Creator of celeb-endorsed BURN CREAM MD™, Dr. Diane Madfes, and former NYC firefighter, Tim Brown, will be available for media interviews to help spread awareness about burn prevention and treatment during National Burn Awareness Week (Feb. 7th - 13th), a yearly campaign implemented by Shriners Hospitals for Children.
(PRWEB) January 26, 2010 -- Renowned board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Diane Madfes and www.thebravest.com's Tim Brown, will be available for media interviews to educate the public about burn prevention and treatments during National Burn Awareness Week (Feb. 7th - 13th). Dr. Madfes is the developer of BURN CREAM MD™, a burn treatment and scar prevention cream endorsed by celebrity Chefs Emeril Lagasse and Mario Batali. Mr. Brown is a former FDNY firefighter and 9/11 survivor.
Implemented by Shriners Hospitals for Children over 20 years ago, National Burn Awareness week is a yearly campaign held to raise awareness about burn prevention, a key endeavor of Shriners International Organization. Statistics show that: 1) at least fifty percent of all burns could have been prevented, 2) the most common burns occur in the kitchen, 3) thousands of children are burned every year by hot substances commonly found around the home, and 4) most people don't know how to properly treat burns. If you're thinking butter and ice are the best treatments, think again. Butter seals in the heat, allowing the heat to keep cooking the skin, while ice creates the risk of frostbite on already raw, tender skin.
Dr. Madfes herself witnessed many burns working at her family's restaurant while in medical school. As a result, she spent years developing a product to minimize the pain and scarring associated with 1st and 2nd degree burns. The patent-pending formula of natural ingredients and analgesics delivers immediate pain relief, speeds healing and minimizes scarring. Tested extensively in Lagasse's and Batali's restaurant kitchens, both chefs attest to the cream's efficacy and endorse BURN CREAM MD™.
"I was pleasantly surprised how well BURN CREAM MD™ worked for me and my staff," says Lagasse. "Not only did it absorb quickly leaving a clean feel, it also reduced the sting of my serious burns effectively."
"After applying BURN CREAM MD™ to my burn recently, the pain was immediately dulled and this lasted a long time. The wound healed quickly and I didn't have to stop and think about the pain. I would definitely recommend BURN CREAM MD™ to my chefs, my friends, and my family," says Mario Batali.
Available at www.burncreammd.com, BURN CREAM MD™ (2.5 oz. pump bottle) retails for $29.99, and BURN CREAM MD to Go™, (10 2mL travel packets) for $17.99.
