Q
What's the difference between Unker's rub and Unker's Spray?
A
Unker's Rub is the original ointment format while Unker's Spray is the concentrated, grease-less liquid form of the formula. Customers enjoy having a preference over which format to use depending upon the type and location of the pain/symptom. Our Rub and Spray contain the same pure essential oils based on the original Unker's formula.

A
Because our products use pure Essential Oils and no unstable chemicals, the shelf life is very long (we've had customers send us a 20 years old jar and you could still smell the menthol!) However, in accordance with contemporary FDA and retail practices, an expiration date may be provided on the package for the customer’s convenience.
