The history of medicated patches in Japan reaches back to the 18th century. Hisamitsu inherited this tradition and has worked on improving it since the company was founded in 1847. Salonpas was first introduced in 1934 and is now available in over 50 countries worldwide. Salonpas launched in the United States in 1987 and has been gaining popularity ever since.
SALONPAS® HOT releases Capsaicin, a natural, odor free pain reliever, for long lasting pain relief up to 8 hours. Capsaicin, the compound found in chili, cayenne, and jalapeno peppers, is used topically by many medical professionals to help relieve minor pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis or muscle sprains and strains. Capsaicin alleviates pain by wearing down the pain messangers in an injured area. Specifically, when capsaicin is applied to an inflamed or injured area, it stimulates a pain messager called substance P. SALONPAS® HOT has numerous holes arranged in a pattern of 16 vertical and 12 horizontal.
Active Ingredients: capsaicin 0.025%
