Methyl salicylate – effective relief from wintergreen oil
Methyl salicylate is the main component of wintergreen oil, which is extracted from the leaves of various wintergreen shrubs.
When applied externally in combination with menthol, methyl salicylate is said to have an analgesic effect, for example to alleviate pulled muscles. The combination of menthol and camphor improves the skin penetration of methyl salicylate and inhibits its premature breakdown.
