Share Article

Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream from Topical BioMedics, Inc. will be featured as part of the 14th Annual Woodstock Film Festival, October 2-6, 2013 in Woodstock, NY. Topricin is used by actors, directors, editors, and production teams to relieve the aches and pains from long days on movie sets.

Fiercely Natural, Safe, Effective, and Free of Side Effects

This year’s stellar event will feature more than 150 films, panels, concerts, and events.

Movies Stars, Carpet Events, and Film Festivals have communally cast Topricin as their starring pain relief cream on and off the set.

Why such celebrity? Long hours standing on set can result in lower back, neck and shoulder pain…Unfortunate consequences of death-defying stunts include sports/impact and falling injuries, sprains, strains, and minor burns…Tropical location sets bring about bug bites, sun burns, and bruises… Repetitive motion injuries affect hard-working cameramen, grips, and editors…And Red Carpet events that require the highest-of-heels are always hard on feet.

Film Darling Drew Barrymore found relief with Topricin while filming her blockbuster film Charlie’s Angels. Drew did several of her own stunts in the movie and during one "very gritty street fight" she snapped her tailbone after being slammed into a chair. According to the actress, "That's a bad injury. You can't go to the bathroom, you can't sit down, you can't laugh. Everything hurts." Luckily, Ms. Barrymore’s make-up artist was in-the-know about Topricin and made a direct call to the Topical BioMedics’ Inc. team in Rhinebeck, NY requesting that a box of Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream be overnighted to the set.

As was with Ms. Barrymore, the long, hectic schedules of those in “the industry” rarely allow for doctor visits off the lots. Luckily, there are systems in place to help those hurting in Hollywood and beyond. One such example is Health Wheels, an extension of the Motion Picture and Television Fund, delivering healthcare services directly to sets. Health Wheels is a 33-foot fully functional and professional mobile health center with two comfortably sized, well-equipped private examination rooms and is staffed with a medical doctor, a licensed vocational nurse and a driver/patient registrar. The MPTF was founded by film pioneers Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks and D.W. Griffith in 1921 with donations they collected from putting out tin cans. Add Topricin to the mix of healing modalities. Available in 0.75oz, 2oz tubes, and 4oz jars, Topricin is portable and can be thrown into purses, trailers, back pockets, and gym bags.

This year, Topricin will be featured as part of the 14th Annual Woodstock Film Festival, October 2-6, 2013 in Woodstock, NY. Each year film and music lovers from around the world gather at the Woodstock Film Festival for an innovative variety of films, first-class concerts, workshops, celebrity-led panels, an awards ceremony, and fantastic parties. Esteemed members of the film world who have participated in the past include Kevin Bacon, Bruce Beresford, Benjamin Bratt, Matt Dillon, Edie Falco, Peter Gabriel, Ethan Hawke, Todd Haynes, Melissa Leo, Daniel Day-Lewis, Laura Linney, Liev Schreiber, Annabella Sciorra, John Sloss, Kevin Smith, Fisher Stevens, David Strathairn, Lili Taylor, and Uma Thurman.

This year’s stellar event will feature more than 150 films, panels, concerts, and events. Luminaries on the “credits” include Peter Bogdanovich, Andy Garcia, Paul Rudd, Sonny Rollins, Stephen Dorff, and Slava Rubin…as well as the Topricin, choice of the stars.
