PCCA’s A.J. Day interviews Gus Bassani and Daniel Banov about the innovative Spira-Wash Gel base.
Spira-Wash Gel is designed to create a moist wound environment that promotes healing. It is a soft, opaque Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) ointment base containing organic meadowsweet extract. Due to the phenolic glycosides (spiraein) and flavonoids in the meadowsweet, it has the potential for germicidal, anti-inflammatory and healing properties, making it a good choice for wounds, ulcers, burns, sores and cuts.
