Sourced from nature, backed by science
The two key ingredients of the BeYou Period Cramp Relief Patch are Eucalyptus and Menthol.
As you know, period cramps are caused by muscle contractions. The eucalyptus and menthol oils get absorbed (slowly) through the skin and help ease that muscular tension. There are dozens of studies to validate this (and any pharmacists / medics amongst you will understand why it works straight away); but we've outlined a few reasons why these two ingredients are so great below.
Eucalyptus oil is both an anti-inflammatory and an analgesic, so it helps to soothe both the inflammation and pain that is associated with muscular tension. It is also a natural vasodilator, meaning it helps to widen blood vessels and improve blood circulation encouraging a free flow of blood to the muscles.
Studies demonstrate that menthol has the ability to reduce the sensation of pain. Like eucalyptus, it has natural analgesic properties which block nerve impulses from pain receptors.
Menthol is also the reason you experience that ‘tingly’ feeling when you put the patch on.
How to use your patch
So easy you can do it with your eyes closed!
Remember the last time you put a plaster on? Using the BeYou Patches is THAT easy!
Witchcraft? No, an all natural product that won’t cramp your style! It gets better though – each pack contains 5 patches so you should have plenty for those days you just need to find a little comfort.
In terms of when to use it. every one is different. some people prefer to apply a patch the day before they might need it, while others prefer to hold out until they really need the effect of these cooling and comfortable patches. Do what works for you!
Step 1: Peel
Peel off the protective liner from the cuts in the middle.
If you can, try not to touch the sticky back of the patch as it may reduce how effectively it sticks to your skin.
Step 2: Place
Place the patch uniformly over the area you want the cooling effect.
You can apply your patch wherever makes you feel comfortable. Some people even apply them on their legs! It really is up to you!
Our patches are versatile so you can use them in whatever way suits YOU best!
Pro Tip: It can take 20-30mins before you start feeling the cooling sensation.
Step 3: Peel
After using, peel the patch off slowly and throw in the bin!
If you're worried about hair, just use some warm water to help! We always advise taking the patch off in the shower, once it has been wet and the adhesive has loosened up a little.
