How Does Mastisol Work?

The outermost layer of your skin (stratum corneum) naturally sheds itself of dead, mature skin cells (keratinocytes) and is replaced by new ones. Mastisol Liquid Adhesive acts as a barrier between your skin and the adhesive on your dressing, slowing down this natural process of skin cell shedding.  In addition, the ingredient, Gum Mastic that is found in Mastisol is non-water soluble which helps to keep your dressing on in moist areas.

Ingredients: •<45% Gum Mastic •<5% Storax (styrax) Liquid •<60% Alcohol (ethanol) •<5% Methyl Salicylate

How Do You Apply Mastisol?

The video below shows you how to apply Mastisol using a single-use vial, however, even when using a multi-use bottle, the application process is the same.  In place of the vial applicator tip used to apply the product, dip a clean cotton swab into the bottle and follow the same instructions.
