Prontosan® contains betaine and polihexanide. Betaine reduces the environmental surface tension of the biofilm which results in a maceration of the biofilm and finally allows a better penetration into it. The mechanism of action can basically be compared with a dishwashing detergent. Polihexanide is an antimicrobial agent with broad specturm biocidal activity. The mode of action can be described as a non-specific electrostatic interaction with the bacterial cell wall. The attachment of polihexinde to the bacterial cell wall results in a disorganisation of the biological structure of the bacteria.
Prevent, Defend and Restore Your Skin
Eliminate scarring and skin ageing before it get worst!
It is important to prevent skin breakdown and protect fragile or vulnerable skin against external influences that might impact a patient's quality of life.
The prevention action must continue even after the wound has healed because it may be crucial to the patient's health to prevent the formation of excessive scar tissues.
