Kelo-cote is intended for the management of old and new scars, including hypertrophic and keloid scars, resulting from general surgical procedures, trauma, wounds and burns.
A patented, self-drying, flexible, gas permeable, waterproof silicone gel that is colorless and odorless. It forms a bond with the stratum corneum (the outer layer of dead skin cells) forming a protective barrier against chemical physical and microbial invasion of the scar site while assisting with hydration.
Kelo-cote is also for use on children or people with sensitive skin. Silicone Gel Sheets are internationally recommended as the first line of treatment in scar management.
