Having worked as a PA in Primary Care for 30 yrs, I bought some Burn Free gel many yrs ago. I was dubious abt the claims, but an EMT who was in the store told me that he'd applied it to what should have been a 2nd degree burn the night before; there wasn't even a blister. So I've kept some in the refrigerator ever since--because most of my burns occur in the kitchen from, usually from the oven. And I've never again have had a burn. The cold gel (from the refrigerator) also helps cool the burned skin. I also have the "Burnfree Emergency Burn Care Kit" in my emergency medical supplies kit.

BurnFree® is a highly viscous gel that effectively stays on a burn injury rather than running off the wound as water would. BurnFree® is is 100% water soluble, which means it rinses off completely from a burn injury for any further examination and treatment. BurnFree® carries trace amounts of a natural extract called Melaleuca Alternafolia, or Tea Tree Oil. This extract is considered in many countries to have natural anti-germicidal features, which help to prevent infection and promote healing. BurnFree® contains anti-evaporative, thickening and preservative agents to maintain the gels viscosity and efficacy.
