I’ve found some products for temporary pain relief that are really working for me and my family! Finally, something that is helping with some pain I’ve been having and allowing me to get some rest.
Perfecta Products Inc. is the national manufacturer and distributor of the Zim’s product line of naturally-based consumer products. You may have heard of Zim’s Crack Cream? Available in nearly every major retailer in the U.S., the Zim’s line offers a variety of products for topical pain relief, skin care, lip care, elder care and first aid and my family and I had the chance to test out a few of their newest products.
Last year, Perfecta announced the launch of five new products, including (the ones we tested are in bold text):
- Zim’s Advanced Crack Creme with Hydrocortisone: provides temporary relief from itching and rashes associated with minor skin irritations, such as poison ivy, poison oak sumac, insect bites, and dermatitis;
- Zim’s Advanced with Hydrocortisone (spray application): first aid product that helps with a host of skin care issues including rashes, insect bites, eczema and psoriasis;
- Zim’s Advanced Gel with Acemannan: first aid product that helps treat cuts, scrapes, abrasions and burns;
- Zim’s Arnica Max (gel & roll-on applications): provides temporary relief of minor aches and pains of muscle and joints associated with simple backache, arthritis, strains, bruises and sprains;
- Zim’s Max-Freeze for Feet Continuous Spray: provides temporary relief for minor aches and pain for muscles and joints associated with overworked feet, uncomfortable shoes, sore heels, ankle pain.
In addition to Zim’s Advanced, Perfecta Products launched Zim’s Arnica Max. Zim’s Arnica Max includes a proprietary blend of Arnica and Aloe Vera which includes organic Aloe, natural Menthol and Arnica. Arnica is one of the most popular homeopathic medicines and used by many athletes. The main active ingredient in natural Menthol.
Zim’s Arnica Max is available in 4-oz. gel and 3-oz. roll-on. Between the two, I prefer the roll-on. I’m not a fan of gel products when it comes to application. I prefer a cream. The gel is a bit runny and I accidentally squeezed too much out. The roll-on goes on very easily. You literally just roll it on like roll-on deodorant. It starts working pretty quickly and doesn’t leave an overpowering scent behind.
If you prefer a gel, though, I can say that it works wonderfully for pain relief! I had a really bad backache. We applied the Zim’s Arnica Max gel and within minutes I noticed a cooling and then warming effect from the menthol. I went to bed and was able to sleep peacefully without pain. The next morning my backache was gone.
Our son has shoulder pain and he has been using the Zim’s Arnica Max roll-on. He swears by it and says that it really works to ease the pain in his shoulder. These products aren’t a cure for what ails you but they definitely go a long way in temporarily easing the symptoms of pain and stiffness!
I also suffer from severe knee pain. When I was pregnant with our youngest daughter I popped my knee out of place and since then I’ve had pain in that knee. When the weather turns cool or it is going to rain I have horrible knee pain and swelling. There are times when I can’t bend my right knee at all and if I do manage to bend it I can barely straighten it out again.Even though the Zim’s Max-Freeze For Feet Continuous Spray is geared toward ankle, arch, heel, ball and joint pain, it also says it can be used for the temporary relief of minor aches and pains of muscles and joints. One night my knee was hurting particularly bad so I tried the Max-Freeze. It felt AMAZING! Like with the Arnica Max I had immediate cooling then warming and within minutes, the pain began to ease and I was able to sleep without discomfort.
As with any product or service, your results may vary from ours but I can honestly say that for my family, these Zim’s products have really helped with our aches and pains.
Zim’s Arnica Max will be sold in stores and through online retailers with the 4-oz. gel or 3-oz. Roll-on at a suggested retail price of $9.99.
