It exerts a beneficial, fresh and soothing cutaneous micro-massage, accompanied by a pleasant, stimulating feeling of wellness and turgidity, which makes it the ideal ingredient, for instance, in shaving and after shave products, refreshing body lotions, sun care products, oral hygiene products, intimate hygiene products, spa treatments, etc.
