Ovelle Menthol & Wintergreen cream is a topical pain relief product that is applied externally to the skin to exert an analgesic(pain relieving) effect. Prescription medications may be addictive and like all medicines can cause several adverse effects.
1. Can offer an alternative to taking pills for pain relief.
2. Can provide pain relief directly at the point of pain without having to take pills.
3. Recommended as the first line treatment for muscular aches, pain and injuries.
4. Reduces blood flow to an injured area which in turn slows the rate of inflammation and reduces the risk of swelling and tissue damage.
5. Numbs sore tissues, acting as a local anaesthetic, and slows down the pain messages being transmitted to the brain
Indications: In the local management of the symptoms of fibrositis, muscle strains and arthroses.
Fibrositis is pain or inflammation of the muscle sheaths, muscles and connective-tissue layers of the bones, tendons, muscles, and joints. The commonly affected areas in fibrositis include the muscular regions of the lower back, shoulder, neck, arms, chest, hips and thighs. Adults aged between 30 and 60 years old are more commonly affected by it. Also, Fibrositis affects women more than men.
Muscle Strain refers to damage to a muscle or its attaching tendons, caused by undue pressure on muscles during the course of normal daily activities, with sudden heavy lifting, during sports, or while performing work tasks. Strains can happen in any muscle, but they’re most common in your lower back, neck, shoulder, and hamstring. These strains can cause pain and may limit movement within the affected muscle group.
Arthroses is the plural of arthrosis, arthrosis or osteoarthritis (OA) is a disease that damages the slippery tissue that covers the ends of bones in a joint. This allows bones to rub together. The rubbing causes pain, swelling, and loss of motion of the joint. Over time, the joint may lose its normal shape. Unlike some other forms of arthritis, osteoarthritis affects only joints.

The active ingredients Methyl salicylate, Oleoresin capsicum, Menthol & Turpentine oil all have a long history of medicinal use primarily as topical counterirritants for the treatment of rheumatic disorders and muscle pain. They work by causing the skin to feel cool and then warm. These feelings on the skin distracts from feeling the aches/pains deeper in your muscles, joints, and tendons. The active ingredients provide pain-relief plus heat. Heat therapy helps to increase blood supply to relax and soothe the area.
