Biafine ACT is an herbal-based cream sold over the counter only in France, used for over 25 years as the miracle cream for minor burns and sun burns on normal or sensitive skin. BiafineACT stimulates cell regrowth and is especially good for post cosmetic or surgical treatments including microderms and peels, breast augmentation scars and more. The difference (according to the manufacturer) between Biafine and BiafineACT is that ACT is indicated for minor burns, scrapes and sunburns, while Biafine is indicated for 1st and 2nd-degree burns and after radation therapy.

Sephora's blog—"Sylvie Tellier, a former Miss France who now runs the Miss France competition, uses Biafine as a face mask almost nightly. This cream is traditionally used for minor burns and rashes, and every French mother has it in her medicine cabinet. “I love it,” she says. “It makes my skin glow and is really hydrating.”
BiafineACT with Trolamine is a topical non-steroidal cream for treating burns, wounds and irritations. The clinical benefits of Biafine to stimulate all phases of wound healing have been studied in the United States prior to U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval in 2006.
Approved Indications Biafine is used to treat burns, skin irritations, superficial wounds and dryness. Its popularity overseas has been for its hydrating properties and effectiveness on sunburned skin and scrapes. Clinical studies were conducted in the United States for burns, wound healing and radiation. According to the Biafine package insert, the FDA has approved Biafine for use in full thickness wounds, pressure sores and dermal ulcers (includes lower leg ulcers), superficial wounds, first- and second-degree burns, sunburns, dermal donor and graft site management, radiation dermatitis and minor abrasions.
Application Wound and burn management involve methods to enhance tissue regeneration and to minimize infection during the healing process. Since autolytic debridement is the preferred method for removing dead and scarred tissue, moist dressings are needed and must be changed daily. Biafine is liberally applied to the skin and covered with a dressing, such as gauze. The dressing is changed every 24 hours, with reapplication of Biafine.
Effects While Biafine is an emulsion, it is non-comedogenic because it stimulates tissue debridement, hydration and regeneration. It promotes antibacterial activity. Initial application may produce a slight tingling sensation from the penetrating properties of the formulation. Biafine has been studied in clinical trials for use after plastic and cosmetic surgery.
Contraindications and Warnings Biafine is for topical use only and should not be used on bleeding wounds and skin rashes (especially those caused by an allergic reaction). All wounds, burns and irritations should be cleaned before application and bandaging. Biafine does not contain any sunscreen, because it is applied after prolonged sun exposure.
