Hydrating and fast-absorbing Uspa Red Pepper Thermal Treatment Oil contains Capsicum extract and essential oils of Wintergreen, Menthol, Camphor, Rosehip and Tangerine. USPA recommends their oil for use both before and after a workout, or whilst recovering from injury, to relieve tired and muscle discomfort and stiffness. Massaged in, this oil may also assist with soothing tension headaches.
Capsaicin extract (from Capsicum) provides a warming effect on the skin and may also help to alleviate discomfort from muscle injuries, sore and tired muscles.
Wintergreen has been used for centuries to manage muscle discomfort. Menthol is an organic compound obtained from peppermint oil and has cooling and counter-irritant properties. The cool refreshing feeling is followed by a sensation of warmth. Camphor oil is known to soothe muscle stiffness and aches and produces a cool sensation, similar to menthol.
Tangerine essential oil encourages the removal of toxins from the body. It is readily absorbed by the skin and is helpful for sprains and aching muscles.
Please note: Camphor oil, or any product containing this oil, should not be applied on open wounds or burns. In addition, it is recommended that this product only be used on adults.

How to use
Apply directly to problem areas before or after physical activity. As the essential oils increase micro-circulation, they produce a range of cooling effects. The extent of these effects will depend on the muscle content and skin condition of the area treated.
