If you saw our recent post on cosmetics that are really drugs, you know that topical analgesics belong to a category of OTC drugs. Today were here to tell you about a new entry in that category: Bengay Zero Degrees Pain Relieving Gel.Less smellyThis product is noteworthy for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, it uses menthol as an active ingredient instead of the more common methyl salicylate. This means there is MUCH less residual odor. If youre like me youll forgo occasional use of topical pain relievers because you dont want your clothes or your bedding to smell like a roll of wintergreen Lifesavers. While there may be some trade off in pain reduction it might be worth it.
