Hairstylists, and other salon professionals, face a range of challenges that can impact both their bodies and minds on a daily basis.

Global research shows that four out of five hairdressers experience work-related skin irritations on their hands. Being on their feet all day, while keeping arms raised and holding scissors and blow dryers also take a toll.

Of course, doing stretches both at the salon and at home can help alleviate this pain. So does actively moving those body parts by strengthening muscles, walking or any sort of aerobic activity. There are also many steps that can be taken to avoid Carpal Tunnel pain. But what about a quick relief that can be massaged into skin near the site of soreness?

To help salon professionals combat muscle soreness, Parodi Professional Care introduces Comforting Muscle Lotion. Specifically formulated for everyone leading an active workday or lifestyle that results in sore or overworked muscles due to over-exertion, this skin care product rolls on to skin, cooling and soothing overworked muscles.  

“I firmly believe that every hard-working, or hard-playing, person deserves to feel great every day and all day long,” says Linda Gillette Parodi, founder and CEO of Parodi Professional Care.

The lotion is formulated with menthol and camphor to calm and relax tired muscles, and arnica and magnesium oil to soothe them. Parodi’s HypeauProtm blend of natural herbal ingredients, including Spilanthes and Hypericum, softens and moisturizes skin. With continued use, sore, overworked muscles can feel relaxed and refreshed, while skin feels hydrated and soft.

  • Active ingredients specifically do the following:
  • Arnica, an extract from the dried flower heads of Arnica Montana plant, is widely recognized for calming and soothing properties. It is one of the best-known herbal sports medicines that help speed the healing process after an injury.
  • Magnesium Oil, which isn’t actually oil but magnesium chloride suspended in water. Active people and sports enthusiasts know that magnesium oil and massage can greatly calm stiff and sore muscles.
  • Evening Primrose Oil (EPO), with high levels of antioxidants making it an important ingredient in skin preparations meant to smooth roughness.
