What’s in Capsicum Patches

Capsicum extract patches provide natural pain relief through a blend of active ingredients that work together to block pain signals and relax muscles. 

Common capsicum pain relief patch components include:

Capsaicin

The core active ingredient derived from hot peppers interrupts pain signal transmission. With repeated use, capsaicin can reduce substance P levels responsible for sending pain messages to the brain.  

Menthol

Added for its cooling, analgesic properties. Menthol creates a chilled sensation that distracts from pain. It also aids capsaicin absorption.

Camphor

A mild pain reliever often used topically that amplifies the effectiveness of capsaicin and menthol for joint or muscular discomfort.  

Methyl Salicylate

Known as wintergreen oil, methyl salicylate provides anti-inflammatory benefits similar to aspirin compounds. It helps relax muscle tightness.

Adhesive

The patching sticking agent, typically a polymer blend, allows continuous contact with the skin so capsaicin can fully permeate.

Inactive Ingredients 

Patches may also contain small percentages of water, minerals, emulsifiers, preservatives, and fragrances to improve shelf life and skin tolerance of active ingredients.

This synergistic mix of natural compounds offers safe, non-addictive pain relief. Capsicum patches leverage the power of capsaicin through complimentary botanicals that maximize muscle and joint comfort.
