About Kerecis Omega3 Wound

Kerecis Omega3 Wound is intact fish skin that, when grafted onto damaged human tissue, recruits the body’s own cells and ultimately is converted into living tissue. Because no disease-transfer risk exists between cold-water fish and humans, the Kerecis fish skin is only gently processed and retains its similarity to human skin, making it an ideal skin substitute. Fish skin also contains Omega3 fatty acids, which enhance wound healing.

The company’s mission is to extend human life by supporting the body’s own ability to regenerate, and its vision is to become the world leader in tissue regeneration by sustainably harnessing nature’s own remedies.
