules
Exuderm OdorShield contains cyclodextrins — naturally occuring, non-cytotoxic molecules that help absorb odor. Cyclodextrins are bucket-shaped molecules that attract and trap odor-causing molecules in the dressing
Exuderm Odorshield makes charcoal-based dressings obsolete
Another type of of odor control dressing are charcoal-based dressings. Unfortunately, charcoal dressings don't work well on exudative wounds. Their odor-absorbing properties are deactivated by the proteins in wound fluid. Exuderm OdorShield is designed to absorb odors in the presence of wound exudate; plus it's more conformable, absorbs more fluid, and requires no secondary dressing.
Exuderm Odorshield absorbs as well as, if not better, than any other hydrocolloid on the market.
Easy wound visualization
Translucent appearance allows visualization of wound without removing dressing.
Longer wear time
The smooth satin backing, tapered edge, and low-residue formula help ensure longer wear.
