About Us

Located in the scenic Hudson Valley about 100 miles north of New York City, Topical BioMedics was founded in Rhinebeck NY, in 1994. The journey to create the world’s safest, most effective, natural pain relief began when combat veteran Lou Paradise sought options while facing surgery for severe Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Thus, Topricin was born out a need by the co-founder to find a natural method to heal his wartime injuries. 25 years later, Topricin products can be found in 40,000 doors across the U.S. Our products can also be found right here on topricin.com. You can also find Topricin products online at amazon.com, walmart.com, walgreens.com, target.com, and jet.com.
