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.
Medical Grade Honey prevents surgical site infections in horses!
In this study, 108 horses were randomly assigned to control or treatment (MGH) group. Gustafsson and her colleagues reported that a single application of L-Mesitran Soft in the incision strongly reduced the incisional infection rate from 32.5% (13/40) in the control group to 8.2% (4/49) in the treatment group. No adverse reactions were observed from the use of the MGH-based gel.
