Intended purpose

StrataXRT is intended for prevention and treatment of Radiation Dermatitis. StrataXRT is a self-drying,

non-sticky, transparent, silicone gel formulation that lightly bonds to the most superficial skin layer,

protecting the acid mantle of the skin, allowing optimal hydration and reducing the skin's acute

inflammatory response seen with radiation dosing and first and second degree burns. When used as

directed StrataXRT dries to form a protective flexible wound dressing that is gas permeable and

waterproof which hydrates and protects toxic skin areas following radiation therapy
