Burns are common, especially if you spend a bit of time in the kitchen. It’s so easy to scorch your hand on a cast iron handle or while wrestling something out of the oven.
If you burn yourself and the affected area is larger than 8cm in diameter or has blisters, please seek medical advice. However, if your burn is superficial, you can easily treat it at home.
Whether it’s a splash of hot oil from cooking, sunburn or a curling wand mishap, the medical advice remains the same.
Simple first aid
Run the burn under cold water, to reduce pain and swelling. When the pain has stopped, use a gentle soap to clean the affected area. Apply ManukaRx® ointment if there is no open wound. Cover the affected area loosely with a sterile dressing and change the dressing daily. Any advice contrary to this may be counterproductive and damage the skin further.
Why use ManukaRx as a burn cream?
Manuka oil, the primary ingredient of ManukaRx ointment, has excellent anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. The oil is a cicatrisant, which means it is good for healing damaged skin and preventing scar formation in a natural way. Alongside the fantastic properties of manuka oil, there are a host of skin healing and moisturising ingredients.
Keep the wound moisturised to reduce scarring
A vital ingredient in ManukaRx ointment is beeswax. Not only is it anti-viral and anti-inflammatory, it forms a protective wall, sealing moisture into the skin. It does this without clogging pores. like some other products do, allowing the skin to still remain healthy. Shea butter also provides moisture to the area, along with a healthy dose of vitamins A, E, and F.
To minimise the risk of scarring, avoid letting scabs form. The cocoa butter, sunflower seed oil and turmeric oil in ManukaRx ointment help with regeneration of new skin and assist in healing. And vitamin E in sunflower seed oil helps with wound healing.
The combination of antibacterial, moisturising, and healing properties of ManukaRx ointment make it the perfect treatment for burns. It prevents infection and assists with healing and scar reduction, all with natural ingredients.
