Hallo,
all my life I remember: when my father had a skinn issue( dry skin, red spots , itching), he used a special natural cream, which solved the issue relative sure, but a bit slow, because it is natural.
I didn t like it, because it doesn’t smell too good. I had to grow older untill I re- found it for me. And I use it quite often.

now I thought about to mix an ointment with that substance in a well smelling way and than let some people test it and tell me, what they think about it.

If I get a positive feedback, I would sell it under an own brand name.

Although I m not the first to do that in general, I hope my product could be superb.
at least I could help a few people getting their sore a$$ problem fixed, I think.

Please tell me your thoughts?

is ther a future for it?
How could I proceed? Mix it myself and put in glases or let it do and pack in stylish packing from beginning?
thanks

I'm not sure whether there would be similar concerns in your country, but in the US there's a fair chance that the type of product you describe would be FDA-regulated, which can obviously open up new layers of complication. You may want to look into the applicability of whatever similar regulations you have and what additional time and costs they would bring before investing too much time.

I had some back pain and a friend gave me some muscle heating cream thing, thought that was kinda cool.

It could potentially be a neat product, targeting athletes (football, basketball, fighters etc) would be the ideal audience.

Do some market research before you invest a lot of money.

Seems like you would have to either create a flashy brand (Man Ointment), target a niche (roadrash?), or make a better product (i.e. non-petroleum). Is there a new natural product you can base it off of?
