  • Full Description
INCI: Methyl Salicylate

Methyl salicylate is a naturally occurring compound produced by a number of plants including Wintergreen, Birch and Meadowsweet. Today most Methyl salicylate is in fact man-made rather than extracted from plants making it much cheaper but still just as effective. Methyl salicylate has many uses, the most common being as a rubefacient and analgesic in heating liniments and sports creams.
Studies have shown it to be effective for acute muscle and joint pain though it is still not entirely known how it works. It is however understood that it is metabolised into Salicylic acid once absorbed into the body. Salicylic acid is the active ingredient in Asprin and is a well known anti-inflammatory compound.

This product is intended for external use only
