In the professional wound and skin care market, many products are classified as medical devices because pharmacological claims are not the primary function. . This includes dressings, compression products, emollients and skin barrier products. The physical or mechanical function of a medical device spray product is also often suitable for bag-on-valve packaging.
Bag-on-valve packaging for skin care includes silicone-based products, such as barrier films, and the increasingly popular medical adhesive remover sprays for the painless removal of stoma pouches and wound dressings. Creams, foams and gels, like burn gel sprays to treat burns, scalds and sunburns, are suitable solutions for BOV systems, as are antiseptic gels.
Using the BOV technology, there are also sprayable emollients from Aurena on the market.

There is significant product development currently in progress in this segment. Contact Aurena for you next medical device spray project for the following products:
