Coolact® 10 is a sensory agent that provides a pleasant cooling effect to the skin. It works by directly stimulating the receptors at the nerve endings of the skin to produce a cooling sensation. The skin does not actually change temperature, but instead the neuro-transmitters are triggered, which sends a signal to the brain resulting in a perceived cooling effect. It is dorless and provides a long- lasting cooling effect which builds gradually during the first 20 minutes after application.
