Aescin, diethylamine salicylate.
Description
Each 100 g of gel contains aescin 1 g and diethylamine salicylate 5 g.
Action
Reparil-N Gel is a special formulation in an alcohol base with a 3-fold action: Anti-oedematous, anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving.
Aescin, in a form which penetrates the skin, inhibits the accumulation of fluid in the tissues and reduces tissue swelling. Local swelling, which causes sensations of heaviness and tension, is rapidly eliminated. It effectively combats inflammatory processes.
The salicylic acid compound enhances the anti-inflammatory action and is extremely effective for relieving deep-seated pain.
In addition, Reparil-N Gel has the following advantages: Reparil-N Gel is transparent and penetrates rapidly and completely into the affected tissues; Reparil-N Gel does not make the skin greasy, does not smear and is therefore particularly clean and pleasant to use; Reparil-N Gel cools the painful area, is kind to the skin and is outstandingly well tolerated even on sensitive parts of the skin.
