Ouchie Powder has been scientifically tested
What is Ouchie Powder?Ouchie Powder has been scientifically tested to be a disaccharide sugar known as β-D-galactopyranosyl-(1→4)-D-glucose. It is a lactose powder which is a naturally derived dairy by-product that has been refined into a soft, fine, talc-like powder.
Where is Ouchie Powder made?The dairy product from which Ouchie Powder is derived is sourced from cows raised in one of the most pristine environments on earth; New Zealand. These picturesque pastures in New Zealand are untouched by the overcrowded and over-polluted cities where unlike the vast majority of commercial wound management products are manufactured.
Why do we need assistance in healing wounds?We know that the human body has the ability to heal itself but sometimes our bodies need the assistance of a product like Ouchie Powder because there can be numerous factors that can stop or slow down an individual’s body’s ability to coagulate blood and repair its tissue itself.
Here are a few factors that decrease the changes in the body’s ability to heal:
- Metabolic deficiencies such as diabetes, venous or arterial disease
- Variations in wound structure such as depth, size and wound location
What makes Ouchie Powder ideal for wounds?The healing factors that decrease the changes in the body’s ability to heal have been perfectly addressed with Ouchie Powder. The wound location, the wound shape and infection are addressed by Ouchie Powder's ability to cover any shape or sized wound no matter where on the body it is located.
The natural antibiotic properties of Ouchie Powder work to prevent infection while absorbing excess blood and instigating fast coagulation.
How does Ouchie Powder work?Ouchie Powder works to activate the coagulation cascade, stimulating blood platelets into forming an aggregated mesh of cross-linked fibrin proteins to form a clot and stop bleeding. The process is referred to as fibroplasia.
Ouchie Powder has been proven to accelerate the healing process by stimulating fibroblast cells to enter the wound site and begin laying down an extracellular matrix of collagens, glycosaminoglycan, reticular and elastic fibres and glycoproteins which form the fundamental building blocks of skin repair.

Who has tested Ouchie Powder?Independent scientific testing has been conducted by Trinity BioActives in Wellington, New Zealand. Trinity Bioactives specialize in developing, testing and confirming the efficacy of human and animal nutraceuticals. Paul Davies a renowned scientist and entrepreneur from Trinity Bioactives lead the testing on Ouchie Powder.
How was the testing done?The testing was done on both human and animal skin cells. It was completed utilizing a modified TBL cell proliferative assay (SOP: TBL-XCP 7.0). Here, human skin fibroblasts were cultured to confluence in 24 well plates. Once confluence was attained, a circular wound was created (6mm in diameter) and the cells from within the ring were removed. 1 mg of Ouchie Powder was applied to each of the 24 well plates.
What were the results of the Ouchie Powder testing?Once the 1mg of Ouchie Powder was applied to each of the plates minus the controlled plates, it was left to do its thing. Each wound was measured at 24 hours, 48 hours and 72 hours. Each time the wound was measured it reduced in size.
The results of the test are as follows:
- At 24 hours the Ouchie Powder had reduced the wound size by 18.3%
- At 48 hours the Ouchie Powder had reduced the wound size by 89.4%
- At 72 hours the Ouchie Powder had reduced the wound size by 100%
How was the testing controlled?
All testing was completed in triplicate and tested against controls. The wound areas were measured both digitally and graphically. The results show a strong and significant promotion of wound closure and cell regeneration when compared to the untreated control which had not healed within the 72-hour time frame.
Was Ouchie Powder tested on real people?After seeing the results of the live tissue culture, it proved Ouchie Powder is an efficient and safe product that could now be tested on real subjects. It was time to put it to a live test, Ouchie Powder was tested on both animals and humans.
What discoveries were made when the test results from the real subjects came in?Feedback provided from these test groups confirmed that not only were their wounds being healed just as they had replicated in the lab but also some surprising effects on other conditions such as rashes, headaches and acne treatments.
More testing?The significant impact that Ouchie Powder has made on rashes, headaches, acne treatment and other conditions warrants further research and investigation. Further testing will be conducted to verify Ouchie Powders' applications beyond the scope of wound healing.
