MADISON, Tenn., May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- No matter how diligently one applies sunscreen, summer almost inevitably means sunburns for people who like spending lots of time outdoors. AminoActiv® (http://aminoactiv.com), the #1 alternative to ibuprofen & NSAIDs®, offers relief for painful sunburns with its non-toxic, anti-inflammatory topical cream. Manufactured by Vireo Systems, AminoActiv topical cream and capsules are sold through retailers and at the website's online store.
Users of AminoActiv topical cream need not worry about staining their clothes or giving off an overpowering smell. The non-menthol, non-staining, water-soluble cream is available in a 2.75-oz tube and in convenient travel packs. For sunburn applications, users apply a light layer of AminoActiv topical cream on the affected areas and let it soak in on its own.
Vireo Systems wants to caution users that AminoActiv topical cream is not a substitute for sunscreen; anyone exposed to the sun's rays should always wear sunscreen with an SPF 30 or better rating.
While sunburn relief is always a blessing, AminoActiv topical cream is capable of much more. AminoActiv users also report relief from:
- Muscle soreness
- Poison ivy
- Insect bites
- Plantar Fasciitis
The topical cream, like the capsules, promotes natural healing rather than masking pain as most other over-the-counter pain relievers do. AminoActiv has demonstrated in university studies that it reduces inflammation as well as ibuprofen, but without the harmful side effects associated with ibuprofen and other NSAIDs (non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs).
AminoActiv contains the anti-inflammatory ingredient, Alpha-GEE®, a unique compound made of naturally occurring amino acids found in natural sources and are endogenous to the body.
As part of boosting awareness of this safe, effective, over-the-counter alternative to ibuprofen and NSAIDs, Vireo Systems will be distributing travel packs at selected sports facilities and outdoor retail shops this summer as a way for consumers to sample the product. Retailers interested in offering AminoActiv are encouraged to contact the company.
