ZAX'S ORIGINAL BRUISE CREAM IS UNIQUELY FORMULATED WITH ARNICA, WITCH HAZEL AND MENTHOL.
ARNICA - contains sesquiterpene lactones, which may assist in healing of bruises by: decreasing swelling, speeding blood reabsorption and decreasing pain. Arnica is recommended for external use only. Stop using arnica if a skin rash develops.
WITCH HAZEL - contains tannins that give it astringent properties. It eases bruising by tightening stretched veins and restoring blood vessel tone. Witch hazel is recommended for external use.
MENTHOL - Often derived from peppermint oil and has local anaesthetic and counterirritant qualities. It can provide soothing cooling relief to bruised areas.
TRADITIONALLY USED IN HERBAL MEDICINE TO TREAT PAIN AND INFLAMMATION OF BRUISES.
DOSING - Adults (over 12 years): For best results, massage gently onto affected area, as soon as bruise-related injury occurs. Continue using until bruise disappears, up to a maximum of 7 days.
