Sanyrene, the only topical oil with proven efficacy:

  • Halves the risk of developing a pressure ulcer
  • Preserves tissue oxygenation under pressure (TCPO2).
  • Strengthens skin resistance.
  • Prevents skin dehydration.
  • Accelerates cellular renewal.
  • Restores the lipidic film.

sanyreneComposition

Sanyrene is an oil composed of 99% Corpitolinol 60 = hyperoxygenated glycerides of essential fatty acids, rich in linoleic acid (60%) and Vitamin E (tocopherol acetate)

  • Aniseed perfume 1%

Sanyrene is hypoallergenic.

Mode of action

1) The skin directly absorbs the linoleic acid applied topically, and incorporates it in the Ceramides 1 of the stratum corneum to guarantee its cohesion.

2) The action of hyperoxygenation by Corpitolinol 60 is the source of the oxidative changes which affect the unsaturated fatty acids and principally linoleic acid.

Applied directly to the skin, these elements play a role in the regulation of cell division and epidermal differentiation.

  • Reduces the risk of developing pressure ulcers by 50%
  • Gentle and pain free application
  • Hypoallergenic and well tolerated
  • Paraben-free

Sanyrene is specifically indicated for patients at risk of developing a pressure ulcer.

Sanyrene is also indicated for redness (erythema) which disappears with finger pressure.

Precautions for use

  • Keep out of the reach of children
  • Do not ingest – for external, topical use only

Sanyrène should be used as soon as there is a risk of pressure ulcer developing.

Instructions for use

  • Apply 1 spray of Sanyrène onto areas at risk of pressure ulcer development (heel, sacrum…)
  • Apply gently with fingertips for one minute
  • Repeat application 2 to 3 times a day, on each area at risk, every time the patient is repositioned.

Product

Why are the fatty acids in Sanyrene hyperoxygenated?

The oxygenation of fatty acids, particularly linoleic acid, leads to the formation of specific elements with anti-inflammatory properties (precursor of prostaglandins PGE1 and PGE2).
These substrates also play a role in the regulation of cell division and epidermal differentiation.

What is the purpose of vitamin E?

Vitamin E is an antioxidant.
It traps the free radicals released following the peroxidation of fatty acids.

Why is Sanyrene different?

Sanyrène is the only product which has demonstrated its clinical efficacy in the prevention of pressure ulcers, reported in the GIPPS Study.
The GIPPS study also demonstrated the ineffectiveness of using emollients and protective agents, which had identical results to the control group who had nothing applied to the skin.

Creams and emulsion may require an application supported by kneading or massage, actions currently prohibited by the Consensus Conference, as they can have a traumatic effect on the skin.

A daily effleurage with fingertips done with fingertips has become the most widely used technique.
The use of a solution with hyperoxygenated fatty acids such as Sanyrène promotes therapeutic effleurage with fingertips and has demonstrated its value when used for the prevention of pressure ulcers.

Is the aniseed perfume in Sanyrene allergenic?

Sanyrene is hypoallergenic.
There have been no reported cases of any allergic reaction following 20 years of hospital use.

Indications

When should I use Sanyrene?

Sanyrene is specifically indicated for patients at risk of developing a pressure ulcer.
Sanyrene is also indicated for redness (erythema) which disappears with finger pressure.

Use

How can I use Sanyrene?

Apply 1 spray of Sanyrène onto areas at risk of pressure ulcer development (heel, sacrum…)
Apply gently using the fingertips for one minute.
Repeat application 2 to 3 times a day, on each area at risk, every time the patient is repositioned.

Preventing the occurrence of pressure ulceration in hospitalised elderly patients. GIPPS study: Geriatric Incidence and Prevention of Pressure Sores

Meaume S; et al. J. Wound Care. 2005; Vol 14, n°2 : 78-82.

  • Objective: To evaluate the clinical impact of using Sanyrène where there is a risk of acquiring a pressure ulcer.
  • Methods: An observational, prospective survey involved 1121 patients at high or very high risk of pressure ulceration. Patients were followed up for eight weeks.
  • Results: Regarding the incidence of sacral pressure ulcers in high-risk patients, the figures are 16.3% and 15.6% for the “absence of local treatment” and “use of topical Emollient/Protective agents” groups respectively, versus 7.3% in the Sanyrène group, proving a reduction of 53% in the incidence of sacral pressure ulcers with Sanyrène.
