Deep Heat Regular heat cream is a fast acting, heating pain relief cream for the temporary relief of muscular aches and strains and lower back pain. Applied directly onto the painful area, it provides targeted temporary pain relief and helps speed the muscle healing process.
It can be used every day before, during and after routines for sports and exercise.
Benefits of Methyl Salicylate
Methyl Salicylate is a heating agent that not only heats, but also provides pain relief and aids the muscle healing process. It assists your body’s natural enzymes to decrease the production of prostaglandins that cause pain and inflammation.
Prostaglandins are a group of lipids made at sites of tissue damage or infection, where they cause inflammation, pain and fever as part of the healing process.
Benefits of Menthol
Menthol can be used as a topical analgesic providing temporary pain relief. It also helps reduce swelling when applied immediately after injury.
