A patent-protected, clinically proven, silicone gel treatment for scar reduction, currently sold in more than 65 countries around the world.
KELO-COTE™ is intended for the treatment and prevention of hypertrophic and keloid scars resulting from surgical procedures, trauma, wounds and burns, helping to soften and flatten raised scars and reduce redness and discolouration. It helps reduce itching, discomfort and pain associated with scars. The efficacy of KELO-COTE™ has been demonstrated in over 10 published clinical trials.
International guidelines recommend silicone as the first-line therapy in scar prevention and treatment and it is used extensively by healthcare professionals such as plastic surgeons and dermatologists.
KELO-COTE™ can be used to treat existing hypertrophic and keloid scars or to help prevent new scars from forming if used as soon as the wound is closed or stitches are removed. KELO-COTE™ is most effective on new scars and immature scars up to 2 years old.
KELO-COTE™’s patented formula binds to the skin’s surface creating an ultra-thin sheet which can give treatment and protection for 24 hours per day⸸. Once applied it dries within just 5 minutes* and is available as a spray which avoids the need to touch scar areas which may be sensitive – such as burns.

The MacuShield™ brand began with a single product, MacuShield™ Original with LMZ3™, the number one recommended supplement by eye experts in the UK⸸. MacuShield™ supplements are all derived from the marigold flower (Tagetes erecta) that combines all three macular carotenoids: lutein, meso-zeaxanthin and zeaxanthin. These three nutrients come exclusively from our diet, lutein and zeaxanthin coming from dark green leafy veg and brightly coloured fruits, and meso-zeaxanthin coming from some types of fish and seafood. Scientific research shows that these three macular carotenoids are found at the back of the eye, at the macula, where they form the macular pigment (yellow colour) and concentrated at the very centre of this pigment is meso-zeaxanthin.
Since its launch, the range of products has increased, but they all still revolve around this core formula, and all of our MacuShield™ products still contain LMZ3™ - our brand name for this specific, trusted and researched blend of all three of these macular carotenoids.
