Wound Wax is a beeswax and honey based product; this allows the ointment to be water resistant have easy topical application. It is also water resistant in nature - beeswax actually attracts water; keeping skin molecules well hydrated making it an ideal wound healing environment.
The original Wound Wax formula was made from honeycomb cappings, which are the exterior of the sealed honeycomb. This rich compound contains varying quantities of honey, beeswax, propolis and pollen, combined into a smooth paste.
The new Wound Wax formula is produced using precise quantities of beeswax and honey, which guarantees a more consistent, pharmaceutical grade product.
Made in Western Australia using local honey and beeswax, Wound Wax was developed by an equine vet for application to superficial wounds in horses and dogs.
