What is Rumagon?
Double Prawn Brand Rumagon® liniment (双虾标风湿油) is made to relieve joint aches, stiffness, and pain associated with arthritis, backache, strain, cramp, and sprain. Although the uses for Rumagon are very similar to HuoLuo Oil, there are still slight differences between them.
The main difference lies in the ingredients used, which results in the two oils having different scents. Rumagon Oil came first and although it is a product well-received by certain groups in Singapore, there are some who find the smell too strong for their liking. Thus, HuoLuo Oil was created as an alternative that’s easier on the nose. The effects of the oils may differ from person to person, so we do encourage you to try the different products to see what suits your needs best.
