  • Overview
    VELVERT is an herbal anti-microbial barrier dressing consisting of a polymeric sponge loaded with patented herbal antimicrobial formulations.

VELVERT is found to be effective even against the Superbugs.
  • Properties
    • Sponge based herbal antimicrobial barrier dressing.

      Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
      Vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE)
    • The effectiveness against superbugs is proved in the Time Kill Assay, where the population of microorganisms is 99.99% reduced within 30 minutes.
    • Highly porous in nature with a capacity to absorb exudates up to 18-20 times of its own weight.
    • Biocompatible and non-toxic to human tissue.
