PluroGel Burn and Wound Dressing Mechanism
PluroGel Micelle Matrix:
PluroGel's unique micelle gel matrix helps in the following ways:
- Maintains moisture in the wound
- Controls fluid loss
- Protects healthy tissue
- Softens wound debris
Anatomy of a Micelle:
- Contains surfactant micelles
- A micelles’ hydrophilic surface bonds with water, facilitating movement in the wound environment
- Exudate and wound debris are absorbed within the hydrophobic core, allowing for easy removal at dressing change
- Should any signs of irritation appear, discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional
- For external use only

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is PluroGel used for?
PluroGel helps in creating a moist wound-healing environment, which softens, loosens, and drives slough and necrotic debris away from the wound bed, promoting autolytic debridement.
2. How often should you change PluroGel?
Recommend changing PluroGel daily for best results. Plurogel burns, and wound dressing can remain in the wound for up to 3 days.
3. What is the mechanism of action of PluroGel?
PluroGel is a stable, viscous gel composed of a high concentration of surfactant micelles. Each micelle has a hydrophilic outer surface that softens and loosens wound debris and a hydrophobic inner core that traps debris. The micelles link to form a matrix that continually expands and contracts.
4. Is PluroGel Burn and Wound Dressing FDA Approved?
Yes, PluroGel Burn and Wound Dressing is FDA-approved.
