February 2011: “Gel, Spray Know How to ‘Stopain’”
Drug Store News announces that Troy Healthcare in January acquired the distribution of its Stopain brand, an external analgesic Troy has been manufacturing since 2002 that is already an up-and-coming pain-relief spray. The brand cracked the top 10 list of external analgesic rubs for the 12 weeks ended Dec. 26, 2010, moving into the No. 10 spot with $1.3 million in sales across food, drug and mass (excluding Walmart), according to SymphonyIRI Group data. SKU growth of 16.1% in that period also is outpacing category growth of 11.3%.
And already Troy has a line extension in the works: a new Stopain pain-relieving gel that contains 38% more of the active ingredient menthol than any other product in the cooling gel category, the company stated.
Suggested retail price for the pain-relieving gel will be $5.99 for a 2.5-oz. tube. This is very much a value-priced item that is primed to succeed in today’s economy, Troy Healthcare spokesman Bob Miller said.
