Princeton, NJ-based Derma Sciences has announced FDA 510(k) approval of its MEDIHONEY Hydrogel Wound and Burn Dressing. This newest entry in the company’s MEDIHONEY line of dressings is indicated for treatment of first and second degree burns. Read the article.
I like the idea of using Mother Nature’s honey for burns, now we need to focus on stopping the decline of the world bee population…maybe because of GMO agriculture and GMO related pesticides? See a blog article and sign the petition, as well as an article on the study showing sharp decline in world bee population.
Unfortunately FDA approval requires animal testing – some poor unwilling animals had to be inflicted with the pain and trauma of 1st and 2nd degree burns in order to prove that a product like MediHoney can help heal the burn….ouch…imagine if that was you…. For more information on animal testing see the SkinCareTV video.
