Is this good for Diabetic foot care?
Yes. SkinSmart Antimicrobial Skin & Wound cleanser for Wound Therapy helps promote healing in foot ulcers caused by diabetes. Spray your wound often and let it air dry. SkinSmart has wonderful healing properties that remarkably do not harm your healthy tissue, which is the problem with many products on the market. (Please note foot ulcers are a very serious issue - a percentage of patients with diabetic foot ulcers require hospitalization due to infection, and severe cases can even result in amputation. If you have one, you should be under your doctor’s care.)
I don’t have a foot wound but have diabetes and was told to wash my feet everyday in an antimicrobial or antiseptic foot wash. Can I use this?
Yes. SkinSmart’s antimicrobial properties make it a good option for a daily foot cleanse. It can help feet and skin stay protected from germs.
I care for an obese person who gets some skin infections under folds of skin. Can I use this on that?
Yes. This is an excellent choice for skin infections and is easy to apply, and can be applied often.
How do I use SkinSmart Antimicrobial wound therapy?
For wounds, spray SkinSmart Antimicrobial on the wound to flush away dirt and debris. Repeat as often as needed. If a wound dressing is used, saturate the dressing and apply directly over the wound. Change dressing one or more times daily as needed. To use as a daily foot wash, thoroughly spray SkinSmart on all areas of the foot, including toenails and nail beds. Allow to air dry.
I have never heard of this and neither has my doctor. How long has this technology been around?
Hypochlorous technology has been used for many years in the medical field, especially in specialty wound care centers, and more recently in the ophthalmology field as well. Its medical effectiveness is well documented, both as a potent healing agent and as a benign treatment with zero cytotoxicity. Medical uses include wound irrigation, infection prevention, and burn treatment.
Does SkinSmart Antimicrobial Wound Therapy contain steroids?
No. SkinSmart contains only pure, naturally-derived ingredients. And unlike steroids, it can be used unlimited times throughout the day, and does not need to be kept away from eyes or mouth.
Can you transfer SkinSmart to another container, like a travel-size?
No. Our technology is delicate and relies on purity. Transferring the liquid out of its original container will compromise its efficacy. It is actually very important to leave it in its container and only use that and the sprayer it came with.
Does SkinSmart Antimicrobial have a scent?
SkinSmart Antimicrobial has no added fragrance, perfumes or dyes. However, some users notice the light scent of natural Hypochlorous. Many describe it as smelling like a swimming pool or spa. The scent of Hypochlorous dissipates quickly, and won’t linger on the skin or in the air.
What else can I use this on? It says rashes and sunburns.
This product is great on sunburns and even treatment burns from medical radiation treatments. Spray it often! We hear from people that spraying it often with a burn and letting it air dry is key. Since Hypochlorous is essentially how the body heals and protects skin, it is good on many skin conditions. Some people swear by it for hives, rashes, bug bites, and more.
