• How does SunBurnt® work?
    • Sunburned skin can feel hot, painful, and dry, and lead to peeling. SunBurnt® combines natural ingredients that:
      1. immediately cool and rehydrate skin
      2. help heal sunburned skin
      3. help reduce redness and itching
    • 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 & rehydrates overheated skin helps heal sunburned skin reduces redness & itching
    • SunBurnt® contains aloe but is non-sticky and absorbs easily, leaving your skin feeling cool, smooth and refreshed.
  • Do SunBurnt® products contain alcohol?
    • SunBurnt® After-Sun Gel, being a homeopathic product, contains some ethyl alcohol as an essential part of each of its active ingredients. Certain homeopathic active ingredients are manufactured through a specialized process of combining herbal, biological or botanical extracts in a mixture of water and ethyl alcohol to a specific dilution.  Other than the active ingredients, there is no separate, “added alcohol” in SunBurnt® Gel. The product has been dermatologist-tested and found to be non-sensitizing to skin. All SunBurnt® products are made without any parabens, sulfates, glycols, PEGs, phthalates and dyes.
    • SunBurnt® Daily After-Sun Lotion is Alcohol-free. Cetearyl alcohol is a skin emollient and should not be confused with SD alcohol or ethyl alcohol. Many consumers are concerned about the drying effects of ethyl alcohol, but this is not a concern associated with cetearyl alcohol.

  • What does the word “Homeopathic” on the SunBurnt® After-Sun Gel label mean?
    • Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine developed by a German physician named Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, that has been used in the treatment of disease for over 200 years. Homeopathic products are derived from botanical, mineral or biological substances and are classified as either over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription medicines. Homeopathic medicines are recognized as being safe, with limited side effects or contraindications, and are regulated by the FDA and can be purchased over the counter, not requiring a prescription
    • SunBurnt® Advanced After-Sun Gel is classified as a homeopathic product under the US Food, Drug & Cosmetics Act. Its active ingredients, Cantharis vesicatoria 3X, Echinacea angustifolia TINC, and Calendula officinalis TINC, are officially monographed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS)
  • What do the suffixes TINC and 3X on to the active ingredient list for SunBurnt® After-Sun Gel mean?
    • SunBurnt® After-Sun Gel’s active ingredients are Cantharis vesicatoria 3X, Echinacea angustifolia TINC, and Calendula officinalis TINC. TINC and 3X both refer to the potency/strength of these ingredients. Homeopathic products are believed to be more clinically effective in small concentrations and are therefore typically diluted in a hydroalcoholic solution (combination of alcohol and purified water). The active ingredients in SunBurnt® After-Sun Gel are diluted in ethyl alcohol. The potency of homeopathic products is expressed on the product label immediately following the homeopathic ingredient name, either as “TINC” or “MT” (mother tincture), or as a number followed by “X” or “C”. Both TINC and MT mean the product is either a 1X or 1C potency. The number before the X or C 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).
