StayGuard™ Skin & Wound Care
An Alginate Dressing is a type of wound dressing made from seaweed-derived fibers that forms a gel when it comes into contact with wound exudate. This dressing is manufactured by AdvaCare Pharma.




What is an Alginate Dressing?

Product Category:

An Alginate Dressing is a versatile wound dressing made from fibers derived from seaweed. When this dressing comes into contact with wound exudate, it forms a gel-like substance that promotes a moist healing environment. Alginate dressings are available in various sizes to accommodate different wound sizes and shapes.

The gel formed by the alginate fibers creates a protective barrier that helps to prevent infection and supports the natural healing process. These dressings are particularly effective for managing highly exuding wounds, such as venous ulcers, pressure ulcers, and surgical wounds. Alginate dressings are also known for their ability to conform to irregular wound surfaces.

At AdvaCare Pharma, we are passionate about providing our customers with the best possible Alginate Dressings. That's why we only use the highest quality materials and manufacturing processes. Our products are rigorously tested to ensure that they meet the highest safety standards. We are proud to offer a wide variety of alginate dressings to choose from, and we are confident that you will find the perfect one for your needs.

Product Specifications


Medical-grade alginate fiber is an advanced wound dressing known for its exceptional absorption capacity, effectively minimizing the risk of infection and promoting accelerated healing. Its highly absorbent nature enables it to soak up to 20 times its weight in wound exudate, maintaining a moist environment optimal for healing.

This type of dressing also encourages natural enzymatic debridement, facilitating the removal of necrotic tissue. Additionally, it possesses the advantage of not adhering to delicate tissue within the wound bed, ensuring gentle and pain-free removal. Due to its remarkable properties, alginate dressing is widely recognized as one of the most commonly used advanced wound dressings.

How should Alginate Dressing be used?

To use alginate dressing, start by ensuring proper wound cleansing and preparing the wound bed. Open the sterile packaging of the alginate dressing and gently apply it to the wound surface, making sure it covers the entire area.

Ensure the dressing is in direct contact with the wound and that it extends slightly beyond the wound margins. If necessary, lightly moisten the dressing with sterile saline solution to activate its absorptive properties. Secure the alginate dressing in place using an appropriate secondary dressing, such as a non-adhesive pad or adhesive tape.

What precautions should be considered when using Alginate Dressing?

Monitor the dressing regularly to assess the level of exudate absorption and overall wound healing progress. As alginate dressings are designed to absorb moisture and promote a moist wound environment, it is essential to follow the recommended frequency of dressing changes based on the wound condition and the specific product instructions.

Regularly assess the wound for any signs of infection, excessive exudate, or other complications, and consult with a healthcare professional for further guidance.


How do Alginate Dressings work?

Alginate dressings work by absorbing wound exudate and forming a gel-like substance, which helps to maintain a moist environment that is conducive to wound healing. This gel also assists in the removal of dead tissue and promotes the formation of new, healthy tissue.

Are Alginate Dressings suitable for all types of wounds?

Alginate dressings are commonly used for moderate to heavily exuding wounds, such as pressure ulcers, venous leg ulcers, and diabetic foot ulcers. They may not be appropriate for wounds with minimal exudate or dry wounds, as they require moisture to function effectively.

How often should Alginate Dressings be changed?

The frequency of dressing changes depends on the amount of wound exudate and the specific instructions provided by the healthcare professional. Typically, alginate dressings are changed every one to three days, or as recommended by the healthcare provider, to ensure optimal wound healing and prevent excessive dressing saturation. Regular monitoring of the wound is important to determine the appropriate interval for dressing changes.
