Newtons' Nettle cream contains 10% of Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica) extract in a vegetable sorbolene cream base. The hairs, or spines, of the stinging nettle are normally very painful to the touch. When they come into contact with a painful area of the body, however, they can actually decrease the original pain. Scientists think nettle does this by interfering with the way the body transmits pain signals.
