How does it work?
Bonjela gel and Bonjela cool mint gel both contain two active ingredients, choline salicylate and cetalkonium chloride.
Choline salicylate belongs to a group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It is similar to, but not the same as aspirin. Choline salicylate works by blocking the action of a substance in the body called cyclo-oxygenase.
