A courageous mum covered almost head-to-toe in burns has created a soothing skin cream - inspired by the sea.
Jane Healy, 56, invented her very own treatment after living with the horrific burns across three quarters of her body since a freak accident turned her into a 'human fireball' aged nine.
Jane was on a camping holiday with her family when the accident left her with burns to 75 per cent of her body.

Aged just nine at the time, she caught fire when a stove on a camp fire blew up in her face.
She was wearing non-fire-retardant pyjamas which melted to her skin, causing the life-changing scars.
She only survived because a quick-thinking neighbour threw a cardboard box over the flames.
But Jane has overcome the trauma and pain of countless skin grafts to launch a new business with her 25-year-old daughter Laura.
Last month, she pitched to Fenwicks and Sea Creme went on sale in January.
She said: "If someone told my childhood self that I would be the one to improve my skin and that one day I would own a business, I'd never have believed it.
"To turn my horrific ordeal into something positive is amazing - I'm so proud of myself."
So far Jane has sold £250 worth of the products.
Now, the mum has 10,000 pots of Sea Creme ready to go and plans to pitch to high street stores Boots and Superdrug.
