The Amerigel Story
Amerx Health Care Corporation was founded by John C. Anderson in 1993 to develop and market wound and skin care products for hospitals, wound care centers, nursing homes and physician’s offices. Through extensive research and development, Amerx formulated Oakin®, a proprietary ingredient based on the natural benefits of tannins found in oak trees. Oakin® became the core ingredient for the Amerigel® product line developed to combat bacteria and fungus in hard to heal wounds and skin conditions without the use of antibiotics.
Amerx has grown through the years as a family run company working together to establish a trusted brand that represents quality in the skin and wound care industry.
