GOLDEN CRÈME™ was developed in the early 90's by a Columbia University Ph.D. and his post-graduate chemist son for the treatment of their wife's & mother's osteo- and rheumatoid arthritis. Spending over 3.5 years perfecting the formula, the father/son team discovered that by significantly increasing the blood flow to the painful area (vasodilation), their wife & mother's pain and swelling were dramatically reduced. Her suffering and constant pain were the catalysts for the Relief, Inc.’s research and subsequent pain relieving creation.
Like many individuals plagued with arthritis, the chemists' wife and mother (Mrs. Young) also had extreme sensitivity to existing analgesic rubs and crèmes that irritated and burned her skin, making lasting pain relief difficult to attain. Relief, Inc.'s goal was to produce an analgesic for use with applied heat (hot towels, wax, or heating pad) that would not react on sensitive skin with the extreme, sometimes blistering effect associated with similar dressings. Relief's final result--GOLDEN CRÈME--was an effective analgesic that not only produces no redness or skin irritation with applied heat but that, for most aches and pains, requires no applied heat at all.
GOLDEN CRÈME is a topical analgesic that addresses pain associated with the lower back, with sore muscles and joins, and with arthritis and fibromyalgia. The Active Ingredient is histamine dihydrochloride—the hydrochloride salt of histamine. This FDA approved compound is a vasodilator. The carrier cream, designed to penetrate through all the dermis and lipid layers of the skin, reaches the muscles and joints quickly and effectively to provide soothing relief.
Inactive Ingredients: Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Diazolidinyl Urea, Disodium EDTA, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Isocetyl Stearate, Methylparaben, Mineral Oil, Probylene Glycol, Propylparaben, Stearic Acid, Tocopherol, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), de-ionized Water
While Histamine dihydrochloride is not a pain reliever, this compound relaxes the body’s blood vessels, thereby stimulating blood flow to the applied area. Because all humans naturally produce hydrocortisone, which is the most effective anti-inflammatory known and is carried in the blood stream, GOLDEN CRÈME stimulates the body’s own capacity to attack inflammation. When inflammation is reduced, pain is also reduced. Although there is no such thing as a formal FDA approval for over-the-counter topical analgesics (only formal instruction for correction or denial of suspect products), the agency requires strict regulations as to the manufacture, labeling, and advertising of GOLDEN CRÈME and all class 1 drugs. Relief Inc. is proud that our company’s products have been thoroughly evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and that the agency has required no corrective actions and finds our product in full compliance.
