Item # 1128, Methyl Salicylate

INCI Name: Methyl Salicylate

CAS Numbers: 119-36-8


Methyl Salicylate is also called Wintergreen Oil. This product is used to treat minor aches and pains of the muscles/joints. Methyl salicylate is known as a counterirritant. It works by causing the skin to feel cool and then warm. These feelings on the skin distract you from feeling the aches/pains deeper in your muscles, joints, and tendons. In lesser concentrations, it is used to give a wintergreen flavor or smell to foods and fragrances.

Methyl Salicylate is an active ingredient in sports rubs. It is also used to impart a minty flavor to mouthwash, chewing gun, muscle rubs, air fresheners and perfume.
