An innovative film-forming gel, a.k.a. "The Patchless Patch."

PCCA Occlusaderm Base is designed to be an excellent film former, utilizing natural polymers and exhibiting impressive adhesive properties. Once Occlusaderm is applied, although water soluble, it is impermeable and oil-resistant. A variety of drugs can be incorporated into Occlusaderm, and a variety of disease states may benefit from full as well as partial occlusion, which provides for novel applications in cosmetics and pharmaceutical preparations.

It is designed to help provide conditions that will maintain a moist wound environment, which allows for optimal healing.
