Summer is on its way and with that all the little mosquitos and bugs that come out. In Japan we use mosquito coils, which can be found in every country, but sometimes you just get a mosquito bite and nothing is more annoying. In Japan we use a product to take away the itch and heal the bite called KINKAN.
KINKAN has excellent effects on insect bites, itching, also for stiff shoulders, lumbar pain, bruising and sprains by removing heat from the affected site and suppressing the conduction of itching/pain.

Aqueous ammonia 21.3 mL
ℓ -menthol 1.97 g

Capsicum tincture 0.35 mL (35 mg as an amount of raw herbal medicine)
This product contains ginseng extract as an additive and alcohol as a solvent.
Dose and administration

（1）When this product is used by children, use it under the supervision of a parent or guardian.

Keep this product away from flammable sources such as heating devices because there is a risk of explosion or ignition.
Do not leave the product in a car because the temperature is prone to be very high inside.

On holiday I always keep Kinkan in my bag, just I keep a bottle to touch up when I need protection from the sun.
We only have a few bottles left at our store.
