For use in treatment rooms or home use. BioFreeze was created by Dr. Danni King, an internationally known botanical chemist. BioFreeze contains an herbal extract from a South American holly shrub. ILEX is used around the world in various health and wellness formulations. The result is a fast-acting, deep penetrating, long lasting pain reliever.
BioFreeze can effectively help relieve pain from sore muscles, muscle sprains, back, shoulder, neck pain, arthritis, painful ankle, knee, hip and elbow joints, and muscular strains. Use BioFreeze to relieve pain prior to ultrasound treatments, massage therapy, soft tissue trigger point therapy, rehabilitation exercises and pre and post workout stretching.
Biofreeze products are classified as topical analgesics, which work through a ‘counter irritant’ mechanism. This means that the menthol in Biofreeze creates a sensation that overrides pain signals to the brain. This process is known as ‘Gate Control Theory’, where nerve impulses from one stimulus block the nerves containing pain signals to the brain. Recent research also suggests that menthol may stimulate cold receptors in the skin that may help regulate pain as well.

Great muscle refief product
I use Biofreeze for me and my husband. It helps to give relief to sore achey muscles. Thanks for a great product!
Best topical product for joint & muscle pain I have ever found. Love it.
Works amazingly well on painful joints & muscles & also itchy skin (numbs it beautifully). It was the only things that got me through chicken pox as an adult without going crazy. Excellent product.
It is the best thing I have found. It is amazing
