Potent Pain Relief via Topical Organic Preparations

When sore knees, arthritis, back pain, and sports injuries start occurring more frequently in your life, you’ll be blown away by the pain relief organic skin preparations deliver. 

To help you manage expectations, let’s understand some fascinating skin facts, starting with two key definitions.

Penetration - references a formulation’s ability to pass through the various layers of skin. lab-manufactured analgesic chemicals have been known to penetrate the formidable stratum corneum, the outer layer. This first step has to counter the whole purpose of the skin, which exists as a brilliantly designed lipid matrix of robust, long-wearing cells serving to prevent anything from penetrating it in the first place.

Absorption - references the depth to which ingredients reach having penetrated all the layers of the skin, including being able to enter the bloodstream.

Why Organic Ingredients Win the Day

Rather than arouse the skin’s innate protective defenses, which are fully aroused when coming in contact with chemical carriers used in synthetic skin creams, including and probably primarily in cosmetics, organic preparations are delivered through all the layers of skin, to the bloodstream, ligaments, tendons, muscles and bone!

Perry Antelman, CEO of Abacus Health Products explains the benefits of natural emollients, such as shea butter; ‘They’re natural oils, so they work well with your skin and are absorbed quickly.’ 

Now combine that reality with the analgesic properties of natural ingredients and you have a winning formula for delivering pain relief where you need it most!

Pure Potency of Nature’s Apothecary

Antelman next relates the double-whammy delivered by nature’s medicinal properties, saying:  

‘When essential oils such as eucalyptus, tea tree, clove, peppermint, and hemp are combined with common analgesics such as menthol and camphor, the pain relief felt is often enhanced because essential oils such as these are believed to have complementary components of their own.’ 

The Secret Soft Spots of Your Skin

All skin is not equal. The skin covering your heels is tougher than the skin on your face, for example. It is thicker in places and less so in others. When organic preparations are applied topically to an area of injury, for example, you do best to apply it to the pain site. However, if you need pain relief more generally, for those ongoing body aches and pains, try applying the salve or balm to more sensitive areas of skin.

Soft spots of the skin, listed from fastest to slowest areas:

  • Scrotum
  • Inner thighs
  • Forehead
  • Armpits
  • Scalp
  • Back
  • Abdomen 
  • Palms 
  • Arch of the foot

The cherry on the top is that while synthetic skin products lack both penetration and absorption, leaving a greasy film on the top of the skin, natural ingredients play nice with your skin. You’ll feel the difference in the softness and smoothness of your skin and in the bone-deep penetration that gives you pain relief.
