Ancient discovery, modern clinical results
In Biblical times, stories abounded of a mysterious oil used by ancient sages. It was said to be a precious and wonderfully soothing elixir. Traditionally, this comforting oil was made by leaving an essential oil in an open vat for 20 years, allowing the sun's rays to infuse the oil with oxygen.
Today, modern science has rediscovered the power of hyper-oxygenated oil, and the oxygenation process has been shortened to just three days. Athletes in Europe have been using this oil for years, but it took leading pain expert Dr. Joseph Pergolizzi to bring it home to the U.S. and combine it with soothing menthol to create the formula for Instaflex Extra Strength Pain Relief Spray.

Science and Quality
Menthol & methyl salicylate for safe, effective pain relief
Instaflex® Extra Strength Pain Relief Spray contains menthol—an effective OTC pain reliever that provides pain relief by acting as a counterirritant. This means that the sensation menthol creates replaces the pain sensation. When used topically, menthol produces feelings of coolness followed by warmth. However, it does not actually warm the skin.
Methyl salicylate, a compound naturally present in wintergreen oil, is also considered a pain-relieving counterirritant, but is thought to affect different receptors than menthol. Both ingredients were included in Instaflex Extra Strength Pain Relief Spray because they are recognized as safe and effective for pain relief, backaches, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains.
Essential oils and ancient practices: How oil, oxygen, and sunshine soothe skin
In the 1950s and '60s, Professor Pierre Baranger—a member of the Pasteur Institute's scientific team—traveled throughout India studying the powers of oils. These oils were known throughout the East for their exceptional restorative virtues.
Upon further study into the soothing qualities of oils, 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 properly preparing the oils. To truly harness its natural powers, the oil first had to be exposed to sun and open air for 20 years. Using all he had learned from the medicine men of India, Baranger was able to pioneer a process that replicates 20 years of oxygenation in just three days. This allowed him to introduce these powerful soothing oils to the West.
Dr. Pergolizzi was first introduced to the benefits of oxygenated oil while traveling through Germany. This inspired Dr. Pergolizzi to learn more about oxygenated oil, the history of its use, and how he could best incorporate it into his own pain relief treatments.
The result? An incredible, versatile pain relief spray that uses the unique features of oxygenated oil to unlock a world of potential for soothing, feel-good relief.
