Burnshield hydrogel has been specially formulated for optimal emergency burn care. Containing tea-tree oil which is naturally anti-microbial and prevents infection, this hydrogel effectively dissipates heat in a burn or scald. This reduces further skin and tissue damage, aiding pain relief and healing. The hydrogel is viscous and has a high water content so that burn wounds continue to be cooled and hydrated, even after initial application. It is suitable for treating all burns, ranging from sunburn to 3rd-degree burn areas.
