Hema Gel is a useful, even essential, item in your first aid kit, as it provides fast, effective relief from skin trauma and minor wounds. The gel is used to cover the wound, which forms a 'barrier' of protection, and is not absorbed, allowing the body to heal naturally. The hydrophilic gel also helps to clean free radicals from the wound. It can be used for a variety of skin traumas, such as minor cuts. The gel is easy to use, non toxic and non sticky - a perfect addition to all first aid kits!
