First steps to better burn outcomes


Burnex is the natural first line treatment for acute burns. It helps to take the first steps towards healing by managing pain and keeping the afflicted area cool post first aid. It does this naturally with a specially formulated moisture donating hydrogel, which consists in excess of 90% water trapped in a proprietary gel that is specifically designed to cool and help provide pain relief.

  • Ease of Transport - To specialist Care
  • Ease of Removal - Water-based Hydrogel formula does not stick to burns and can be easily rinsed off, to limit patient discomfort.
  • Ease of Burn Assessment - Hydrogel is easily removable and does not discolour the burn site, allowing for fast and accurate burn assessment.

    • Pain Relief - Water-based hydrogel acts as a ‘heat sink’ drawing heat out of the burn to provide evaporative cooling, stopping burns from progressing and aiding in pain relief.
    • Hydration - Donates moisture to the wound to minimise the risk of skin dehydration and provide an ideal, moist healing environment. Maintains the cooling effect post running water, which helps minimise tissue damage and hasten healing
    • Skin Integrity - Post-burn infection is a key complication in minor and serious burn injuries. Burnex provides an effective barrier against bacterial contamination to protect from infections. Non-toxic hydrogel is also skin and tissue compatible.

Burns are classified based on the degree of tissue damaged and our skin consists of three layers:

Epidermis - the outermost layer of skin, provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone (Burns here are usually considered as superficial, or 1st degree burns)

Dermis - beneath the epidermis, contains tough connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands (Burns here are usually considered as superficial, partial-thickness burns, or 2nd degree burns).

Hypodermis - deeper subcutaneous tissue, made of fat and connective tissue (Burns that extend here and beyond are usually considered as Deep to full thickness burns, or 3rd degree burns).
