I received the Zim's Max-Freeze Gel and Roll-on to review. I was not paid in any form of cash for this posting. The opinions expressed are my own and were NOT influenced in any way.
Do you experience body aches and pains? I sure do, I have a bad back and it hurts quite often. I received an opportunity to review the Zim's Max-Freeze Gel and Roll-On. So, I thought I would give it a try, well my first impression was, wow this feels pretty good. It feels like an icy hot formula, perfect for relieving pain. Along with the products, I received information about them and they looked like they would be awesome products.
After going to the Zim's website, I checked out both products that I received and I was very disappointed with some of the ingredients! Let's take a look at the ingredients of both products.
About the Max-Freeze Roll-On and Max-Freeze GelThere are many awesome ingredients in the Max-Freeze Roll-On and Max-Freeze Gel, like *Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, *Arnica Montana Extract, Camphor, *Ilex Paraguariensis Leaf Extract, Tea Tree Oil and Vitamin E.
What I have a problem with is the Methylparaben, FD&C Blue #1 and Triethanolamine.
- Methylparaben: One of the physical dangers associated with methylparaben is its connection with tumors in the breast. Skin treated with creams that contain methylparaben was exposed to the sun's UVB rays, the skin cells died and there was considerable oxidative stress on the skin's tissue. Oxidative stress, according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, is responsible for a number of disease processes, including cancer. It has also been discovered that it can have estrogenic affects on the body, which means they can affect the reproductive glands.
- FD&C Blue #1: Research has discovered that it causes kidney tumors in mice.
- Triethanolamine: Triethanolamine is linked to hormonal disruption, but they are also linked to liver and kidney cancer and are corrosive to the delicate eye tissue.
As you can tell the Max-Freeze Gel has the same ingredients! Since, both of these products have Methylparaben, FD&C Blue #1 and Triethanolamine in them, I would not recommend these products! If these products did not have these three ingredients, I would recommend them.
