Hurtex HEMP GELS are conceptualised differently than other warming products for pain relief. These seek to affect pain by enabling the active ingredients to penetrate through to the site of pain. In practice, to ensure penetration through the skin, this involves the presence of many excipients, which in many cases are an irritant.
HURTEX, ON THE OTHER HAND, USES THE FINDINGS OF SCIENCE SHOWING THAT PAIN IN MUSCLES, TENDONS, JOINTS AND OTHER MUSCULOSKELETAL PROBLEMS CAN BE MORE EFFECTIVELY SUPPRESSED THROUGH THEIR SKIN RECEPTORS. ALL OF CHINESE MEDICINE (e.g. ACUPUNCTURE) IS BASED ON THIS KNOWLEDGE. THIS MAKES IT IDEAL FOR PEOPLE WITH PROBLEMATIC SKIN.
