Pharmacological properties

Menthol has a local irritant, analgesic, distracting, antipruritic, antiseptic, sedative effect. the effect is due to reflex reactions associated with irritation of sensitive nerve endings: irritation of the skin receptors stimulates the formation and release of endogenous biologically active substances (enkephalins, endorphins, peptides, kinins) that are involved in the regulation of pain, vascular permeability and other processes that provide painkiller, distracting and antipruritic effect. distracting effect helps to reduce the severity of pain. local action is accompanied by a narrowing of blood vessels, a feeling of cold, which turns into a sensation of light burning and tingling. skin-visceral reflexes improve trophic tissue (according to the innervation zones). menthol reflexively changes the tone of the vessels, both superficial and deeply located in the tissues and internal organs.

Camphor has an antiseptic, locally irritating, analeptic, anti-aggregation effect. Reflexively excites vasomotor and respiratory centers, exerting analeptic activity. It has peripheral vasopressor activity. Inhibits platelet aggregation. Standing out from the body through the respiratory tract, it promotes expectoration. With local application, it displays distracting properties.

Thymol is an antiseptic and disinfectant. By destroying enzymes important for the viability of microorganisms, it prevents the spread of the rotting process and delays it if it has already begun.

Methyl salicylate has an anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect. It non-selectively inhibits COX, reduces the synthesis of prostaglandins. It normalizes the increased permeability of capillaries, improves microcirculation processes, reduces edema and infiltration of inflamed tissues.

Eucalyptus oil has an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effect. Topical application reduces sensitivity. Eucalyptus oil also stimulates cardiac activity.

Turpentine oil is used topically to treat colds as a distracting and warming agent.
