Hisamitsu America launches trio of topical pain relief solutions

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Hisamitsu America on Monday launched three new topical analgesic solutions, the company stated.

The three new products include Salonpas Pain Relieving Gel-Patch Hot, which features capsaicin (0.025%) and menthol (1.25%) in patch form; Salonpas Pain Relieving Massage Foam with active ingredients menthol (3%) and methyl salicylate (10%) in a self-massage topical analgesic format; and Salonpas Pain Relieving Jet Spray with active ingredients menthol (3%) and methyl salicylate (10%) that utilizes a highly pressurized jet force as its application mechanism.

"While most Americans turn to OTC pills to relieve pain, topical analgesic pain relief — as found in patches, creams, foams and sprays — is gaining greater market recognition, and we are proud to have been voted the 'Best New Topical Analgesic in 2012' by Better Homes & Gardens," stated John Incledon, Hisamitsu America president and CEO.
