Original Pain Relieving Liquid Now Easier to Use in Unbreakable Bottle
June 01, 2006

W. F. Young, Inc., marketers of the Absorbine Jr.® line of pain relief products, has moved its "original_liquid"flagship Absorbine Jr. Original Pain Relieving Liquid from glass bottles to plastic bottles. Original Absorbine Jr., invented in 1903 to help relieve the muscle aches and pains of hardworking Americans, is a staple in the homes of millions of consumers.

The company spent many years in Research & Development to find and design the perfect bottle with the same barrier properties as glass. Due to the proprietary blend of ingredients in Absorbine Jr., the company was forced to wait for plastics technology to be discovered to allow the move from an inert material like glass to an equally inert plastic construction. After trials with different combinations of materials and stability testing over many years, a unique six-layer plastic bottle has been developed. The distinctive construction has yielded a plastic bottle that exactly mimics the barrier compounds of glass; five years of stability data show that they are identical in barrier capabilities.

Consumers have requested plastic bottles for years and the company is now pleased to respond to that request.

Founded in 1892 by Wilbur Fenelon Young and his wife, Mary Ida, W. F. Young, Inc. has provided over a century of quality health care products. From its headquarters in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, the company is committed to extending this heritage into the new century. Visit www.absorbine.com for more information.
