Uses superior spray technology to deliver Biofreeze® Pain Reliever, the number-one clinically recommended topical analgesic

Performance Health Introduces New Biofreeze 360°™ Spray, MASSAGE MagazineAkron, Ohio – Performance Health has introduced its new Biofreeze 360° Spray, the better way to spray Biofreeze. New Biofreeze 360° Spray delivers the number-one clinically recommended topical analgesic using the best spray technology on the market today. This new product will be available for purchase on Jan. 1, 2013.

“New Biofreeze 360? Spray works from any angle, even upside down. We refer to it as the ‘every-which-way’ spray,” stated Doug Stuckey, senior product manager of Performance Health. “The can’s design, described as a ‘bag-on-valve’ technology, ensures a continuous flow of product and uniform spray pattern for better coverage. It’s often difficult for back pain sufferers to get an even application of Biofreeze where they need it most. This 360? Spray, with its ability to spray upside down, makes applying Biofreeze much easier. Arthritic patients sometimes struggle as well with traditional spray pumps due to the required repeat pumping. This product’s continuous flow solves that problem too.”

Unlike traditional aerosol cans that use a solution of a liquid product and propellant under high pressure, bag-on-valve technology houses nitrogen that creates pressure around a sealed bag of product. When the can’s valve is pressed by the user, the inside of the bag is normalized to atmospheric pressure and the nitrogen on the outside of the bag squeezes the bag. This squeezing causes the contents of the bag—Biofreeze Pain Reliever—to be forced out through the valve. No propellant escapes from the can in dispensing.

Like all Biofreeze products, the Biofreeze 360? Spray is paraben-free, propylene glycol free and includes a proprietary herbal blend. All Biofreeze spray products are colorless and use 10-percent menthol. The new Biofreeze 360? Spray is available in a 4-fluid-ounce size.

“We know health care professionals rely on our market leading Biofreeze and Thera-Band brands because we provide much more than just effective, professional quality products,” Stuckey added. “We support our health care partners with free practice-building programs, national brand awareness programs, clinical evidence for our products and patient education tools. This is what truly makes our brands and products special.”
