Nicomenthyl® Hot

Nicomenthyl Hot is a particularly balanced mixture that combines the protective, antioxidant and vasoactive properties of Menthyl Nicotinate (a vitamin B3 derivative) with the tonic and warming cosmetic effect of Vanillyl Butyl Ether.

The result is a moderate tingling cutaneous micro-massage, accompanied by a gentle, exotic and long-lasting warming sensation. This makes it the ideal ingredient in personal lubricants and intimate hygiene compositions, and in trichological products, such as anti-hair loss lotions.

It is recommended to add into the formulation at the last step.

Recommended dosage: 0,5 – 3%.
