What sets O2 Derm™ Relief apart from other pain relief creams?

To start, ours is not a pain relief cream.

O2 Derm™ Relief is an odor-free, translucent gel which rubs into your skin cleanly, leaving no greasy feel behind. The dissolved oxygen and pain relieving nitrous oxide absorb into the skin and help in relieving joint and muscle pain.

Many name brand topical pain relief products rely on a “counter-irritation” effect.  They use chemicals like menthol to provide a surface irritation that helps trick your body into lessening deeper discomfort and inflammation.

O2 Derm™ Relief works differently.  It brings a reservoir of oxygen into close proximity with your skin and delivers the naturally occurring analgesic nitrous oxide to your cells as well.

What is O2 Derm™ Relief made of?

All of our Derm Creatio2ns products are simply different formulations of the following ingredients:  distilled water, the naturally occurring clay LAPONITE® XLG, silicone, Epsom salts (a source of magnesium), oxygen nitrous oxide, and a food-grade thickening agent used in marshmallows and toothpaste (TSPP).

LAPONITE® is a registered trademark of BYK Additives Ltd.

Is it safe?

Yes.  O2 Derm™ Relief contains no harmful chemicals and is non-allergenic.

I’ve never heard of O2 Derm™ Relief before. Is it new?

The O2 Derm family of products, including O2 Derm™ Relief have been under development for years and in use by a small but enthusiastic customer base who have helped us better understand the possible applications.  Recently, we’ve begun to scale production to reach a wider market and bring the benefits of this oxygen rich, pain relief gel to you.
