Cannabinoid Extract

A 2018 study (1) tested its efficacy over various patients and found it useful in overall pain management for chronic pain. Another study (2) found it helpful for arthritic pain management due to its anti-inflammatory and pain reliever properties.

Menthol

Menthol is found in mint plants and is a popular ingredient in topical pain relievers. It first cools and then warms the skin, getting rid of minor aches and pains. A study (3) tested its effectiveness against the use of ice for pain relief and found menthol to provide better results.

Other Ingredients

The cream contains water, glycerine, Cucumis sativus fruit extract, Bentonite clay, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Oleosomes, Phenoxyethanol, Lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, and tocopherol (vitamin E), Benzyl Alcohol, chamomile Recutita (Matricaria) fruit extract, and dehydroacetic acid.

Cucumis Sativus

A cucumber extract is a staple ingredient in this topical cream. It has anti-inflammatory properties and can treat broken, irritated, or inflamed skin.

Bentonite Clay, Vitamin E, Glycerine, and Safflower Extract 

These ingredients have anti-inflammatory agents and ensure the cream does not damage the skin.

Phenoxyethanol and Dehydroacetic Acid 

Both these ingredients are preservatives that protect the cream from external agents that can reduce its efficacy.

All other ingredients act as supporting agents to ensure the cream absorbs quickly into the skin and does not damage it. Essential oils and fruit extracts give the product a pleasant smell, ideal for all topical treatments.
