Ingredients Matter

We made CUROXEN because we were looking for a safe alternative to petrochemical – and drug-based wound care that actually works. Made with just three base ingredients you’ll recognize from nature, CUROXEN is just that.

Olive oil – 95% of CUROXEN’s formula is comprised of ultra-pure, certified organic olive oil. The olive oil undergoes an oxygenation process (yep, it’s infused with good old O2, necessary for cell repair) that creates a highly antimicrobial substrate that heals quickly.

Calendula1 – High in plant-based antioxidants called flavonoids, calendula extract is derived from the flower petals of the pot marigold (Calendula Officinalis) and has been used for medicinal purposes throughout history. A recent scientific study cites calendula’s effectiveness in healing skin wounds quickly.2

Lavender essential oil – We also added some lavender essential oil for a fresh scent.

Safe for All

Many of the leading wound care ointments on the market today contain petrolatum-derived ingredients and synthetically created antibiotics. These antibiotics can create an allergic reaction in approximately 10% of the population. Plus, the overuse of these drugs has been shown to lead to antibiotic resistance, a serious health problem recognized by major health agencies around the world.

CUROXEN’s unique formulation is made in Italy at a premier medical homeopathic healthcare company that complies with strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) guidelines by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

CUROXEN Contains No Known Allergens

Both branded and generic antibiotic creams and ointments rely on three main antibiotics, two of which — neomycin and bacitracin — earned the dubious title of Allergen of the Year by the American Contact Dermatitis Association (ACDA) in 2010 and 2003, respectively.

Neomycin3 creates an allergic reaction in approximately 10% of consumers, while 9.2% reacted negatively to bacitracin, with reactions ranging from skin rash to anaphylaxis.

No Antibiotics Necessary

In recent years, ordinary microbes have become superbugs, thanks to the rampant and often unnecessary use of antibiotic and antimicrobial products. Because this kind of pharmaceutical use has become so common, the microbes and other pathogens have adapted to and overcome the medicines we use to treat them, often leaving the most vulnerable people at risk, the sick and the young.

Antibiotic and antimicrobial resistance is considered a global health crisis by the United Nations (UN), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and World Health Organization (WHO), and CUROXEN’s parent company, OrganiCare, stands by our mission to stem the tide of antibiotic resistance. It’s simply a smart choice.

Better Because of What It Doesn’t Have

CUROXEN is comprised of only three base ingredients directly derived from nature. But it’s also notable for what it doesn’t contain:

  • Synthetic drugs, including antibiotics
  • Petrolatum-derived products
  • Artificial chemicals
  • Silver

For those who are careful about what we put into and onto our — and our children’s — bodies, CUROXEN’s ultrapure, safe formulation is a relief. Even better: It works. Studies show CUROXEN is over 5X more effective at killing germs* than the leading antibiotic ointments, all without drugs and chemicals.
