World famous Tiger Balm® ointment was formulated by Aw Chu Kim who served in the imperial courts over 100 years ago. On his deathbed in 1908, he left this ancient formula with his two sons exacting from them their promise to make this ointment available to all seeking relief from pain. They kept their promise. Tiger Balm® has made its way into medicine cabinets all over the world, and now Tiger Balm® is sold in over 100 different countries. That\'s why Tiger Balm® is considered the world\'s #1 pain relieving ointment. Tiger Balm® has been effectively relieving aches and pains for about a hundred years.
