Damaged epithelial tissue and inflammation can give a painful sensation following climbing. To temporarily relieve these sensations a component of camphor laurel wood, camphor, acts as an external analgesic and vasodilator.


Additionally, the pro vitamin dexpanthenol has been shown to reduce and prevent future inflammation by "significantly accelerating skin barrier repair."[1].


These effects, in addition to evaporation of afterCLIMBs medium may reduce skin pain caused by climbing.
