[External Uses] - ‘Capsicum Frutescens Resin’ is a Capsicum / Chilli Pepper Fruit Extract with analgesic and potent pain-relieving properties when applied to the skin in an oil/cream. This is because it contains Capsaicin which is a compound that is isolated from capsicum/chilli peppers.

When less substance P is produced, pain signals can no longer reach the brain, and feelings of pain decrease.
