When Zim’s came to me and asked me to check out their product, I was reluctant. What’s really different between Zim’s Max-Freeze, Mineral Ice or BioFreeze?
I was pleasantly surprised by Zim’s Max-Freeze. It has the same menthol scent as the other brands but it seems to be more organic. It has organic ilex, aloe and arnica. It also has Vitamin E and Tea Tree Oil. It’s greaseless and has a vanishing scent, which means that once you apply the smell goes away quickly.
It definitely feels similar to Mineral Ice and BioFreeze. The menthol seems to seep into your skin making your muscles feel less tense.
I applied it to the back of my neck. I have issues with the back of my neck. When I get stressed or have been overdoing it, my neck blows up and I really felt a difference. I surprised at how well it worked.
After a recent race, I also applied it to the backs of my legs. They were throbbing and you know what? It did help.
The active ingredient in Zim’s is 3.7% natural menthol. You can purchase at any local retail store.
My only issue, I used it a couple of times, put it down somewhere and now, I can’t find it anywhere… I guess I have to visit my local CVS, Walgreen’s or Rite Aid and see if I can pick up some more of it!
