MENTHOL produces a cooling sensation and pain-killing effect. It blocks the calcium current along the nerves responsible for detecting temperature, sending the message that the body or skin is cooling. Menthol has itch reducing, antibacterial, antifungal, and penetration-enhancing properties. After causing the skin to feel cool, menthol then causes it to feel warm, presenting a distraction from the pains deeper in the muscles and joints.
Providing the skin with a cooling sensation and pleasantly refreshing scent.
