The active ingredient in our warming agent Evicare® heat is Vanillyl Butyl Ether, which is manufactured from vanillin. While the vanilla-like odor of the starting material is kept, the function is completely different: Evicare® heat is able to interact with the TRPV1 receptors on human skin to induce a gentle but long-lasting warming sensation. The onset is typically within 5-10 minutes, while the warming effect can last for several hours.
Evicare® heat induces a pleasant warming sensation upon application to the skin, and is often used in warming creams designed for treatment of the back or the feet as well as gels and creams to warm muscles before or after sports.
