Hirudoid contains MPS (Mucopolysaccharide polysulphate) which is similar to the body’s naturally occurring MPS found in the dermis layer of skin. The skin’s healing capability relies on the presence of MPS in the tissue. Scientific studies have shown that the MPS in Hirudoid penetrates to the dermis layer in effective concentrations to heal bruises fast.
MPS has many clinically documented properties including the promotion of tissue regeneration and reduction of swelling and inflammation. It is in these ways that Hirudoid accelerates the healing time of bruises.
