Biafine cream emulsion, a cult French pharmacy favorite, is a topical non-steroidal cream for treating burns, wounds and irritations. The clinical benefits of Biafine to stimulate all phases of wound healing have been studied in the United States prior to U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval in 2006, and these benefits underscore the heritage of the product's use in France for over 25 years. Biafine contains clinically tested ingredients in an herbal base and its use includes burn dressings, post-treatment for cosmetic and plastic surgery and dermatology treatments (such as sunburn).
Biafine is manufactured by Laboratoire Medix in France as a topical treatment for wounds and burns. Biafine hydrates skin tissue, adding water to healing tissue, softening scars, promoting the body's antibacterial activity and reducing contamination. It is safe to use Biafine daily.
While Biafine is an emulsion, it is non-comedogenic because it stimulates tissue debridement, hydration and regeneration. Initial application may produce a slight tingling sensation from the penetrating properties of the formulation. Biafine has been studied in clinical trials for use after plastic and cosmetic surgery.
Biafine is for topical use only and should not be used on bleeding wounds and skin rashes (especially those caused by an allergic reaction). All wounds, burns and irritations should be cleaned before application and bandaging. Biafine does not contain any sunscreen, because it is applied after prolonged sun exposure.
