The Science Behind Our Pain Relief + Recovery Cream

The Science Behind Our Pain Relief + Recovery Cream

We take pride in offering the latest formulations that combine natural healing traditions with clinically tested medical ingredients. Our founder, Dr. Warner, is an orthopedic surgeon who uses plant-based therapies and surgical modalities in her practice alongside each other – to the benefit of her patients.

All of our products are developed with this unique methodology in mind, and today we’re looking at the science behind our Pain Relief + Recovery Cream.

Behind The Ingredients

Our Pain Relief + Recovery Cream is an extra-strength, full-body option for fast and lasting pain relief. It targets tight and dysfunctional myofascial regions that lead to pain and movement problems.

This is an ideal option for those who are active and want to stay that way. Its soothing ingredients help fight stiffness, pain, and inflammation so you can recover faster and return to the activities you love.

Here’s how they work together for your benefit:

PEA (palmitoylethanolamide)

It calms pain and sensitivity when massaged into the affected area. Its anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving properties encourage fast-acting, natural recovery from muscle, joint, and ligament pain. This is a naturally occurring molecule that is well-known to reduce inflammation around nerves and in muscles.

Menthol Crystals

Menthol cools on contact to alleviate sensitivity, reduce joint and muscle pain, and calm skin irritation. Menthol has also been shown to help hydrate the skin and lessen the appearance of dark spots. Menthol is a great natural remedy for the sensation of pain.

Turmeric (curcumenoids)

When used topically, turmeric can aid in healing your skin. It helps diminish the appearance of surface-level scarring and can even assist in wound healing - thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.

Essential Oil Blend

This blend of essential oils includes Peppermint, Frankincense, Bergamot, and Wintergreen. These oils relieve pain, muscle spasms, inflammation, and skin irritation, and they also offer aroma-therapeutic properties.

Rosehip Oil

When applied to the skin, rosehip oil hydrates the skin, lightens scars and imperfections, and provides antioxidant protection to the skin to block free radicals. Free radicals can damage virtually every cell in your body if left unchecked - so you want to make sure you’re adding antioxidants to all of your daily routines.

A Convenient Option For Daily Recovery

and what you need to look for

Our Pain Relief + Recovery Cream can be used anywhere you’re experiencing pain, inflammation, joint stiffness, or muscle soreness. 

This formulation is perfect for daily use – simply spread a thin layer wherever you need it most, for fast, natural relief that lasts.

We also included Turmeric in our new Joint Health Multi for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. 

This new multi is a great addition to your wellness routine – it’s designed to quickly and naturally diminish joint discomfort, stiffness, and inflammation – helping you maintain your mobility over time.
