Water-Jel is the leading brand of emergency first aid for burns.
Water-Jel is a water-based, water-soluble gel that draws the heat out of a burn while it relieves the pain, cools the skin and protects against airborne contamination. By applying Water-Jel as soon as possible, the heat of the burn is dissipated, helping to prevent the heat from progressing deeper into the skin. The gel consists of 96% water and has the same cooling effects as water, but because it is thick, it stays on the burn. Water-Jel also contains a small amount of the natural extract Melaleuca alternifolia, better known as Tea Tree Oil. This has natural antibacterial properties, helping prevent infection. Water-Jel also contains thickening agents and preservatives to maintain the gel’s viscosity and efficacy.
Water-Jel is available in sterile Burn Dressings, Fire Blankets, Burn Wraps, Face Masks, Topical Cooling Gels and a unique topical gel specifically for sunburns.
