PCCA Spira-Wash™ Gel
Spira-Wash Gel is a base designed to promote a moist wound environment to promote the healing process. 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 potentially has germicidal, anti-inflammatory and healing properties, thus making it a good choice for wounds, ulcers, burns, sores, and cuts.

Spira-Wash Gel is a water-washable base for easy cleansing/debridement. It is adherent, provides occlusion, and maintains a moist environment at the wound/dressing interface.

Pain also may be decreased by maintaining this moist environment.
