HOW IT WORKS
MEDICINE EMBEDDED INTO FABRIC
GREEN DROP™ combines high-performance compression products with medicine by bonding medication into fabric fibers through a patented textile finishing treatment.
Our proprietary MUSCLE RUB formulation synergizes the benefits of camphor, wintergreen and safflower oil, assisting in recovery and relief of muscular aches.
- Camphor & Wintergeen (Methyl Salicylate) both classed as topical analgesics and aid in the relief & recovery of muscular aches
- Safflower Oil a common ingredient used as a skin-safe carrier of actives, to assist the transfer of ingredients into body
MUSCLE RUB is infused into all sleeves & socks, and layered in targeted locations to reduce pain and inflammation across certain muscle groups.
Description of ingredients;
- Benefits of Camphor
- Camphor has a unique ability to interact with the body’s epidermal nociceptors. It efficiently activates and desensitizes receptors to provide an analgesic (pain relieving) effect. Camphor is also known to improve blood circulation.
- Benefits of Wintergreen
- Wintergreen contains Methyl Salicylate, a common ingredient used in products to relieve musculoskeletal aches and pains through its natural warming effect. Methyl Salicylate is quickly absorbed by the skin and shown to provide relief from muscle pain.
- Benefits of Safflower Oil
- Safflower oil is a common ingredient used in skin care products to facilitate other active ingredients (In this case, helping to release Camphor and Wintergreen.) and to help moisturize skin as well
