More than Honey
Since 2002, L-Mesitran has been pioneering wound care products based on Medical Grade Honey. We aspire to deliver high quality products for fast and efficient wound healing.
Our founder Dr. Theo Postmes developed an ointment based on medical grade honey supplied with antioxidants to boost the effect of the honey.
The products are CE approved for the European market, FDA approved for the market in the USA and further they are approved in over fifty countries worldwide with differentiated registrations.
Medical Grade Honey
Medical Grade Honey follows a rigorous process to ensure quality, safety and effectiveness. The honey is collected under an organic environment and is sterilized using gamma radiation to kill endospores and other microorganisms.
Honey used for medical purposes needs to be pollutants and toxic substance free. Toxic substances such as herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals and microorganisms must be eliminated before honey can be used for medical purposes.
Honey from supermarkets is often sterilized with heat which inactivates the medicinal properties of the enzymes and similarly, honey from the beekeeper may not be extensively tested to ensure that it is contamination free.
L-Mesitran proves to be the best Medical Grade Honey
Product to Remove Biofilms
L-Mesitran proves to be the best Medical Grade Honey product to get rid of biofilms in wounds. This was published in the journal Antibiotics. The study at the University of Ghent shows that six different commercially available MGH-based wound care products are effective to prevent and remove biofilms.
L-Mesitran Soft demonstrates significantly stronger activity than the other products, because of its added components. The clinical efficacy of L-Mesitran Soft has also been supported in clinical cases of persistent biofilms without the need of using antibiotics.
