What is hydrophilic foam dressing used for?
While foam is used for a wide range of wound dressings, hydrophilic dressings are specifically used when moisture absorbency and breathability is required when wounds are healing.
As well as producing medical grade hydrophilic foam, we can also manufacture composite hydrophilic solutions, which can add anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties to the dressing.
What are the main properties of hydrophilic foam?
Hydrophilic Foam is primarily known for its absorbent properties, but the combination of breathability, biocompatibility, softness, and flexibility means it is a material ideal for numerous purposes.
Outside of medical applications, it is widely used in cosmetic applicators due to its durability and resistance to oil. Another common use is packaging – for both consumer and moisture sensitive goods.
Why is hydrophilic foam used in cosmetics?
Hydrophilic foam is non-crumbling, durable and oil resistant. Being washable and re-usable it offers a cost-effective solution for moisture-sensitive cosmetic products, and can be used with liquids, solids and powders.
All of our hydrophilic cosmetic foam grades are odourless, latex-free and non-toxic.
