I've done some reading, and this stuff is amazing. Could it be that this dust is, Celox?
Celox™ can stop even potentially lethal bleeding fast. It is easy to use (just pour, pack and apply pressure), very safe (tested to class 3 CE Mark standards) and extremely effective. Celox™ saves lives.
When mixed with blood, Celox™ forms a robust gel like clot in 30 seconds. It works independently of the bodies normal clotting processes. Celox’s™ clotting ability has been proven to work in the cold (hypothermia) or in the presence of common anti-coagulants such as warfarin. It generates no heat and will not burn the casualty or care giver.
In clinical tests by the US marines, Celox™ was the only product to give 100% survival. It gave a strong stable MAP (mean arterial blood pressure) and was also the only product to give robust clotting with no rebleeding**.
Celox’s™ safety has been tested to the intense class 3 CE mark standards. Celox™ is made with chitosan. Chitosan is broken down by lysozyme, a human enzyme, to leave glucosamine, a sugar which is normally found in the body***.
Celox™ does NOT use non degrading procoagulant minerals or nano particles such as smectitie or kaolin, which will remain in the body indefinately unless completely removed.
Celox™ is suitable for
A wide range of bleeding wounds
Arterial and venous bleeding
Surface and deep wounds
Lacerations, grazes and minor cuts
Celox™ has been shown to:
Reliably stop arterial bleeding**
Significantly reduce blood loss**
Clot blood containing anticoagulants like Coumadin (warfarin)*
Clot hypothermic (cold) blood*
Generate no heat.

"I'm an EMT and I bought this to keep in my trauma pack. I never thought I would be the one to need this. On a camping trip I suffered a major accident where several tendons, my radial artery and radial nerve were severed...it was bad. I lost quite a bit of blood before celox (35g packet) was applied but with constant pressure blood flow slowed down incredibly. The product resembles a fine sand or sawdust and when applied no heat is produced (one of the reasons I bought this over quick clot). I was about 25 minutes away from the closest trauma center (plus EMS response took about 10 min). I know this product helped save my life. I never write reviews but I just had to for this product. Anyone debating buying this or not should just buy it...you never know whose life it could save."
