How Oil, Oxygen & Sunshine make for a powerful combination


In the 1950s and 60s, Professor Pierre Baranger – a member of the Pasteur Institute’s scientific team – traveled throughout India studying the healing powers of chaulmoogra oils. These oils were known throughout the East for their exceptional restorative virtues, including relief from joint, muscle, tendon, and even bone aches.

Upon further study into the healing qualities of chaulmoogra, Baranger became perplexed as to why modern doctors in the mainland cities weren’t using the oils. Local healers informed him that it was because modern doctors didn’t know the secret to preparing them. To truly harness their natural healing powers, the oils first had to be exposed to sun and open air for 20 years.

Using what he’d learned from the medicine men of India, Baranger pioneered a process that replicates 20 years of oxygenation in just three days. This allowed him to introduce these powerful soothing oils to Europe.

Years later, while traveling through Germany, world-renowned pain specialist Dr. Joseph Pergolizzi was introduced to oxygenated oil and its effectiveness when he discovered that Olympic athletes were rubbing it into their muscles for its soothing effect. This discovery inspired Dr. Pergolizzi to learn more about oxygenated oil and how he could best incorporate it into pain-relief treatments for his own patients.

His quest for a solution led him to create OxyRub, a natural pain-relieving product containing oxygenated oil and a minimal effective dose of menthol (1.25%).

Dr. Pergolizzi would later develop a professional strength version of the product – OxyRub PRO – with 2.5% menthol and methyl salicylate. It is available exclusively through professionals.

OxyRub vs. a leading menthol-only cream

In a double-blind, randomized, controlled head-to-head study, original OxyRub was put to the test against a leading menthol-only cream. After eight days, users of OxyRub showed a reduction in pain of 59.9%, compared to just 32.3% in users of the other mentholated cream. Users also reported a significant improvement in mobility and flexibility compared to the menthol-only group.

Many users reported relief in just minutes – with increased pain-relieving power over the next 30 minutes – and lasting for hours at a time.
