Burnshield Hydrogel: Features and Benefits

Available in 125ml and 50ml burn relief spray bottles, Burnshield hydrogel has many features and benefits. 

  • This versatile product is suitable for treating 1st, 2nd and 3rd-degree burns and scalds, including sunburn. 
  • It is non-toxic, non-irritant, and is suitable for use on children.
  • High water content aids continuous heat dissipation.
  • The hydrogel dries clear, making it easier to assess the wound.
  • Easy spray application promotes speed in an emergency, providing complete coverage of the burn wound and easy access to hard-to-reach areas. 
  • Designed for application directly onto skin as well as for use over burn dressings, keeping the covered area hydrated without the need to remove dressings for additional application. 
  • A key Burnshield ingredient, sterile, all-natural tea-tree oil reduces the risk of infection and provides a continuous cooling and soothing effect, aiding pain relief and healing.
  • Burnshield hydrogel is viscous and non-adherent, reducing the risk of attaching to the wound while covering and protecting the burn area.
  • Safe to use on all burns caused by contact with fire, scalds from liquid or steam, thermal contact, exposure to harmful chemicals, electrical burns, and radiation exposure.

When to Use Burnshield Hydrogel Spray

This first aid burn spray is suitable for all burns or scalds, whether minor or severe. It can be used to treat superficial and partial-thickness burns, sunburn, difficult to get-to areas, and rehydration of dressings. Burn injuries are time-critical, so it is essential to cool a burn wound down as soon as it is safe, always within the first 24 hours of the initial injury. 

Burnshield Hydrogel spray is designed for immediate use on a burnt area, reducing infection risk and further heat damage to burnt skin and tissue. When a patient suffers any burn or scald, swift treatment and applying Burnshield Hydrogel spray will aid healing and reduce pain symptoms by dissipating heat and protecting the wound.

This burn relief spray can also be sprayed over a burn dressing to moisten and hydrate a burn wound for 48 hours after initial treatment. The hydrogel’s naturally cooling effects are also suitable to treat minor burns such as sunburn. 

How to Use Burnshield Hydrogel Spray

When treating a burn wound with a Burnshield Hydrogel spray, these are simple steps to follow:

  • Remove any tight or restrictive items from the area, including jewellery or clothing.
  • Do not remove any items firmly stuck to the wound unless they are still hot or smouldering.
  • Do not burst any blisters on the burn area or disturb the wound.
  • Spray Burnshield Hydrogel liberally over the burn wound.
  • Ensure that the Burnshield Hydrogel goes beyond the surface area of the burn.
  • If the burn area is large, apply a Burnshield Dressing to the area and secure it with a bandage.
  • Continue to soak the dressing area with Burnshield Hydrogel. If the dressing is kept moist, it can remain in place for up to 48 hours.
  • Seek medical advice depending on the burn’s depth, size, and severity.
