Dermacyn® Wound Care
Antimicrobial Wound-Irrigation Solution
The Greatest Efficacy • Safe as Saline
Indicated for the treatment of all types of chronic, acute and burn wounds.
The Greatest Efficacy – Clinically Proven
Dermacyn® Wound Care irrigation solution has outstanding antimicrobial power. Dermacyn® Wound Care eliminates the unpleasant odours that often occur in infected wounds with excellent efficacy – and within just a few minutes of exposure to Dermacyn®.
The Dermacyn® Wound Care effect has been proven under clinical conditions: in a controlled prospective study*, 90% of patients had a significant increase in granulation and improvement in the surrounding skin.

Test the efficacy yourself:
Use Dermacyn® Wound Care for wounds with a particularly strong odour such as Pseudomonas infections. The odour will be reduced significantly in just a short time.
Maximum Tolerance – Proven Safety
Over 10 million patients have been treated worldwide with Dermacyn® Wound Care, including patients in Europe, the USA, South America, across the Middle East, Africa, Australia, China, Japan and India. More than 40 official clinical studies have been conducted; all without any indication of irritation, sensitization, toxicity, eye irritation or bacterial resistance.
Exclusive: Dermacyn® Wound Care for NPW therapy
Because of its maximum tolerance, Dermacyn® Wound Care can be used with all the usual positive and negative-pressure therapies, such as V.A.C. Instill®. For ease of use, Dermacyn® Wound Care is offered in a special hanging bottle with a piercing cone.
Operating Principle of a Substance Produced Naturally in the Body
Dermacyn® Wound Care replicates the body’s defence mechanisms against pathogens: Foreign substances are not eliminated chemically but are destroyed by a purely natural, physical process. The decisive factor is the essential ingredient, hypochlorous acid (HOCI). It is a crucial component of the body’s innate immune system.
The mechanical effect of the Dermacyn® Wound Care.
The Dermacyn® Wound Care wound-irrigation solution facilitates the mechanical removal of microorganisms and cell debris. Microorganisms are rinsed away with Dermacyn® Wound Care; other soluble components are removed. Dermacyn® Wound Care can also be left on the wound for softening.
Facilitates debridement, because previously damaged cells, as are found in large volumes in infected wounds, can be lysed more quickly under the influence of Dermacyn® Wound Care.
Dermacyn’s 500ml bottle is spiked & squeezable, allowing you to determine the pressure of irrigation.
Test the tolerance yourself:
Dermacyn® Wound Care is tolerated so well that even swallowing or eye contact does not lead to any irritation. Use Dermacyn® Wound Care the next time peritoneal or joint irrigation is needed.
Dermacyn® Wound Care at a Glance
Advantage of Dermacyn® Wound Care in comparison to chemical substances
Dermacyn® Wound Care combines potent antimicrobial efficacy with a safety profile identical to standard saline solution. Dermacyn® Wound Care combats microorganisms in the same natural manner as our body’s own defence mechanisms.
- Broad antimicrobial effect (bacteria, viruses, spores, fungi)
- Can remain in the wound and does not need to be rinsed out.
- Can also be used to exposed joint, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons, as well as in the inner ear, the abdomen, and the eye.
- No resistance
Through its antimicrobial effect, Dermacyn® wound-irrigation solution ensures a powerful & reliable reduction of microbial load, and with regular use, prevents a recurrence of pathogen production. Dermacyn® Wound Care also facilitates the mechanical removal of microorganisms and cell debris.
The essential component of Dermacyn® Wound Care is hypochlorous acid (HOCI). It is an important constituent of our innate immune system and is formed and released by the macrophages during phagocytosis as a substance produced naturally in the body. Because of this process, the reaction of Dermacyn® Wound Care is directed exclusively against single-celled microorganisms and not against more highly organized cell structures (such as human tissue). This results in significant advantages over other wound-irrigation solutions and antiseptic solutions.
Dermacyn® Wound Care has no side effect on human cells
Dermacyn® Wound Care is not cytotoxic
Dermacyn® Wound Care does NOT trigger any early aging processes
Not Only an Antiseptic
Unlike conventional Antiseptics that delay wound healing, Dermacyn Wound Care is the only Antiseptic that has proven wound healing properties:
- In vitro studies have shown Dermacyn inhibits the degranulation of mast cells,
therefore stopping the release of inﬂammatory chemicals, such as cytokines & histamine. This is proven to be a beneﬁt when moving
chronic wounds passed a prolonged inﬂammatory stage.
Promotes Fibroblast Migration
- Dermacyn® has demonstrated on human dermal ﬁbroblast in vitro, to promote ﬁbroblast migration which leads to accelerated wound healing.
Increases Tissue Oxygenation
- Dermacyn® has shown to increase tissue oxygenation after 60 seconds of exposure to the wound bed, TcPO2 levels double and were sustained for 36 hours.

Dermacyn® Wound Care is ideal for use in exposed joints, tendons, bones, and ligaments. In addition, it is possible to use Dermacyn® Wound Care for installation in NPWT and in peritoneal and joint irrigation.
Clean & Irrigate the wound with Dermacyn® Wound Care; the process can be repeated up to three times daily or whenever the bandage changed.
Alternatively, the wound can also be cleaned with compresses (gauze) soaked in Dermacyn® Wound Care. May keep gauze soaked with Dermacyn in wound bed as wet to dry dressing.
Adhering bandages can be loosened easily and without trauma using Dermacyn® Wound Care to moisten the adhering bandages.
- The Dermacyn® Wound Care is a ready-to-use, pH-neutral antimicrobial wound-irrigation solution.
- pH-value 7.0
- Shelf-life of up to 36 months at room temperature if not opened
- Can be warmed before use with no problem (up to 40C)
Oxidized Water 99.97%, sodium chloride 0.023%, hypochlorous acid 0.003%, sodium hypochlorite 0.004%.
Dermacyn® Wound Care is an environmentally friendly product, which can be disposed of with no special disposal requirements.
