Is there evidence that this creme and/or ointment: "Helps promote healing of minor burns and cuts, scrapes, skin irritations and sunburn"?
Specifically, is there any testing showing whether:
there is efficacy compared to no treatment
there is efficacy compared to creme/ointment made from identical inactive ingredients only.
I'm looking for answers related to results of testing of this specific product(s), NOT general discussion of "this can't work because homeopathy was proven to not work".
In case the text and the company name aren't a dead giveaway, " 1X HPUS" is supposed to mean that the active ingredient is a homeopathic remedy (but see @Fabian's comment below).
I lumped them together since they seem to have the similar active ingredients; I will accept the answer which pertains to testing either one of those, or both.
Preference is double-blind randomized testing. Duh.
