Product description

LAVANID® 1/2 solutions are sterile, iso-osmotic wound irrigation solutions based on Ringer’s

solution with 0.02% or 0.04% polyhexanide as preservative. Polyhexanide prevents the growth of microorganisms in wound dressings and in the solution.

LAVANID® 1/2 Wound Irrigation Solutions are isotonic. The use of an isotonic solution

prevents swelling of the skin and irritation of the wound area, as there is no exchange of fluid or electrolytes with the body’s own secretions. Their suitability for wound management, as reported in the literature,¹ and the high tissue tolerability of LAVANID® 1/2 are not least based upon this fact.

Polyhexanide reduces the surface tension of the solution. This tenside-like effect supports the

cleansing of the wound. The irrigation solution is able to reach the tissues better and more



Ringer’s solution (isotonic electrolyte solution comprising sodium chloride, potassium chloride, calcium chloride dihydrate, water for injection), macrogol, polyhexanide 0.02 % (LAVANID® 1) or polyhexanide 0.04 % (LAVANID® 2).
