Set to be the latest first aid essential for the home, Acriflex Cooling Burns Gel is proven to provide immediate relief whilst hydrating the skin to minimise scarring and killing bacteria to protect against possible infection. Acriflex Cooling Burns Gel is a breakthrough treatment based on unique OSMO4 technology that’s proven to: • Cool and Soothe - Acriflex Cooling Burns Gel provides an immediate cooling effect to help ease the pain of a burn or scald, minimise scarring and reduce inflammation • Re-Hydrate - Acriflex Cooling Burns Gel encourages the skin to flood the damaged area with moisture • Cleanse - Acriflex Cooling Burns Gel has a proven anti-bacterial formula to kill bacteria and reduce the risk of secondary infection Dr Sarah Brewer, respected GP and published medical author, says: “It’s very common to get a minor burn or scald around the home but many people don’t take them as seriously as they should or know how to treat the damaged area properly. “You should seek to cool the area as quickly as possible – running it under cool water for about 10 minutes before applying an antiseptic to ward off infection. Alternatively, make sure your first aid cabinet has a specifically developed product like Acriflex Cooling Burns Gel which will quickly ease the inflammation, protect against infection and support your skin’s healing process. “Remember, you must never ignore a serious burn: if it’s larger than a postage stamp or has penetrated beyond the first layer of skin you should always seek medical advice.” Acriflex Cooling Burns Gel does not contain preservatives, alcohol or perfume.
