Camphor is used in cosmetic products for massage, with a refreshing and anti-itching effect. It has toning and firming properties. It is used at low concentrations because high doses can irritate the skin and render it sensitive to touch. Camphor acts on the vasomotor nerves which constrict and dilate blood vessels and thus ensure correct blood flow. It also soothes cramps caused by the cold, and is used to stabilise blood circulation, in particular in the case of low blood pressure. It also relieves and soothes muscle cramps of the calf, for example.
