Other people call these Black Ice Patches, but we like to call them Black Gold Patches! You might ask why? Well, we will give you 6 reasons.
The Black Ice Medicated Patches:
- Help to relieve minor muscle and joint aches and pains
We have experimented with these and love them! Our team even got so creative as to use the Black Ice Patches for skin irritations too. But read more and then try for yourself!
- Contain pain relieving menthol
Did you know that menthol is a counter-irritant? It has been clinically shown to activate cold-sensitive receptors in the skin to help with pain and inflammation because of the immediate cooling relief it provides. Menthol can be taken from peppermint plants, corn mint plants, or other mint plants.
- Infused with charcoal for added benefits
Black Ice Medicated Patches are made with medical-grade activated charcoal. This is the same type of charcoal that is used in water filters and hospitals because of its abundant detoxifying properties. Charcoal poultices have been used since the ancient times to aid in reducing inflammation by improving circulation, causing quicker healing times. Furthermore, these Black Ice Patches, while providing relief from pain, also help pull toxins from the covered area.
If you have ever tried to make a charcoal poultice, you know that this non-messy charcoal patch is a wonderful alternative! Black Ice has infused their specially formulated hydrogel patches with activated charcoal for increased effectiveness and no mess!
- Hydrogel patch for a breathable adhesive
Because our skin is waterproof and porous, the Black Ice Patch is particularly formulated with hydrogel. This allows the charcoal and menthol to effectively take action through our skin. This is wonderful because creams and roll-on pain relief products cause dry skin, and they evaporate rather quickly for a shorter pain relief.
- Come in a resealable pouch
This is one of the only charcoal patches that you do not have to refrigerate as well! What a great concept. Take these Black Ice Patches almost anywhere, cut them to size if desirable, and have pain relief on the go in a resealable pouch so they don’t dry out.
- Lasts for 8 hours
Black Ice medicated patches work for 8 hours due to the hydrogel and flexible non-woven fabric backing. This combination in the Black Ice Patches traps the soothing hydrogel so it does not dry, but acts as a moisturizer, all while providing transdermal pain relief all day!
Don’t worry, Black Ice Medicated Patches are non-staining, leave no residue, and peel off gently.
