Biofreeze provides long lasting, fast acting cold therapy pain relief for sore muscles, back aches, sore joints and arthritis.
Applying Biofreeze directly to the skin provides targeted relief without the risks that come with an oral pain killer.
Biofreeze is scientifically proven to reduce pain. It is also less likely that users will experience stiffness, skin irritation and numbness that can often occur with the application of ice.
Biofreeze works by stimulating cold receptors in the skin through evaporation. This creates a cooling sensation which helps to override pain signals.
