Biofreeze Pain Reliever Declares War on Sore Military Muscles in Afghanistan Featured

Written by SOT Staff

April 10, 2012

$212,000 of Biofreeze Pain Relieving Wipes just headed out to the troops in Afghanistan. That's enough Biofreeze for 25,000 troops. Absolutely amazing!

Packaged in individual foil wraps, this sore muscle relief fits easily into pockets and backpacks and is the perfect on-the-move pain reliever.

With USP-grade menthol as its active ingredient, Biofreeze Wipes provide cooling relief when its 115° in the desert and you've been wearing a backpack and carrying a weapon all day. No need to wait to get back to base for relief.

All thanks to the generosity of an American company, the good folks who make Biofreeze products in Akron, OH.

Why did they do this? Because they're patriots! Many of Performance Health's employees have loved ones serving in the military.

What are the troops saying about it?
The troops ask for this product all the time. In fact an earlier shipment brought the following feedback from a front-line soldier:

Hello all- I would like to thank you for your support over this long year. This last box of Biofreeze was right on the money the night before I received it I was out on a convey which my truck was hit by an IED. All of us in the truck only had minor injuries but some of us had back aches and bruises. It really was perfect time, again thank you so must for your support it means a lot to all of us here. Thank you again. ~~ SFC Daily
