Menthol is an organic extract from the Mentha plant. The Mentha genus of plants are found in the mint family and can be used for flavoring or fragrance, but it is also known for its cooling sensation and healing properties. This cooling effect mimics ice when used in topicals for pain relief.
Menthol is known for reducing pain, fighting bacteria and boosting energy and brain function. According to this article.
Many over-the-counter (OTC) products contain menthol, but they usually do not exceed 3% menthol. PainXPro Hemp has taken it a step further and included 10% menthol in thier Max Strength Pain Freeze Cream, making it one of the most potent product on the market. This can be found in our Extra Strength Freeze Pump product.
Menthol has been approved by the FDA and safe when used in accordance with the Drug Facts label. If you have any specific questions about a product, you should consult with your healthcare provider if you have any specific questions about a product.
