BloodSTOP® Hemostat for surface wounds
My husband was an Army Medic, and not only that, but he mainly worked in the Emergency Room, so he is no stranger to quickly fixing wounds. Bob is always on the lookout for great safety products for our first aid kits (yes, we have more than one – including a home disaster kit) and he was happy to add BloodSTOP packets to our home kit. BloodSTOP® products stop the bleeding and promote the natural healing process. Its proven more effective than any other product on the market. BloodSTOP® is a biocompatible, non-irritating, hemostatic agent which resembles traditional gauze. Using a proprietary formulation, regenerated cotton cellulose is etherified and oxidized to make a water-soluble, hemostatic matrix. Its composition provides certain advantages for natural rapid hemostasis as well as patient comfort and improved wound management when compared with traditional adhesive bandages, sprays, chemical powder, or animal-based products. To put it in layman’s terms, BloodSTOP stops the bleeding FAST!
How it Works
When applied to a wound, BloodSTOP® quickly absorbs blood and other body fluids, transforms into a gel to seal the wound with a protective transparent layer, actively aids in blood coagulation, and creates an environment for wound healing.

The gauze-like BloodSTOP is safe and easy to us on all ages on top of being pain-free to apply and remove. Awesome!
About BloodSTOP: BloodSTOP® and BloodSTOP® iX are biocompatible, non-irritating, woven matrices of fibers made from natural plant compounds.
