Active ingredients

Contractubex® – effective thanks to a unique combination of active ingredients

You can start the treatment with Contractubex® as soon as the wound is closed or the stitches have been removed. The transparent gel contains active ingredients that support the healing process inside the skin, regulating the production of scar tissue and working to positively influence scar formation.

Contractubex® contains three complementary active ingredients:

1. Extractum cepae

has anti-inflammatory and bactericidal properties and prevents the formation of excessive scar tissue.

2. Heparin

softens the tissue structure, has anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling properties, supports cell and tissue regeneration and is able to bind water to the scar tissue.

3. Allantoin

encourages wound healing and has a softening effect, promotes penetration through the skin and relieves the itching often associated with scar formation.

Contractubex® has proved highly effective in treating scars for many years. The results that can be achieved are well worth the patience the treatment requires: a nearly invisible scar.
