The ingredients in Steuart's Pain Formula are comfrey and arnica in a liposome base derived from safflowers, according to Steuart Laboratories. Comfrey aids healing, with arrnica helps with recovery from sprains and bruises. The formula also contains castor oil, jojoba oil, olive oil and glycerine.
Steuart's Pain Formula does not contain antibiotics, steroids or capsaicin, explains Steuart Laboratories. It is formulated to relieve muscular and joint pain, and the company claims that it is a soothing, virtually odorless, nongreasy balm that the skin absorbs easily. Users who apply the medication to their painful areas typically experience pain relief between five and 15 minutes later, and the effects continue for as long as eight hours. The product works without producing heat on the skin.
