Zax’s Original Creams for Natural Relief

To treat common ailments, too often we reach for medicated synthetic solutions. For my 3 kids, if I can easily choose a natural product to do the job, I’ll do it. Zax’s Original Creams, is a line of therapeutic creams that use a unique blend of natural ingredients to effectively treat common ailments. Developed by a registered dietician and pharmacist {a husband and wife team}, this product is also made in Canada!

We’re filling voids in the Canadian marketplace with unique, effective, natural and Canadian-made therapeutic products,” says Alyssa Rolnick. “Our Zax’s Original Creams are developed with the combined knowledge of natural remedies and pharmacist-recommended treatments allowing us to create effective and safe treatments for common but frustrating conditions that affect the whole family.”

Zax’s Original Creams’ product line includes:

  • Zax’s Original Bruise Cream ($18.99) –  Speeds healing, reduces pain and helps lessen discoloration using a unique blend of natural ingredients, including arnica, witch hazel and menthol. Should be used as soon as the injury occurs, compliment with rest, ice and elevation.
  • Zax’s Kids Bruise Cream ($18.99) – A menthol-free version of the Zax’s Original Bruise Cream designed specifically for children’s bumps and bruises (ages two to eleven). The kid’s version uses witch hazel and arnica and is ideal for bruises from hockey, figure skating, soccer or booster and flu shots. Great for those everyday bumps for kids, but also after booster and flu shots.
  • Zax’s Original Darkspot Cream ($29.99) For people looking to restore that youthful, healthy look to their skin, Zax’s Original Darkspot Cream significantly fades age spots, removes dead skin cells, moisturizes aging skin and repairs skin damage from sun exposure. This cream features a hydroquinione-free spot lightening formula made with citrus peel extract, licorice, niacinamide, aloe and vitamin E. Results are most often noticed within the first four weeks.
  • Zax’s Original Heelspur Cream ($18.99) – For runners, athletes or anyone with sore feet after a long day, Zax’s Original Heelspur Cream is made from four natural and effective ingredients including devil’s claw, ginger, arnica and menthol. The cream was developed to help those with common foot problems including plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. Its a natural way to help deal with discomfort and can be used with typical treatments for foot pain: orthotics, heel cushions, supportive footwear, rest, icing the area and weight loss.

Just before Christmas the girls were playing and my oldest fell, and I knew the area on her cheek would bruise. I recalled getting the Zax’s Kids Bruise Cream for review, so I used it on her cheek. I noticed the nice way it blended into her skin, leaving no greasy feeling nor scent that would make her nose crinkle.

On Christmas Eve a friend {who is also a doctor of Chinese Medicine} was over and I showed him the collection of Zax’s creams. Since he uses natural herbs and ingredients in his own treatment, I was eager to get his opinion on the line of products. After reading the ingredients, he confirmed that these products were ones he would most definitely urge people to use. For example, the Kids Bruise Cream contains natural ingredients that increase blood flow to the area, thus promoting healing.

Zax’s Original Creams are widely available across Canada at natural health stores and pharmacies including Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, etc.
