Advil Targeted Relief glides on easily and dries upon application. Consumers prefer the cooling sensation of Advil Targeted Relief over Tylenol® Precise Pain Relieving Cream—they felt the sensation was quicker and longer with Advil Targeted Relief.1

The 4 powerful ingredients in NEW Advil Targeted Relief work in combination to deliver powerful relief for a multilayered sensory experience that the majority of over-the-counter (OTC) topicals cannot match:

  • MENTHOL provides a cooling sensation on the skin that quickly soothes pain
  • CAPSAICIN blocks pain by overriding the pain signals from the nerve
  • CAMPHOR desensitizes the area with both cooling and warming sensations
  • METHYL SALICYLATE stimulates the location of pain when applied and rushes relief to the site

Recommending Advil Targeted Relief or Voltaren?

NEW Advil Targeted Relief is appropriate for people with an active lifestyle who may have acute aches and pains due to overexertion.

Voltaren is the #1 doctor-recommended topical pain brand for arthritis pain, delivering the same prescription-strength pain relief in the first OTC topical NSAID gel.*

While both of these topical pain relief creams may be purchased OTC, they differ in their active ingredients and intended use.

  • Voltaren combats arthritis joint pain by delivering a clinically proven NSAID to the source of the pain to improve mobility.
  • The active ingredients in Advil Targeted Relief are counterirritants; they won’t treat the pain directly. Instead, they operate by helping focus the patient’s attention away from the pain, potentially offering a sensation of pain relief.

*Based on surveyed doctors. Voltaren is approved for use in treatment of arthritis pain.

NEW Advil Targeted Relief helps get patients back to the active lifestyle they enjoy.
