Ryan's father, a knowledgeable expert in formulating drugs for transdermal delivery, spent decades perfecting topical pain relievers. The breakthrough came when he started collaborating with local herbalists and experimenting with different natural ingredients.

Throughout their journey, they encountered various challenges, including regulatory requirements and the need for preservatives to extend shelf life. But they didn't let these obstacles hinder their progress. In fact, they're now working on a new foot and leg pain spray, refining the formulation even further.
