Origins: Capsaicin is derived from hot peppers of the Capsicum genus and was first isolated as an active ingredient in the late 1800’s. Used topically, it is a potent natural analgesic with deep penetrating characteristics. Almond Oil (Prunus amygdalus dulcis) has been a valued emollient for centuries and is known for its nourishing and soothing properties. Natural Rice Bran Extract is sourced from the husk and inner germ of rice and contains phytosterols, Vitamin E and other anti-oxidants.

THe product seems effective, except one needs to use rubber glovesd applying this cream, because even after thorough washiing of hands,,if one touches ones eyes the residue causes the eyes to burn, which does not happen when using rubber gloves. I would suggest to add this advice to your warnings on your label.
