The Beginning

Zax Healthcare Inc. was started in 2006. After getting bruised badly playing hockey and not satisfied with the efficacy of plain arnica cream or gels my husband Mark, (a pharmacist) and I began the search for a better treatment for bruises. Zax Healthcare was born with the focus on developing the first Canadian over the counter treatment specific for bruises.

Our Creams

After 2 years of R&D, working with a leading team of chemists and botanists, Zax’s Original Bruise Cream was born in 2008 as a unique combination of Arnica, Witch Hazel and Menthol. We initially launched our Bruise Cream into Natural Health Stores across Canada and soon after received our NPN approvals from Health Canada.

It was our satisfied customers that came to us with ideas for our next launches: Zax’s Original Darkspot Cream (for age spots / sun spots) and Zax’s Original Heelspur Cream (for plantar fasciitis and heel pain). With the launch of these products in 2009, we finally got the attention of some of larger Pharmacy Chains in Canada, namely Rexall and Shoppers Drug Mart who, as of 2010, carry all of our products in most of their stores. We took a break from product development for 2 years to focus on the implementations of our products with our new chain pharmacy retailers.

In 2012, we resumed our focus on new product development for our Skin Care and First Aid Creams and once again customers told us that what was missing from the market was reasonably priced natural creams for baggy/puffy eyes and rosacea.

And so working with our trusted experts and after trying many formula’s we landed on two great recipes and launched Zax’s Dark-Circle Eye Cream and Zax’s Facial Redness Cream early in 2013.
