What is AMERIGEL?

Overview

AMERIGEL is a line of skin and wound care products developed by Amerx Health Care Corporation. They treat a wide range of skin conditions and promote the healing of cuts, burns, wounds, and ulcers. They also help to keep skin moisturized and prevent the deterioration associated with dry skin in diabetics. AMERIGEL also produce products to prevent and relieve dry and irritated skin.

According to their website, AMERX Health Care Corporation was founded by John C. Anderson in 1993 to develop wound and skin care products for hospitals, wound care centers, nursing homes and doctor’s offices.  AMERIGEL products work to provide a moist wound environment and promote healing through the use of natural ingredients. The products are free from antibiotics and are considered safe for people with allergies to common triple antibiotic treatments like Neosporin. The neomycin in Neosporin often causes contact dermatitis.

Four of the key AMERIGEL products are Hydrogel Wound Dressing, Care Lotion, Wound Wash and Barrier Lotion.

AMERIGEL Hydrogel Wound Dressing

This product promotes healing and helps to reduce scarring. To quote AMERX, “AMERIGEL Hydrogel Wound Dressing’s advanced formula provides moist wound healing through its unique ability to address multiple wound concerns simultaneously.  The hydrating base in the wound dressing provides necessary moisture to assist the body in creating an optimum wound healing environment.  Zinc works together with the hydrating base to prevent scabs from forming, which can delay the healing process and lead to scarring.”
