The number-one clinical pain reliever now has an enhanced formulation and a new colorless option.

Performance Health Introduces New, Improved Biofreeze Pain Reliever, MASSAGE MagazineAkron, Ohio – Dec. 23, 2011 – Performance Health has introduced a new, improved Biofreeze® Pain Reliever. This new product will be available for purchase Jan. 1, 2012.

For more than 20 years, Biofreeze Pain Reliever has been helping people reduce their pain and manage discomfort. This market leading topical analgesic provides relief for millions of individuals suffering from sore or strained muscles, shoulder and arm discomfort, neck, hip and leg pain, back pain, painful joints, ankle and foot pain, and pain associated with bruising or arthritis.

“We took the number-one clinically used and recommended topical analgesic and improved it based on customer feedback. The result is a formula that is preferred by 4 out of 5 topical analgesic users(1). We made it better in three key ways,” stated Doug Stuckey, senior product manager of Performance Health. “First, we made the new formula more natural by adding an enhanced botanical blend and removing the paraben and propylene glycol. Next, we added two new effective skin conditioners so it applies easier and penetrates quickly. And finally, we created a colorless option for patients and practitioners who prefer dye-free products.”

New, improved Biofreeze is 100-percent paraben-free and propylene glycol-free, and is available in green and colorless (dye-free) versions. Its new botanical blend includes ilex, arnica, aloe, boswellia, calendula, green tea, burdock root and lemon balm. Free product samples, custom printed with a practice name and phone number, can be ordered to match the practitioner’s formula preference—either green or colorless.
