Nature Meets Science.
For centuries, African people have used powerful botanicals as traditional healing elixirs. Terres d’Afrique has studied how people use these relatively unknown ingredients. The curative and restorative power of many African plants is legendary for a reason. They work. In crafting our products, we have combined these ingredients in potent formulations that maximise their skin care benefits; the culmination of years of exploration, field research and laboratory development.
Deep Tissue Gel
With Aloe Ferox, Arnica, Peppermint & Eucalpytus
For the best results, our Deep Tissue Gel is most often combined with the Menthol Spray and Deep Tissue Massage Oil. This simple formula aims to reduce pain and inflammation in muscles and joints.
The gel is massaged into the skin, using wooden balls. A plant native to South Africa, aloe ferox has more medicinal value than aloe vera and improves the deep tissue penetration of the other ingredients.
It also has anti-inflammatory properties of its own. Arnica, the tried-and-tested remedy for many aches and pains, and eucalyptus oil strengthen the gel’s anti-inflammatory effect, with compounds such as helenalin, cineole and carnosol.
Eucalyptus and peppermint are effective pain-relievers (acting on the receptors of sensory nerve endings) and muscle relaxants.
