CURIOSIN® is a wound care preparation designed for quality healing.
CURIOSIN® is capable of promoting physiological wound healing and preventing wound infection.
CURIOSIN® is composed principally of highly purified zinc hyaluronan, a proprietary complex of the essential skin constituent hyaluronan* biomolecule and zinc.
CURIOSIN® is a clear, non-irritant, highly biocompatible product family supplied as Gel and Fluid for the management of various types of wounds.
*hyaluronan is a term encompassing the names used for the different forms the molecule can take, such as: hyaluronic acid, hyaluronate, sodium hyaluronate, hyaluronic acid sodium salt, HA, NaHA etc.
For over-the-counter use:
superficial wounds such as minor trauma wounds (abrasions, lacerations, cuts), minor burns
mild-to-moderate form of acne vulgaris
Under the supervision of a healthcare professional:
chronic wounds such as leg ulcers of different origin and decubitus
Minor trauma wounds:
Clean the wound surface with saline or water, wait until bleeding stops, and apply CURIOSIN® (zinc hyaluronan) in a thin layer (1mm of the Gel or 1 drop/cm2 of the Fluid) to the entire wound surface. Covering the wound is optional, you may let CURIOSIN® dry on the surface or may cover the wound with a primary non-stick gauze dressing and a self-adhesive bandage.
CURIOSIN® can be used repeatedly.
Cool the burnt surface with running cold water and apply CURIOSIN® as instructed above.
Mild-to-moderate form of acne vulgaris (spots, pimples):
After cleansing gently rub CURIOSIN® into the affected skin area twice daily (rub gently until completely absorbed to avoid dried remnants of the gel on the skin).
HOW TO USE
apply CURIOSIN® as a continuous thin layer (1mm of the Gel or 1 drop/cm2 of the Fluid) to the entire compromised skin area(s) (if necessary, a clean application aid e.g. a cotton swab or a tongue depressor can be used)
once CURIOSIN® has been applied, you may cover the wound with a non-stick gauze dressing and wrap it over with a self-adhesive bandage
repeat the process of wound cleansing, applying CURIOSIN® and bandaging daily, in the case of heavily exuding wounds twice a day
What undesirable effects may CURIOSIN® have?
In some case local hypersensitivity (allergic reaction) may emerge.The following symptoms may occasionally occur at the beginning of use: redness, mild transient stinging or burning sensations, and local pain.
The following conditions were reported very rarely during clinical trials: hypergranulation and partial necrosis found only in a very limited area of the wound bed, but the causal relationship to CURIOSIN® therapy has not been established.
