Why Use Keratin?
Keratin is a durable, natural constituent of the mammalian body (in fact it makes up 90% of human hair, skin, and nails). This unique biomaterial is fundamental to the healthy development of hard and soft tissues. When applied to a wound, it provides strength and resilience to cells that form an immediate natural barrier to protect damaged skin and other tissues during healing.
Keratin is ideal as a medical, wound healing device because it creates a natural barrier to the environment, provides a moist wound bed for healing and doesn’t require additional bandaging as it stays where it is applied. Keratin is also an affordable biomaterial and one that the medical field will always have access to more of.
