Topricin Foot Therapy to hit shelves at Walgreens
November 22nd, 2013
RHINEBECK, N.Y. – Topical BioMedics Inc. has landed retail distribution for its Topricin Foot Therapy Cream at Walgreens, the nation's largest drug chain.
The company said Friday that Walgreens will carry Topricin Foot Therapy Cream in the diabetes care section of its nearly 9,000 drug stores.
The homeopathic product is patented for topical treatment of pain related to neuropathy and is safe for diabetics, according to Topical BioMedics.
"We are delighted that Topricin Foot Therapy Cream has been chosen by Walgreens for inclusion in its diabetic section," stated Lou Paradise, Topical BioMedics' president and chief of research. "It is estimated that nearly 60% of all diabetic patients experience neuropathy in their feet, which can be painfully debilitating and greatly impacts their quality of life. Because our formula is patented for the treatment of pain associated with neuropathy, it offers a safe, effective option for people suffering from both diabetic and chemo-induced neuropathy. Having it on the shelves in Walgreens will certainly make our product more available to those in need."
Topricin Foot Therapy Cream is specially formulated to address pains associated with foot and ankle pain and injuries, including gout, heel spurs and bunions; sports injuries such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis and shin splints; and neuropathic nerve pain.
Topical BioMedics' other natural pain relief products include the original Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream and Topricin for Children.
