A wound is described as an injury to living tissue caused by a cut, blow, or other impact, typically one in which the skin is cut or broken. There has, however, been a noted rise in non-healing, or chronic wounds.
Wound care is a multibillion-dollar business worldwide, which in the USA alone affects 5.7 million people annually at a cost of US$20 billion. Chronic, non-healing wounds impose an immense financial burden to society, not only through the economic burden on the health care system, but also through a reduction in productivity.
There is documented historical use of Kisolite for wound healing as a simple mineral clay poultice. Nowadays a greater understanding of the biological processes associated with chronic wound healing has identified the role of minerals and microbes, or the absence of them, in immuno-compromised individuals. This supports and provides a biological explanation for the recorded efficacy of Kisolite used as a natural wound healing product.
With this growing knowledge the company has pursued the development of Kisolite for an all-natural wound care formula and has filed for patent protection on a multi-claim formulation.
