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 and helps prevent the heat from progression 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 and doesn't evaporate. Water-Jel also contains a small amount of the natural extract Melaleuca Alternifolia, better known as Tea Tree. This has anti-bacterial activity to help prevent infection. Water-Jel also contains thickening agents and preservatives to maintain the gel's viscosity, efficacy and give it a 3-year shelf life.
