|Absorbine's story begins with a deep love of horses. In fact, very few people have understood and appreciated the importance of horses like Absorbine® founder Wilbur Fenelon Young and his wife, Mary Ida. They knew that without the horse, America would be a very different place.
So in 1892, Wilbur and Mary Ida decided to dedicate themselves to helping keep horses as healthy as possible. Working together, they developed a natural formula of herbs and essential oils that became Absorbine® Veterinary Liniment.
As the popularity of Absorbine® grew, some farmers began to realize that it relieved their own muscle pain as well. Wilbur and Mary Ida's son, Wilbur Jr., suggested that people might like their own version of Absorbine.® His parents thought that was a fine idea, and in 1904, introduced Absorbine Jr.®, naming it in honor of their forward-thinking son. Today, Absorbine Jr.® is found in more homes than any other liquid pain reliever.
Now, more than 120 years later, its line of products has grown considerably. But it hasn't forgotten our roots. Absorbine remains committed to offering a variety of high-quality products formulated to improve the well-being of both people and horses.
Absorbine® has come a long way. But Wilbur and Mary Ida's spirits will always be a part of our bloodline.
