Nicomenthyl® is composed of pure Menthyl niconate, with no residues of other nicotinates, obtained through a new proprietary industrial synthesis process, developed over 20 years of research at Multichem R&D Laboratories in Milan.

Nicomenthyl® represents a new and revolutionary substance for cosmetic use that can significantly activate the cutaneous microcirculation without causing bothersome hyperemia or irritations, on the contrary it generates a pleasant hot-cold sensation in the area of application.

The use of Nicomenthyl (Menthyl niconate) in topical formulations for the improvement of sexual response has been internationally patented by Multichem R&D

Recent studies have shown that Nicomenthyl® has as well significant antioxidant, detoxifying, anti-pollution, repairing and protective properties thanks to its exceptionally high degree of penetration through the skin barrier and to its high transdermal delivery of niacin.

It is derived from the chemical reaction of two natural components:

  • Menthol, obtained from mint essential oil, has a refreshing and soothing effect on the skin
  • Niacin or Vitamin B3 or Vitamin PP (Pellagra-Preventing) is used by the organism for forming enzymes (NAD and NADP) that are essential for energy metabolism. These coenzymes take part in over 200 enzymatic reactions within the organism. Niacin takes part in the degradation and the assimilation of proteins, fats and glucosides. It plays a fundamental role in the formation of erythrocytes, in blood circulation and in providing oxygen to the cells. Its properties are used in topical applications to improve the barrier effect, to facilitate oxygenation and the nourishment of the skin, as well as for its anti-inflammatory and detoxifying effects.
