What is Cutagenix made of? Cutagenix is an emulsion consisting of perfluorodecalin, water, plant derived emulsifiers, and a preservative. Perfluorodecalin is a biologically inert liquid capable of dissolving and exchanging oxygen with the environment. The emulsifiers surround small perfluorodecalin droplets, creating a uniform and stable emulsion with the consistency of a light foam.

How does Cutagenix work? Skin needs oxygen and oxygen plays an important role in maintaining the appearance of healthy skin. Perfluorodecalin, a key ingredient in Cutagenix, is a biocompatible material with a high affinity for oxygen, making it an ideal selection for use in a skin emulsion. Since the outer layers of the skin derive its oxygen from the atmosphere, a highly oxygen permeable emulsion may soothe and calm irritated skin. Other skin care products may create a thin barrier, inhibiting oxygen from reaching the skin.

What is the supersaturated oxygen emulsion (SSOE)? A perfluorocarbon emulsion containing supersaturated oxygen which creates a highly oxygen-rich local environment when applied to cover and protect a wound. As a gas, O2 has limited ability to penetrate the skin. The emulsion/dressing releases oxygen slowly over time, covering and protecting the skin for ~6 hours/application.

What is the shelf-life? The definitive real-time room-temperature test data have demonstrated the shelf life to be 24 months.
