The FDA has just approved this product.  It can be used to stop bleeding and to protect wounds.  I haven't tried it yet but it looks promising.

That reminds me of the days when my buds and I would windsurf until our hands bled. The spray called new skin was too painful to spray on yourself so we took turns spraying each others wounds. We would howl with laughter at each others howls of pain, I still see it for sale but understand why it was never a big seller. It felt like a combination of lime juice and alchohol brought to a scalding boil and poured on the wound. It did make a nice bandaid like barrier once thing simmered down and inspired some creativity in our  foul languge skills.DWM

WoundSeal looks like a beneficial product indeed, but the just-barely-above-Ronco website makes me quite cautious about it... I might be judging a book by it's cover, but to me, that litle care in the construction of a website designed to promote merchandise seems a bit cheesy.

I failed to mention Walgreen has decided to market it in southern Florida but they also sold Ronco!! LOL!!  Here is the link to the Herald-Tribune article.


If you do a Google or Bing there are a lot of websites touting its use.  Time will tell.

I am interested in this since following my stroke I was placed on a blood-thinner med, so my cuts just keep going and going like my old kitchen faucet :-). I carry a blood coagulant bandage sold at REI and EMS in my overnight bag and boat-box. I used it once after a workshop incident.  It stopped the bleeding well, but I learned that it is meant to be removed in an emergency room -- the bandage bonds to the wound, and even soaking the bandage to remove it seems to still tear out the wound again. I am assuming this powder might solve that issue as it is separate from its applicator? -- Wade

Biolife, the parent company that makes Woundseal, has a office down in Bradenton.  I have not gotten the chance to see the Woundseal in action but they did tell me that they have had the product around for some time but have been waiting on FDA approval to be able to sell it over the counter.  I'll post up anymore information that I get from them.
