How and Why BurnFree Works

BurnFree worksBurnFree works! How? BurnFree gel draws the heat out of burn injuries and into the hydrogel. This cools the burn injury providing pain relief and helps stop the burn progression. BurnFree also keeps the wound site moist and at an appropriate temperature, helping to keep burn victims from entering into shock. BurnFree is a viscous gel.  This allows the exposed nerve endings to be covered by the gel, offering near immediate pain relief.

While water will cool the burn, it is often difficult if not impossible to keep water over the entire burn area and is often times difficult to obtain in remote areas, particularly clean water. Also, a large volume of consistently running water is required to cool even a small burn. BurnFree works best because the BurnFree gel is viscous, meaning that it will stay on the burn and draw out the heat, making it easier and more cost effective to cool the burn with BurnFree than with water. By covering the burn site, BurnFree will also help prevent contamination until medical care is obtained.

Hypothermia is a concern in treating burn victims because loss of skin means loss of heat via radiation and evaporation. Hypothermia occurs when the body loses heat faster than it can produce it, causing a dangerously low body temperature. Using ice on a burn injury will not only lower the temperature of the skin, but can cause vasoconstriction thus increasing the zone of necrosis. Also, using water cold enough to sufficiently cool the burn is conducive to causing hypothermia if used for the indicated 10-20 minutes.

Using BurnFree, a hydrogel, mitigates this risk of hypothermia while providing all of the same benefits of cooling and soothing the burn. BurnFree helps stop the progression of the burn by drawing the heat out.

BurnFree works by relieving the pain, rapidly removing the heat, and cooling the burn.
