Description

Mooverix is a specially formulated Methyl salicylate, Camphor and Menthol cream. It penetrates into skin to provide fast relief from pain and stiffness of minor arthritis and muscle aches. Mooverix cream is fast acting, strong medicine that penetrates deep down to provide long lasting and effective relief. Methyl salicylate has been shown that first pass metabolism exists in the skin and rapidly hydrolyzing salicylate ester to release the active salicylate in both epidermis and dermis. It alleviates pain and inflammation by inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandins that occur in inflamed tissues. Camphor numbs the nerve endings. The nerve endings then no longer transmit the sensation of pain. Camphor is highly volatile and readily absorbed through the skin. It produces a cool sensation and acts as a mild local anesthetic. Menthol increases the penetration of drugs when applied on the skin to give a faster onset of action. It dilates the blood vessels causing a sensation of coldness followed by an analgesic effect.
