Marine polysaccharides (MPs) are an eco-friendly and renewable resource with a distinctive set of biological functions and are regarded as biological materials that can be in contact with tissues and body fluids for an extended time and promote tissue or organ regeneration. Skin tissue is easily invaded by the external environment due to its softness and large surface area. However, the body's natural physiological healing process is often too slow or suffers from the incomplete restoration of skin structure and function. Functional wound dressings are crucial for skin tissue engineering. Herein, popular MPs from different sources are summarized systematically. In particular, the structure-effectiveness of MP-based wound dressings and the physiological remodeling process of different wounds are reviewed in detail. Finally, the prospect of MP-based smart wound dressings is stated in conjunction with the wound microenvironment and provides new opportunities for high-value biomedical applications of MPs.
