Suffering from your menopausal hot flushes? Enter Menthoderm a fast-acting, skin-soother, helping you take back control of your hot flush and using he power of Menthol to help soothe irritated, itchy and hot skin.
Menthol is an organic, plant-derived compound, obtained from peppermint, corn mint, or mint oils.
Its unique cooling effect works by blocking the calcium current along the nerves responsible for detecting temperature.
The nerve endings translate a message to the brain that the skin is cooling, so this effect can effectively help to alleviate heat from the skin and aid in calming the area.
Menthoderm is highly recommended by nurses, dermatologists and doctors.
‘Itchy skin can be devastating for patients, so it is really helpful to have a moisturising cream which contains menthol (Menthoderm), which is cooling, soothing and helps to provide some relief for many patients,’ explains Professor Anthony Bewley, Consultant Dermatologist.
This cream is free from SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) and set in an aqueous base, along with its other skin soothing ingredient – Undecylenic Acid.
This formula gives the all-important skin barrier a double dose of protection helping to potentially reduce the risk of cross contamination and escalating skin conditions.
The Menthoderm® range is available in three strengths and comes in a variety of sizes ranging from 100g for £5.76 to 500g for £21.
