Deep Heat Relaunch SA’s Only Ibuprofen Gel, Deep Relief – Featured Durban Blog

Deep Heat Relaunch SA’s Only Ibuprofen Gel, Deep Relief:

This week we were invited to try out the new Deep Relief by Deep Heat.

Mentholatum SA, a health & wellness company and the makers of Deep Heat have relaunched the only Ibuprofen gel on the South African Market – Deep Relief Ibuprofen Gel.
Many people think that muscle and joint pain is primarily derived from activities such as gym or running. The truth is that the common causes of pain are daily activities such as lifting, handling or even poor posture.
Simple tasks such as looking at your phone, typing at your keyboard, poor posture, carrying shopping bags and the kids, cleaning your home and even driving are common culprits behind niggly pains that don’t go away.
For the everyday athlete, aches and pains can really set you back and hinder your progress. Training whilst enduring pain can sometimes make problems worse. 
So how do you treat the pain? Well there are various ways.
For most people continuously using painkillers is not ideal for a multitude of reasons. When compared to oral anti-inflammatory medication, topical anti-inflammatory gels such as Deep Relief were found to offer numerous benefits. Topical gels are directly absorbed at the site of injury thus the product doesn’t pass through the internal organs and it has a lower incidence of gastro-intestinal side effects.
Deep Relief Ibuprofen Gel is a topical anti-inflammatory and analgesic which treats acute musculo-skeletal pain fast and effectively.1
It combines the powerful pain-relieving action of Ibuprofen and the immediate cooling sensation of Menthol.2
The ability to apply the gel directly to the affected area means you will receive targeted pain relief that is also long lasting. It’s also non-greasy which is great and it has the pleasant scent of menthol. Deep Relief Ibuprofen Gel is ideal for the mom with the aching back to the marathon runner. With the many marathons coming up this year this might be the ideal gel to take with on each run.
Why this product is a differentiator on the market:
Deep Relief is a powerful topical anti-inflammatory and analgesic intended for the symptomatic relief of acute painful musculo-skeletal conditions caused by trauma such as sports injuries, sprains, strains and contusions. Deep Relief Gel formulation is non-greasy and contains 5% Ibuprofen and 3% Menthol. It is known as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
·          It works at both levels of the pain mechanism; on inflammation as well as disrupting pain signals.2
·          It combines the powerful pain-relieving action of Ibuprofen and the immediate cooling sensation of Menthol.2
·          The formulation has penetration enhancers, which speed up the absorption of the Ibuprofen through the skin directly to the point of pain in the muscles and joints.3
·          The topical application is an effective alternative to oral Ibuprofen. This helps avoid unwanted gastro intestinal side effects associated with chronic use of oral medication.4

Good news for shoppers is that Deep Relief is available in various sizes, making it convenient to keep on hand. The 30g & 50g tubes are available on the shelf in store whilst the 100g is found behind the pharmacy counter. You can get it at Clicks, Dis-Chem, Pick n Pay, Checkers, Shoprite & selected pharmacies.
“Everyone is susceptible to aches and pains. Deep Relief Ibuprofen Gel will tick all the boxes for those who struggle with daily pain, from the serious athlete to those hunching over their desks at work. We are proud to relaunch this brand to the market with a new look and 30g pack size, but most importantly to aid those in their pain management in a fast, effective and convenient manner,” says Lisa Bell, Deep Relief Brand Manager.
Further testament to the efficacy of the product is an endorsement from Sports Scientist Russell Looms, “Deep Relief is a fantastic product. We use it to assist in inflammatory processes & with numerous injuries. It contains Ibuprofen which is great for athletes and individuals, plus it’s a topical treatment which means it doesn’t get into the circulatory system. We use Deep Relief at loads of events, and in our practice –the response from athletes as well the general public has been phenomenal – therefore we will continue to use this awesome product.”
We tried it out in the office and one of our staff members mentioned that she was suffering from some bad muscle pain in her legs. She tried it out overnight and the next day she was feeling better.
