FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is SunBurnt® Advanced After-Sun Gel?

SunBurnt is a safe and efficacious treatment for various symptoms of mild and moderate sunburn.

 

Does this mean I don’t need to use sunscreen?

You should always use sunscreen when outside in the sun. Prolonged exposure to solar UV radiation (rays emitted from the sun) can lead to adverse and chronic health effects on the skin, eye and immune system, including sunburn, premature skin aging, cataracts and skin cancer.

Always take precautions when you are exposed to sunlight. You should wear adequate clothing, eye protection and use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 daily. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resistant, broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. This should be reapplied every two hours, or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating.

Newborns should be kept out of the sun. Sunscreens should be used on babies over the age of six months.

How do I know how serious my sunburn is?

Always use sunscreen and reapply often. When sunburns do happen, if you have any question at all as to the seriousness of your sunburn, consult a physician immediately. SunBurnt is formulated for mild to moderate sunburns.

 

Is SunBurnt safe to use?

SunBurnt is manufactured in the USA under strict safety and clinical manufacturing standards as required by the US Food & Drug Administration. It has been dermatologist- and pediatrician-tested to be non-sensitizing, non-irritating and hypoallergenic. It is paraben-free and does not contain any antibiotics, steroids, or analgesics. We always encourage you to read the list of ingredients to make sure you are not allergic to any ingredient, or discuss with your doctor if you are not sure. An allergic reaction to any topical product can happen, so you should stop using the product if you have an allergic reaction. Please check the label for all information and warnings and use as directed.

 

Can I use SunBurnt on my baby?

Always consult with your physician before giving any medicines to children under two (2) years of age.

 

Can I use SunBurnt when I am pregnant?

As we state in the “Warnings” section of the packaging: If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, please seek the advice of your physician before using SunBurnt. Take a tube and package with you, so your physician can read the ingredients before making a recommendation.

 

Where can I find the expiration date for my tube of SunBurnt?

You can find the expiration date on the bottom of the box and on the crimped end of every tube.

 

How does SunBurnt work?

Sunburned skin can feel hot, painful, and dry, and lead to peeling. SunBurnt combines natural ingredients that:

  • immediately cool and rehydrate skin
  • help heal sunburned skin
  • help reduce redness and itching

 

What makes SunBurnt different from the other sunburn products in stores?

Many after-sun products contain Lidocaine, a topical anesthetic and antiarrhythmic drug, and focus primarily on pain relief. SunBurnt is Lidocaine-free, and:

  •  immediately cools and rehydrates overheated skin
  •  helps heal sunburned skin
  •  reduces redness and itching

SunBurnt contains aloe but is non-sticky and absorbs easily, leaving your skin feeling cool, smooth and refreshed.

 

What are homeopathic products?

Homeopathic products are derived from botanical, mineral or biological substances and are classified as either over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription medicines. Homeopathic products are believed to be more clinically effective when they are diluted, typically with purified water or an alcohol solution. SunBurnt’s active ingredients are diluted in ethyl alcohol.

The potency of homeopathic products is expressed on the product label immediately following the product name, and includes a number followed either by “Tinc or MT”, X or C. The number refers to how many times the homeopathic tincture was diluted and the X and C indicate the ratio of the dilution (i.e., 1/10 for X and 1/100 for C). Tinc or MT means the product is a mother tincture, which depending on the properties of the substance, means it is either a 1X or 1C potency.

 

What is homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a natural system of healing that is classified under the category of alternative medicine. Homeopathic medicines are exceptionally safe, and have no side effects or contraindications. Developed by a German physician named Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, Homeopathy has been used to treat disease all over the world for over 200 years, and is especially popular in Europe and Asia.

 

Is homeopathy regulated by the FDA?

Yes. Homeopathy has a long history of use and regulation in the United States. In 1938, Congress passed a law declaring that nonprescription homeopathic remedies are to be regulated by the FDA in the same manner as nonprescription, over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, which means that they can be purchased without a physician’s prescription. All homeopathic remedies are required to meet certain legal standards for strength, quality, purity, and packaging.

In 1988, the FDA required that all homeopathic remedies list the indications for their use (i.e., the medical problems to be treated) on the label. The FDA also requires the label to list ingredients, dilutions, and instructions for safe use.

The guidelines for homeopathic remedies are found in an official guide, the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States, which is authored by a nongovernmental, nonprofit organization of industry representatives and homeopathic experts.
