Hirudoid Cream

Hirudoid Cream
helps to heal bruises and relieve pain and inflammation associated with superficial thrombophlebitis (inflammation of the veins).

The active ingredient in Hirudoid Cream is heparinoid, a substance similar to heparin that improves circulation after bruising or soft tissue injuries by dissolving small blood clots and improving the blood supply to the skin.

The mucopolysaccharides (MPS) contained in Hirudoid Cream are similar to the naturally occurring MPS found in the dermis layer of skin, which plays an essential role in supporting the skin's healing capability by promoting tissue regeneration and reducing swelling and inflammtion. Scientific studies have shown that Hirudoid Cream contains MPS in effective concentrations to penetrate through to the dermis layer to heal bruises fast.
