Omega Pain Killer

Omega Pain Killer Liniment

Omega Pain Killer Liniment

Omega Pain Killer is probably one of the first products that would come into your mind when you hear the word “topical” (applied unto skin) pain reliever. With more than 50 years of providing instant relief for minor aches, Omega had already been a part of the lives of millions of Filipinos.

The Magic Potion: Omega Pain Killer

Omega Liniment is Methyl Salicylate plus Camphor plus Menthol. Methyl Salicylate or wintergreen oil is the component that provides pain relief by means of counter-irritation. Camphor, another active ingredient, has many uses. Aside from providing pain relief, it could also be used as insect repellent and decongestant. Menthol also has local anesthetic (mild) and counterirritant qualities, but is known mostly for its cooling property. Omega Pain Killer is a product of International Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Availability and Affordability of Omega Pain Killer Liniment

Omega Pain Killer is available in drug stores and supermarkets nationwide. This light yellow green, scented liniment is available in several bottle sizes of 30, 60 and 120 ml. It is also available in regular (yellow label) and Pro (blue label). The price of one bottle ranges from 20 pesos (for 30 ml) to around 100 pesos (for 120 ml).

Omega Pain Killer Liniment is also available online

Uses and Administration

This product is indicated for the following: back pains, muscle and joint pains, muscle cramps, rheumatism, lumbago, nerve pain, arthritis, stiff neck, headache, flatulence, insect bites, itchiness, minor sprains and strains. Omega Pain Killer is for external use only. Shaking well before application is required. Directions for use include applying a liberal amount to the affected area and gently massaging that area until skin penetration is complete. Application can be repeated 3 – 4 times as necessary. Storage should be at temperatures not exceeding 30 degrees Celsius.

Special Precautions for Omega Pain Killer Applications

For use in children below 3 years of age, consultation with a physician is necessary. Omega Pain Killer is a topical analgesic (pain reliever) and should not be ingested. If accidentally swallowed, vomiting should be induced and calling a physician immediately is important. Also, getting product into the eyes or on mucous membranes (example, inside of the nose) should be avoided. If skin redness or irritation develops, use should be discontinued. Omega Liniment should not be applied to wounds or damaged skin. Most importantly, it should be kept out of reach of children.

The Verdict for Omega Pain Killer Liniment

Omega Pain Killer Liniment is a “value for your money” must have for instant pain relief. I particularly like that it smells good and feels good on my skin. It is not as greasy as the other liniments in the market and penetration is fast, thus quick relief. My family and I have been using this product since the early 90’s and though we are sometimes alternating it with other topical pain reliefs, Omega will always be our first choice. In fact, I have the 30 ml bottle sitting on my desk right now. Omega Pain Killer is also ideal for massaging because the cold to warm sensation on tired muscles is very relaxing. I would recommend this product to those who want pain relief in a flash but does not want to take oral analgesics. Omega Pain Killer is safe for everyday use.

Antiseptic Alcohol : The Brands You should Prefer

Antiseptic alcohol

Antiseptic alcohol

With the diseases that have emerged during the last two decades, people are getting more self-conscious about health. There are many antiseptic alcohol brands that you see in supermarkets and drug stores these days. Alcohol works as antiseptic by means of protein coagulation to inhibit the growth and reproduction of microorganisms. But which of the brand names that are currently in the market should you choose? I will site a few products that I have actually tried and tested.


Antiseptic Alcohol Brands


Family Rubbing Alcohol

antiseptic alcohol

antiseptic alcohol

This is the alcohol brand that my mother used to purchase when I was younger (1990’s). Do you still remember its TV advertisement? Its tag line was “Di lang pang-pamilya, pang-sports pa!” (Not only for the family, for sports too!) True. Our whole family used this antiseptic alcohol brand for several years and we would often pack it in our bags during our sports activities. But back then it did not come with moisturizer, making our skin somewhat dry whenever we used it continuously.

Johnson’s Band Aid Brand Isopropyl Alcohol

Alcohol Antiseptic

Alcohol Antiseptic

I particularly like the scent of this alcohol antiseptic. It comes in several bottle sizes of 70% isopropyl alcohol. The solution somehow has a drying effect with continued use. But the scent (not too strong) and its affordability more than make up it.

Green Cross Alcohol

alcohol antiseptic

alcohol antiseptic

The Green Cross brand has probably the widest range of antiseptic alcohol products to choose from. They have isopropyl (40% and 70%) and ethyl (70%) alcohol that comes in different bottle sizes. They also have alcohol with moisturizer. Now, Green Cross is also available in hand sanitizing gel which I like because it’s non-messy – no pouring, just squeezing unto your palm and voila! Goodbye germs!


Casino Ethyl Alcohol

Antiseptic alcohol

Casino is 70% ethyl alcohol available in two variants, Regular and Femme. It is used as an alcohol antiseptic and has a great scent. This is ideal for massaging. The Femme variant has a feminine scent and cooling effect when applied on skin. What is great about Casino Ethyl Alcohol is its moisturizing property. It is not that expensive either. The Femme variant is my favourite, though it does not come in smaller sizes.

Biogenic Alcohol

Antiseptic Biogenic alcohol

Antiseptic Biogenic alcohol

Biogenic is one of the cheapest alcohol antiseptic brands in the market today. It is worth purchasing as alternative to expensive alcohol brands. What most people love about this hand sanitizer is its scent. It does not smell like a hospital would. The scent is more like a cologne. Plus, it is also available in bottle spray so no pouring needed. I remember seeing the large bottle sprays in hospitals. Biogenic is available in isopropyl and ethyl alcohol (70%).


These brands have been proven effective. It is up to you to choose which one to use according to your needs. But as with all other alcohol brands, you must remember that antiseptic alcohol is for external use only. These are the common warnings for Antiseptic alcohol: Do not ingest. If product gets into eyes, rinse with water and seek consult if irritation persists. Alcohol is highly flammable so keep it away from any source of fire. Most importantly, keep it away from children.


What is Efficascent Oil?

What is Efficascent Oil?

Efficascent Oil

If you are not from the Philippines, you would not what is efficascent oil. Well, this is a household favorite here in the Philippines. It is an ointment/liniment that dads and grand dads love to spread on their aching bodies after a long day of work.


What is Efficascent oil?

Efficascent oil is a liniment that relieves pain. It has a menthol feel with a stronger aroma. It has been around for 50 years – and has survived the test of time. It is packaged in “old school” bottle that have a narrow opening. This is done so to protect from over spilling. A tiny bit of this liniment may be too much for non-permanent users. It offers a hot sensation that prevails for about an hour.


Efficascent oil is Methyl Salicylate Camphor + Menthol. Everybody loves menthol. It’s all over the place. It offers the same sensation like a menthol candy on your tongue. Imagine a menthol candy’s power 50 times stronger and gives the sensation on your skin. Soothing right?


Efficascent oil claims these on their website:

  1. Instant Relief
  2. Home Remedy
  3. Touch Therapy
  4. Relaxation

We believe in that. They wouldn’t have lasted 50 years if it wasn’t working. This is how the manufacturer defines their product’s uses:

“A liniment preparation specially formulated for fast relief of back and muscular pains from overwork, cramps, rheumatism, lumbago, arthritis, stiff neck, headache, gas pain, insect bites, minor burns and bruises, sprains and skin irritations” – from:


What is Efficascent oil? – It is a liniment that pretty much handles it all for first aid.


One more interesting thing about Efficascent oil: It’s Green!


Efficascent oil’s History

Efficascent oil was heavily favored in the era of witch doctors and urban legends about what the real cure is. In this decade where science and common belief was merging, the answer to cure that can be felt was born: Efficascent oil!

When International Pharmaceutical was founded in 1959, they only one product: Efficascent oil. This is the bearer of their brand, the sole product at that time. Now they have more researched products and like alcohol, bath soaps etc. But, they wouldn’t have thought that their first product would still be the leader of the pack. They are the same company that produced Omega pain killer.

Efficascent oil still maintains its lead as the trusted brand. A simple bottling package was not changed up until now. This is a classic product that provided relief.

Beware: there are products today that offer the same packaging with a slightly different name, check out the label and make sure you buy the original.


What Efficascent oil is made of?


These are the active ingredients for Efficascent oil: Camphor 4%, Menthol 1.45%, Methyl Salicylate 18.35%. Camphor is considered as a topical analgesic while methyl salicylate is a counter irritant. Both chemicals provide for the soothing effect of the liniment.
