Reusable hot/cold gel packs are medical devices that are frequently used at home when any kind of pain occurs. Learn more about the product and its benefits.
On this page you are going to discover:
Gel packs are usually composed of these ingredients: water, a thickening agent, a freezing agent, silica gel, and a non-toxic dye (usually blue). Of these ingredients, the temperature-lowering agent is the one that causes the greatest concern if ingested, most of the time consisting of propylene glycol.
Reusable ice packs are safe to use with children, but we always recommend the supervision of an adult.
Hot and cold gel packs can have different uses depending on the pain to be treated.
Cold is excellent for all those who can run into small injuries and seek relief quickly because it has several benefits:
Heat contributes to our well-being in a different way than cold: it is as if it lubricates the blood flow, also acting on the joints, improving their flexibility. A gel ice pack is also perfect for treating neck pain, back pain, rheumatism, hypothermia, and any chronic pain you might have.
To enjoy hot or cold therapy you have to prepare your gel packs before applying them to your body. You can microwave or freeze them following your necessity (whether you need hot or cold therapy).
Place it in the freezer for 2 hours. If you want a less "frozen" effect, try touching the gel pack once in a while and remove it from the freezer when it has reached the consistency you want.
Apply the cold or hot gel for about 15 minutes on the painful area. Once the reaction is activated and the bag is cooled or heated, the effect lasts about 30 minutes. Unlike instant ice packs, they can be reused, reducing waste considerably.
