While helping with a class on dutch oven cooking, a young boy was following his brother who went between the two tables and jumped over the pan of coals. The younger boy fell in the pan of coals before we could catch him. I immediately applied burn free from my car stash on his legs, but missed the spot on his arm that must have also touched the coals. The next day you could not tell that the legs had even been in the pan of coals. If it weren't for the 2nd degree blister on his arm, you would never have known that it had happened.

I consider myself a very "prepared" kind of guy. I purchased this product after an incident happened to one of my friends while we were camping. He was smoking while putting gas in his generator...needles to say some type of burn gel was needed, but we didn't have any. This conflicts with my "i'd rather have it and don't need it than need it and don't have it" philosophy. So I purchased this gel not knowing how it worked. Then, one of my friends recently purchased a commercial food trailer and asked me to help light their propane grill, because they couldn't get it lit.
Of course I helped...bad idea.. In my haste I forgot to ask them if they had been trying to light the grill prior to me attempting to light it. Needless to say, I got a chance to do a mild Richard Pryor impersonation. My face and my arms got flash burned by a huge cloud of propane. This gel is a MUST have for anyone. I applied this gel to my burns and I got INSTANT relief. However, I did use about half the bottle, but that was only because if I started to feel any pain I reapplied the gel. I have ordered from EE several times, but I never created a permanent account. I did that today just to post a review on this product. In fact i'm purchasing 6 more bottles. That way I can have one in my vehicles, home, and work.

Relief from Shingles with BurnFree
I purchased a bottle of BurnFree for my first-aid kit. Just this past week I came down with Shingles. The pain from the Shingles was similar to severe burns, with deep, prickly, sharp twinges of pain. In addition, I had small blisters forming across my forehead, brow, and cheek. I placed a small drop of BurnFree gel on a small blister. The next morning, the “test” blister had scabbed over, and the redness was diminished. With the approval of my physician, I covered the additional blisters with the BurnFree gel. Immediately, I had relief from the pain of my Shingles. I found that the gel gave me relief for about 6 hours. It was not necessary for me to use pain medication to ease the burning pain from the Shingles.

- Tech Specs
When using BurnFree Pain Relieving Gel, gently apply a liberal amount to the injured area without rubbing it into the wound. In order for the gel to be fully effective, it is necessary to apply a thick layer over the damaged area.
BurnFree® is classified as a Medical Device by the US FDA and by the European Community. It also carries the "CE" mark as required in Europe.
- Dissipates heat on contact
- Cools burn site and relieves pain
- helps stop the burn progression
- Meets ANSI standard for water-based burn treatment
- Portable, easy to use, and completely water soluble
- Additional Info
The first step in first aid treatment of burns is to cool the burning. BurnFree provides instant relief, soothing and cooling the burn. BurnFree is the most advanced technology in the first aid treatment of burn injuries using a gelling agent which allows the gel to remain stable when exposed to wide temperature variations. This assures that the BurnFree gel is viscous enough for it to remain on the burn wound and not run off.
Burn injuries can be compared to cooking a roast. Just as a roast will continue to cook after it is removed from the oven, a burn injury will continue to deepen as long as the wound is not cooled. When applied early, BurnFree products help to stop the burn progression and minimize the depth of the injury by cooling the wound immediately.
It is completely non-adhesive, nontoxic, and won’t irritate skin. ***BurnFree® is a highly viscous gel that effectively stays on a burn injury rather than running off the wound as water would. BurnFree® 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 germicidal properties, which help to prevent infection and promote healing. BurnFree® contains anti-evaporative, thickening and preservative agents to maintain the gels viscosity and efficacy.
