Activon Manuka Honey Tube is pure medical-grade Manuka Honey in a 25g tube.
Activon Tube contains 100% Manuka honey with no additives from New Zealand. Our Manuka honey is filtered and sterilised, making it suitable for application to wounds. Manuka honey will de-bride and de-slough, eliminate odours and provides a moist wound healing environment.
Activon Tube is ideal for debriding necrotic tissue, or for topping up dressings where the honey has been washed away by exudate. Great for using in cavities, just wash away with saline solution.
Activon can be applied directly onto the wound itself or onto a gauze or foam dressing. It can also be used to increase the volume of honey on pre-impregnated dressings. Activon is useful for application into abscesses or cavity wounds or to maximise the volume of honey used on a wound.
