Pain happens when your receptors send a signal from your spine to your brain. Cold sensations, like menthol, stimulate receptors to block those signals to relieve pain.
Menthol stimulates cold receptors that create a cooling sensation on and under your skin, helping to relieve pain. Our formula has optimized the ideal menthol concentration.
Contrary to popular belief, ice doesn't reduce swelling but it does reduce pain. Biofreeze induces the exact same response as ice, only faster. You're also less likely to experience stiffness, skin irritation, temporary pain and numbness, and the inactivity required during application as you would with ice.
Applying Biofreeze directly to the skin can bring targeted and effective pain relief without the risks that come with an oral pill.
