The product has been developed with a refreshing aroma producing outstanding results according to the company research team.

Eco Balm Red is a strong, warmer and comforting ointment designed to relieve back pains, muscular aches, sprains, cramps, insect bites and a host of other common ailments while Eco Balm White is a mild balm designed to give quick relief for these same ailments. Eco Balm Oil comes in liquid form and provides easy application over larger areas of the body where pain could be widespread. Eco Balm has also introduced a Mosquito Repellent Spray, which has been manufactured using ingredients such as natural eucalyptus oil, citronella and lemongrass, and has been proven to be effective against persistent mosquitoes in local households.
