Why Biafine Emulsion?
Biafine is a very hydrating emulsion that’s semi-occlusive.
The texture is elegant and silky rather than thick and heavy, which is one of the reasons it’s so popular.
It’s been developed to help hydrate and protect the skin, helping keep irritating contaminants and bacteria out.
Biafine also softens and creates a moist environment that promotes healing and reduces scarring.
The clinical benefits of Biafine Emulsion in wound healing were studied in the US and it was granted FDA approval in 2006.
The formulation was found to recruit macrophages to the wound site during all three phases of healing.
More recently, it has been made more broadly popular by beauty influencers and A-listers, including Charlotte Palermino, Gwenyth Paltrow, Elle Macpherson and Lara Stone.
And, like many iconic French formulations, it takes a less-is-more approach to deliver great results.
Biafine Emulsion ingredients
It contains Paraffin, Squalane and Avocado Oil as it key ingredients.
Paraffin is used for its occlusive properties. It forms a physical barrier to protect the skin and prevent water loss. It can help with dryness, itching and barrier impairment. Paraffin-based products are often recommended by dermatologists for use on minor wounds and for skin slugging.
Squalane is very hydrating, soothing and repairing, being especially helpful for the skin barrier. Due to its anti-inflammatory benefits, it’s a great ingredient for anyone with acne or eczema. Squalane is a lipid that’s naturally found in the skin so is highly compatible.
Avocado Oil is a multifaceted ingredient that moisturises, soothes redness and inflammation, accelerates wound healing and promotes skin elasticity. It has both emollient and occlusive properties, thereby making skin feel soft, smooth and supple.
Biafine can be applied to:
- post treated skin
- minor wounds and superficial burns, including sunburn
- radiation dermatitis
- dermal ulcers
- diaper rash
- blemishes (after they have dried out)
Suits all skin types.

Biafine Emulsion review
A brilliant product for burns of any description. I’ve had some sun spots burnt off the back of my hands and applied Biafine to aid the skin’s healing process. As a result, I don’t have any scars or white marks on the back of my hands from the burns. Also it can be used as a face mask to hydrate and soften skin… Apply to a clean face leave for 20 minutes or more and rinse off.
