Can biofreeze burn your skin

Contents

Scientifically proven to help you feel no limits

Backed by Science, trusted by clinical professionals

The fast acting, menthol based formula of Biofreeze provides you powerful pain relief when directly applied to the skin. In fact, clinical studies have shown that those who use Biofreeze decrease their pain twice as much as those who don’t.

Pain Gate Theory

Pain happens when your receptors send a signal from your spine to your brain. Cold sensations, like menthol, stimulate receptors to block those signals to relieve pain. #FeelNoLimits

Our Unique Formula

Powered by Menthol

Menthol stimulates cold receptors that create a cooling sensation on and under your skin, helping to relieve pain. Our formula has optimized the ideal menthol concentration.

Proven To Work

Contrary to popular belief, ice doesn’t reduce swelling but it does reduce pain. Biofreeze induces the exact same response as ice, only faster. You’re also less likely to experience stiffness, skin irritation, temporary pain and numbness, and the inactivity required during application as you would with ice.

Safer Pain Relief

Applying Biofreeze directly to the skin can bring targeted and effective pain relief without the risks that come with an oral pill.

Overcome Pain And Get Back To Your Best Fast

The secret weapon for fast-acting, powerful pain relief trusted by athletes and clinical professionals.

Sports cream warnings urged after teen’s death

NEW YORK — Arielle Newman was a high school track star who suffered from the typical aches and pains that result from a grueling training regimen. For relief, she covered her legs with large amounts of muscle cream.

The 17-year-old died from an accidental overdose of methyl salicylate, the wintergreen-scented ingredient found in liniments like BenGay, Icy Hot and Tiger Balm, the New York City medical examiner’s office said last week. The death was the first of its kind in the city, authorities said.

Experts said the death of Newman, a cross-country runner for Notre Dame Academy on Staten Island, points to a need for clearer warnings about risks, especially because muscle creams have become a staple in locker rooms around the country.

“There has to be a heightened awareness that these products are something that needs to be used under medical supervision,” said Dr. Gerard Varlotta, director of sports rehabilitation at the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine at New York University Medical Center.

Newman put the muscle cream on her legs and used adhesive pads containing the anti-inflammatory, plus an unspecified third product, said Ellen Borakove, a spokeswoman for the medical examiner.

Excessive use
“There were multiple products, used to great excess, and that’s how she ended up with high levels,” Borakove said. The products were used and the chemical absorbed over time, rather than from a single instance of overuse, she said.

Although no clear documentation exists on deaths resulting from the application of muscle cream, experts said they have never heard of one other than Newman’s.

Johnson & Johnson, the maker of BenGay, expressed sympathy to the Newman family and said in a statement that the product “is safe and effective when used as directed to provide relief from minor arthritis pain, sore, aching and strained muscles and backaches.”

Chattem Inc., the maker of Icy Hot, did not return a call Tuesday seeking comment.

The labels on both products say to stop using them if “condition worsens or symptoms persist for more than 7 days.”

The labels also say to keep the products out of the reach of children.

      Rates of women who are opting for preventive mastectomies, such as Angeline Jolie, have increased by an estimated 50 percent in recent years, experts say. But many doctors are puzzled because the operation doesn’t carry a 100 percent guarantee, it’s major surgery — and women have other options, from a once-a-day pill to careful monitoring.

‘One-swallow-to-kill list’
“It’s on my one-swallow-to-kill list for kids,” said Dr. Thomas Kearney, who directs a poison control center and is a professor of pharmacy at the University of California at San Francisco.

Topical application of methyl salicylate can be hazardous if it is smeared over 40 percent of the body, if someone has a skin condition or if another medication interacts negatively with the products, Kearney said.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration should mandate the warning labels also include that the products contain aspirin, which can be harmful for some consumers, including those with asthma, Varlotta said.

“There are warnings, but I don’t think they’re strong enough. I don’t think they’re direct enough,” he said. “There’s nothing here that says ’contains an aspirin product.”’

Kimberley Rawlings, a spokeswoman for the FDA, said the agency is aware of Newman’s death. “We are looking into it,” she said. She would not say whether the labeling requirements for methyl salicylate products might be changed.

Methyl salicylate is not the only common pain reliever that can be dangerous if used improperly.

Accidental poisonings from acetaminophen, best known by the Tylenol brand, are the nation’s leading cause of acute liver failure.

A big problem is that people don’t read warning labels on over-the-counter drugs, said Rebecca Burkholder, vice president for health policy at the National Consumers League.

“People are thinking if it’s on the shelf at their local drugstore that it’s harmless,” Burkholder said. “And they’re going to take as much as they need to make the pain go away.”

How to Neutralize Bengay

Bengay is a muscle cream used to relieve muscle aches and pain due to arthritis and strain. Bengay’s main active ingredients in most of its products are menthol and methyl salicylate. These ingredients usually help to relieve muscle pain, but in some cases they can be too strong depending on the sensitivity and place of application of the user. If you do find that you need to remove Bengay in a hurry, don’t worry; chances are you have the solution in your home.

Bengay is a muscle cream used to relieve muscle aches and pain due to arthritis and strain 1. Bengay’s main active ingredient in all of its products is menthol and in most of its products also menthyl saliylate 1. These ingredients usually help to relieve muscle pain but in some cases they can be too strong depending on the sensitivity and place of application of the user. If you do find that you need to remove Bengay in a hurry, don’t worry, chances are you have the solution in your home 1.

Blot off any excess Bengay with the facial tissue, toilet paper, or paper towels 1. Do not rub the affected area because this could make the Bengay absorb even more into your skin 1.

Saturate a cotton ball in olive oil.

Blot the affected area with the saturated cotton ball. Repeat until the burning sensation lessens.

Wash the affected area with soap and cool water to remove the olive oil. Use cool water because warm water will open your pores allowing more Bengay to penetrate the skin 1.

Pat the skin with the towel to dry. Do not rub the towel against the skin.

Tips

Vegetable or Canola oil can be substituted for the olive oil. Do not wash the Bengay off with soap and water before applying the olive oil. The water (especially if it is warm) could open up your pores, allowing the Bengay to penetrate even further into your skin.

Warnings

If the burning sensation persists and is severe, it may be necessary to seak medical help. Follow the Bengay manufacturer’s instructions. Never apply Bengay to chaffed or sensitive skin such as lips or genitals.

The Wrap Up

Bengay’s main active ingredient in all of its products is menthol and in most of its products also menthyl saliylate 1. Blot off any excess Bengay with the facial tissue, toilet paper, or paper towels 1. Use cool water because warm water will open your pores allowing more Bengay to penetrate the skin 1.

If you have ever experienced a sprain, you know how inconvenient it can be to locate an icepack so that you can quickly apply it to your injury. After all, not everyone is “lucky” enough to get hurt at a home and have a bag of frozen peas on hand when it happen.

Even if you just have sore muscles from a strenuous workout, experts advise that you apply ice to relieve pain and speed up recovery. Biofreeze is a pain relieving gel that provides the same effect as ice, in a convenient, portable form.

Biofreeze is an analgesic that is useful for treating not only sprains and sore muscles, but also arthritis and other types of joint pain. It comes in gel, spray or roll-on form, and is a type of cryotherapy (cold therapy). Its active ingredient is menthol (from the mint family of plants), which causes your brain to interpret the nerve signals being sent as a sensation of cold, triggering a reduction in inflammation.

The cold therapy of Biofreeze works by causing ligand molecules to attach themselves to your nerve’s cold receptors, which effectively helps to numb the area, interfering with pain signals traveling to the brain. Its menthol also induces vasodilation, which increases blood flow to the injured area, allowing cellular waste products to be swept away more efficiently and for healing oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to the cells.

Other herbal ingredients included in Biofreeze are Ilex Paraguariensis (also known as Yerba mate, a plant native to South America with antioxidant properties), Arnica, Calendula, Aloe, Boswellia, Green Tea, Burdock, Lemon Balm and vitamin E. All of these have been used for centuries in treating tissue injuries such as bruises, sprains and strains. Camphor, another ingredient in Biofreeze, has both numbing and antiseptic properties.

You can massage the gel into your skin (or apply it with the roll-on or spray) up to four times a day. It can also be useful before any type of therapy, such as chiropractic care or physical therapy. It can help relieve the pain that would interfere with you getting the most out of your treatment. Although it does not require a prescription, Biofreeze is not sold in stores. However, it is available for purchase hereat our chiropractic office in Woburn. Call us to buy a tube or place your order.

Benefits of BioFreeze

Joint pain and muscle soreness are conditions that almost everyone has experienced at least once in their lives. Some people resort to pharmaceutical drugs to help relieve the pain and while this could help, there are alternatives to pain relief.

This is where BioFreeze comes in…it is a modern health product that has been specifically developed to address both acute and chronic pain.

How does BioFreeze Work

When your body is limited by pain and unable to exercise, the healing process can take a long time. BioFreeze helps in breaking the cycle of pain and facilitates the therapeutic effect by relieving pain.

The method is known as ‘gating’ or ‘Gate Control Theory’. In this theory, the menthol acts on the skin’s specific sensory receptors and blocks the other receptors from sending pain signals to the brain. BioFreeze stimulates the cold receptors in the skin and helps reduce pain in a way that’s quite similar to ice application or cryotherapy.

BioFreeze helps provides relief from numerous forms of injuries and ailments such as:

– Shoulder and arm discomfort

– Back pain

– Arthritis pain

– Painful joints

– Ankle or foot pain

– Muscle soreness or strain

– Sports injuries

BioFreeze also helps support the recovery process from injuries. Even if you’re not an athlete, it is useful to have it in the house as it can help provide comfort for sprained or twisted ankles.

For athletes, it can help them endure pain longer as well as help in the healing process. If the injury is minor knock, most of the time the coach or team doctor will apply a product like Biofreeze to the affected area for quick relief so that the player/athlete can continue with the game/event.

BioFreeze gel is very simple to use as it can be applied on any area of the body that requires treatment. The best thing about it is that it acts almost immediately, without you having to wait minutes or hours for the effects to take place.

Some people have found that heating the desired area a little bit before applying BioFreeze can help enhance the effects of this gel. This is because the heat helps the muscles relax which promotes improved blood flow to the area and ultimately faster relief and recovery.

Helping with Acute and Chronic Pain

BioFreeze has been around for more than 20 years and its cryotherapy effects have managed to bring much needed relief to various strains and sprains. If applied after an acute injury or strenuous activity it lowers the pain as the metabolic demand for the tissues is reduced.

BioFreeze can be also used on muscle spasms as it allows those muscles to relax faster, helping the recovery process.

Chronic pain in some cases can actually be worse than acute pain. Whereas acute pain is usually more intense, it wears off fairly quickly. However, chronic pain is usually associated with long term discomfort which can have a negative effect on a person’s quality of life…impacting their movement, sleeping patterns and other areas of their daily life.

One condition that is always associated with chronic pain is arthritis. As there is no cure for arthritis, those suffering from this condition have to resort to finding ways to ease their pain and/or make it more manageable. Most of the time this means taking prescription painkillers which can have serious side effects.

As a topical painkiller BioFreeze is an invaluable form of pain relief for various muscle strains and joint conditions like arthritis.

Other features of BioFreeze include:

– Quick and easy application

– Fast penetration

– Natural, non-greasy, non-staining formula

– Not tested on animals

– 100% paraben-free

If you want to have something in your home or in your gym bag that can give you instant relief from muscle pain and minor strains, then you should seriously consider using BioFreeze. You can read more about this product by clicking here…

It’s just how it works — you get hurt, but relief is not there when you need it. Whether it’s a sprain or sore muscles from a workout, locating an ice pack so you can apply it quickly can be a challenge if you’re not at home. That’s where Biofreeze can be of help — it’s a pain relieving analgesic that provides the same effect as ice, in a convenient, portable form.
Biofreeze is useful for treating not only sprains and sore muscles, but also arthritis and other types of joint pain. It comes in gel, spray or roll-on form, and is a type of cryotherapy (cold therapy). Its active ingredient is menthol (from the mint family of plants), which causes your brain to interpret the nerve signals being sent as a sensation of cold, triggering a reduction in inflammation.
The cold therapy of Biofreeze works by causing ligand molecules to attach themselves to your nerve’s cold receptors, which effectively helps to numb the area, interfering with pain signals traveling to the brain. The menthol in Biofreeze also induces vasodilation, which increases blood flow to the injured area, allowing cellular waste products to be swept away more efficiently and for healing oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to the cells.
Besides menthol, Biofreeze contains other herbal ingredients including Ilex Paraguariensis (also known as Yerba mate, a plant native to South America with antioxidant properties), Arnica, Calendula, Aloe, Boswellia, Green Tea, Burdock, Lemon Balm, and vitamin E. All of these natural ingredients have been used for centuries to treat tissue injuries such as bruises, sprains, and strains. Camphor, another ingredient in Biofreeze, has both numbing and antiseptic properties.
How do you use Biofreeze?
You can massage Biofreeze gel into your skin (or apply it with the roll-on or spray) up to four times a day. It can also be useful for any therapy, such as chiropractic care or physical therapy. When applied ahead of time, Biofreeze can help relieve the pain that would have interfered with you getting the most out of your treatment.

The Basics of Biofreeze and Cold Therapy

What is cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is also called “cold therapy”. It includes using low temperatures to relieve pain, soreness, and swelling after injury or surgery. Examples of cryotherapy include ice packs, ice baths, and Biofreeze (which creates a cold sensation).

What is a topical analgesic?

“Topical” means applied on the skin (unlike oral pain medication), while “analgesic” means used for pain relief. All forms of Biofreeze are topical analgesics.

What is Biofreeze?

Biofreeze is a topical analgesic. The gel, spray, patch, roll-on, and cream can be applied to your skin providing cool relief and reducing your muscle and joint pain. The active ingredient in Biofreeze is menthol.

When was Biofreeze invented?

Biofreeze was invented in 1991 by a scientist who was looking for a way to relieve his grandmother’s arthritis pain. Over time, different forms of Biofreeze were created and a Classic and Professional line were developed.

The Research Behind Biofreeze

How does Biofreeze work?

Biofreeze, like other topical analgesics, is thought to work due to the “Pain Gate Theory”, also known as the “Gate Control Theory”.

You feel pain when your nerve receptors send a signal from the point of pain to your spinal cord and then to your brain. The cold sensation “counter irritant” caused by the menthol in Biofreeze blocks the nerves that signal pain, so you feel a cooling sensation instead.

You can see an illustration of how Biofreeze works as part of the Gate Control Theory below.

How does Biofreeze work compared to ice?

Biofreeze and ice are both forms of cryotherapy. Both can help relieve your pain, but Biofreeze is proven to be the superior choice. In a clinical study, Biofreeze decreased pain nearly two times as much as ice. It was also rated as more comfortable than ice and was preferred by patients. It also lasted longer than ice.

With Biofreeze you can reduce your pain and are more likely to avoid the inconvenient side effects of ice, like stiffness, skin irritation, and numbness. Plus, you don’t need to stay inactive during application.

What if I still prefer ice over Biofreeze?

If you still prefer ice, try Therapearl Color Changing Hot and Cold Packs. The 2-in-1 packs can be frozen in the fridge for cold therapy or heated for microwave for hot therapy. The packs are reusable and designed for use on specific body parts, like your shoulder or ankle. Each pack has a strap to secure it during use, eliminating one of the nuisances of using ice – you can still move around during application!

What does the research say about using Biofreeze for pain relief?

In addition to the studies comparing Biofreeze and ice, Biofreeze has been used in a number of other studies. One study wanted to discover if Biofreeze could help improve the treatment of lower back pain. Researchers found that by using Biofreeze combined with chiropractic care, back pain was significantly reduced compared to the group that only received chiropractic care.

Another study examined using Biofreeze to relieve DOMs (delayed onset muscle soreness) pain. The participants using Biofreeze experienced significantly less muscle pain compared to the group that used a gel placebo. Biofreeze provided maximum DOMs pain relief within an hour and lasted up to five hours in this study.

What do customers say about Biofreeze?

Our customers love all forms of Biofreeze. Here are some of the reviews we’ve received.

Biofreeze Spray

“Love Biofreeze! This is a wonderful product! We use it for sore backs, muscles, etc. !”

– D. Carter, Amazon Customer

Biofreeze Roll-On

“I was first recommended Biofreeze by a friend after I ran a very intense mile in P.E. My muscles were screaming in unbearable pain and I was searching for something that could ease my agony. After gently rolling on Biofreeze, I was immediately relieved of my soreness and cramps, although I certainly was not cured completely.

My mom purchased a Biofreeze roll-on for myself and I soon found its use is endless. I have been using it for several months now and have never stopped loving it. As a middle school student, I partake in sports, which result in persistent muscle sores in my arms, legs, and neck. I use the product after track practice, before and after swim practice, and during swim meets. The portable, cylindrical canister is convenient, easy to carry in a backpack or sports bag, and quick and simple to apply. After long hikes or a day of working in the yard, Biofreeze is one of the first things I run to for pain relief.

Biofreeze is great for sporadic aches, muscle cramps, soreness, and any other type of dull, throbbing pain…The relief comes almost instantaneously- around zero to 30 seconds after being applied- and is long-lasting. The resulting relief feels like your sore area has been stuck into a cooler filled with ice. The pain is immediately replaced with comfortable numbness and a cooling, tickling sensation… although it smells strongly of menthol (which I personally like the scent of), the smell fades away quickly while the relief does not…

I highly recommend using Biofreeze if you suffer from either chronic or sporadic pain. It consistently relieves my soreness and is both great to use and transport. This type of cold therapy is just the sort I need, especially after a tiring sports practice or workout.”

– smartie_mama, Amazon Customer

Biofreeze Gel

“I purchased this because I was looking for ANYTHING that might help the pain of my rotator cuff injury…

I was pretty skeptical of all the options out there that claim pain relief, because…well, if medications can’t cut it, then what’s to say this is better? But I was getting desperate for some relief from the constant pain.

I’ve used Biofreeze for a week now, and I’m honestly stunned by how much this has helped me!…It took about ten minutes for it to kick in. But once it did…wow…The pain faded to a dull roar, and that was enough to make me want to cry with relief. I figured it would last for only a few minutes, but even that was enough for me.

About thirty minutes later, it was still working. I fell asleep. What really surprised me was the feeling when I woke up in the morning. The freeze effect was gone by then, of course, but my shoulder actually felt better. It was so strange, because I knew it couldn’t be working all those hours later. I used it again and went about my day…the pain was less. Then I used it the second night, and this time the relief was even greater. By the third night I had decided that I will buy more of this…

I’m not sure how it works, but at this point I’ve just decided that it WORKS, and that’s enough for me….the gel feels very light on the skin, massages in beautifully, and leaves very little residue behind. I like that it’s very easy to spread over the skin and absorbs fast.

All in all, this is a great product. I’m looking forward to trying the professional formula!”

– Shannon Lee, Amazon Customer

I can’t get the Biofreeze spray to work / open, what do I do?

If you look down at your Biofreeze spray, directly opposite the side of the sprayer is a very small “dot”. The dot can make it difficult to make the sprayer work initially. If you press with extra force, the seal will break and make spraying possible.

If pressing down firmly on the nozzle is difficult, simply turn the bottle upside down on a table (make sure the sprayer is facing away from you/your face). Then press the container firmly onto the flat table surface to break the seal.

After initially breaking the seal, it should be easy to use the spray nozzle to apply your Biofreeze!

Should I Try Biofreeze for Pain?

If you are experiencing pain, whether resulting from overworked muscles, arthritis, or other life events, there are a number of options outside of traditional medicine you may consider. Biofreeze, sometimes called cold therapy, is a safe and natural alternative pain relief treatment that works well alongside other hand-on therapies like chiropractic care.

What is Biofreeze?

Biofreeze, or cold therapy, consists of applying a topical analgesic containing menthol, which acts quickly to soothe minor pain of the muscles or joints.

The theory behind why Biofreeze is effective lies in the “Gate Control Theory.” When the body experiences stress or trauma, certain receptors communicate the feeling of pain to the brain through the spinal cord. The cold feeling resulting from biofreeze applied to the painful area is assumed to override these pain signals, thus providing relief.

Using cold therapy is also shown to lessen inflammation and swelling, two major causes of joint and muscle pain. Biofreeze may also temporarily manage nerve activity, another contributor to pain.

Biofreeze therapy works similarly to ice in reducing inflammation and improving circulation, but offers more powerful, comfortable, convenient, and long-lasting pain relief.

Biofreeze and Alternative Therapy vs. Traditional Pain Relief

More and more doctors are encouraging their patients to try non-traditional methods of pain relief, like cold therapy and chiropractic, for a number of reasons. First, biofreeze therapy is non-addictive, yet still effective in treating pain. Additionally, cold therapy has a low risk of overdose or negative interactions with other drugs. For these reasons, biofreeze is available without a prescription, making it a convenient alternative pain reliever.

Biofreeze + Chiropractic

For best results, consider combining biofreeze therapy with additional hands-on pain relief methods like chiropractic care. The combination of therapies provides optimal relief for people experiencing pain. For questions, or to schedule an appointment, contact Kennedy Chiropractic today.

What is Biofreeze and how does it work?

Biofreeze, sometimes called “cold therapy,” consists of applying a topical menthol analgesic to soothe minor pain of the muscles or joints.

The active ingredient in Biofreeze is menthol.

Does research support the effectiveness of Biofreeze?

Yes, Biofreeze is FDA-approved and has participated in all FDA-required research studies.

Is Biofreeze FDA-approved?

Is Biofreeze scented?

Biofreeze contains no artificial scents, but does contain menthol, which has a characteristic odor. However, the menthol smell typically goes away minutes after application.

Because it is a topical pain reliever with a low absorption rate, it is unlikely that Biofreeze will negatively interact with other medications. However, it is always smart to consult a healthcare professional before beginning a new treatment.

How do I use Biofreeze?

Biofreeze is a topical analgesic, meaning it can be applied by hand directly to the painful area of the skin, no more than 4 times per day.
