Approximately 30 million Americans experience frequent foot pain 1) and many simultaneously suffer from cold feet and dry skin. Painful, cold, dry feet may be associated with various conditions, including diabetes, fibromyalgia, shingles, arthritis, joint pain, muscle strain, or trauma. Kerasal® NeuroCream is a triple action formula that relieves stabbing, burning, tingling foot pain, warms cold feet, and soothes and moisturizes dry skin. Kerasal® NeuroCream is easily applied with a “no mess” foam applicator.
The active ingredients of Kerasal® NeuroCream, capsaicin and camphor, have a well-established use as topical pain relievers, are naturally occurring and derived from plants. Moberg Pharma has utilized its Fusome® skin delivery system, currently used in Moberg’s JointFlex® Pain Relieving Cream, to formulate Kerasal® NeuroCream, enabling a rapid delivery of effective pain relievers to the pain source.
“Kerasal® NeuroCream is an innovative addition to our product portfolio. It leverages one of our existing drug delivery technologies along with proven active ingredients, to provide a solution that meets an unmet consumer need. Kerasal® NeuroCream further strengthens the Kerasal® brand, our leadership in the topical OTC foot care space in the U.S. and our value to retail partners”, said Peter Wolpert, CEO of Moberg Pharma AB.
