Do Cederroth plasters contain rosin (colophonium)?

All materials in Cederroth plasters are completely free from rosin (colophonium). However, some plasters are enclosed in protective paper. All paper can contain very tiny amounts of rosin, and in these circumstances the migration of rosin to the plaster cannot be entirely excluded.


Do Cederroth Bloodstoppers contain an additive that accelerates clotting?

No, Bloodstoppers do not contain an additive. It is the design of the dressing that makes it suitable for use both as a tourniquet and to protect more superficial wounds. Bloodstoppers consist of two bandages and an absorbent pad attached to one of the bandages. The unattached bandage can be inserted into a pocket on the pad to increase the pressure on the wound when the bandage is wrapped round the injured part of the body.


Is the First Aid Panel date-stamped (with an expiry date)?

The First Aid Panel itself is not marked with an expiry date, but all products on the panel are. The panel does not have an expiry date because it can be refilled with new products, which means the expiry date changes. The products on the panel are classified as medical devices, which means they must conform with the requirements in the medical devices directive, including the requirements for expiry dates.


Do the products become unusable after the expiry date?

The product’s function and, where applicable, sterility are guaranteed during its shelf life, based on data from shelf life studies. Any changes after the expiry date are gradual rather than overnight. For sterile products, the packaging must be intact for sterility to be guaranteed. However, Cederroth recommends that products are not used after the expiry date.
