Chitosan - FH02

Invented by nature, refined and activated by us for effective wound healing. LQD® is a natural product free from artificial additives or preservatives.

The active ingredient of LQD® is chitosan.

The chitosan in LQD® is modified to become the innovative Chitosan FH02™ which has a higher positive charge and the highest degree of de-acetylation of any chitosan product.

The chitosan used for LQD® is derived from the shell of the Norwegian Arctic Sea shrimp which is specifically processed for medicinal use and is not treated with medicines. This is one reason why the chitosan used for LQD® can be described as ultrapure.


Properties.

Chitosan is structurally similar to hyaluronic acid and other glycosaminoglycans found in humans. The polymer chitosan has a positive surface charge that enables a specific electrostatic interaction with cell surfaces and other biomolecules. As a result, chitosan is known to have a range of beneficial effects:

Protects the wound.

LQD® is applied as a spray and forms a chitosan-containing semi-permeable membrane over the wound within two minutes of application that conforms perfectly to the wound bed.

REDUCES WOUND BIOBURDEN.

Chitosan is an effective anti-microbial agent.

Pain icon

RELIEVES PAIN.

When applied to open wounds chitosan provides physical protection and suppresses the secretion and expression of proinflammatory cytokines so contributing to pain relief.
