Why we love BodyIce Heat Cold Packs
Not only do these products outperform similar products in terms of functionality and durability, the brand was founded in 2006 by Olympic Champion Lydia Lassila! This amazing woman launched the business with a mission to help people of all ages recover from their injuries and fight pain and inflammation naturally using simple ice and compression.
Away from the sporting arena, Lydia is a mother of two boys. It was her journey into motherhood that inspired BodyICE Woman – a range of stylishly designed remedial ice and heat packs just for women offering calming relief to the perineum after childbirth and breasts throughout the breastfeeding journey.
