Our Comfrey cream is a medicinal product for the symptomatic treatment of joint pains, sprains, inflammation, and strains associated with restricted joint mobility.

The active ingredient is a liquid extract of comfrey root (Symphytum officinale). The plants are harvested when they are three years old, to allow for them to have built up a sufficient concentration of the ‘active’ ingredients in their roots. A special process then ensures that these ‘actives’ are preserved and incorporated into the ointment.

What makes our cream truly different from other comfrey-based creams however, is its use in clinical studies, where it has been shown to successfully target joint pain. In fact, participants using the topical cream experienced a 95% reduction in pain when compared to other treatments.

The cream has a pleasant aroma and it leaves no trace once massaged into the affected area (non-greasy). Its fast acting formula and easy application makes it the perfect choice for those ‘on the move’. The amount of cream required will depend on the size of the joint to be treated and how bad the symptoms are. However we recommend you always read the label, and the information leaflet which is included in the carton.

The Comfrey plant is a common plant found growing wild along verge sides in the UK and throughout Europe. It’s pretty purple/white flowers hang like bells. The root has been prized for centuries for its ‘active’ properties. So much so that it has been known by many names including ‘Knitbone’.

"Comfrey Cream"
By , 15 Mar 2019
I bought this product to help relieve the pain/stiffness in oesteo-arthritic knees. It doesn''t remove the pain, but it is soothing. For that reason I recommend trying it. I also believe that the quality is good.

"It relieve pain quickly. However, does it contain poisonous chemicals called pyrrolizidine alkaloid"
By , 12 Mar 2019
I have ordered 2 tubes of comfrey creams and applied the cream to osteoarthritic knees and hands. I found that the cream relieves pain quickly. However, after searching online comfrey, I found information stating that comfrey contains poisonous chemicals called pyrrolizidine alkaloids, which is a toxic chemicals that can be absorbed through the skin.
I wonder that is why in its leaflet, it is recommended to use for 8 days, or ''You should not use this cream for longer than 3 weeks''.
This information made me hesitate to use the cream although it is effective in relieving pain.
I hope to hear more advice about its application.
Recommend to a friend: Don't know
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

The comfrey is screened for pyrrolizidine alkaloids and is less than 10ppm, but there is no evidence at this stage to indicate that topical applications pose any risk to health. All of the data reviewed by the European commission was on ingesting PAs through dietary sources.

As you have read, the maximum amount of time that Comfrey Cream (code 211) should be used for is 21 days. It's use is limited to a maximum of 21 days as this is the length of time it was used for in clinical trials and there is no clinical data to support the safety or benefits of this product for periods longer than this.
