  1. This was so interesting to me! I'm not sure what I was expecting when I saw your title but it wasn't a wound healing cream, which sounds straight out of a movie! This is an amazing discovery and I hope that they share it with the world at an accessible price. I feel many amazing advances and discoveries happen all the time. but sometimes we don't hear of it because it's so out of our bracket.
