How long do gel packs stay cold?
As a general rule, our gel cold packs stay cold for approx 10-15 minutes. How long they stay cold is influenced by a few factors. The cold packs are kept in either the fridge or freezer. Our gel cold packs will remain flexible, but take on the temperature of its surroundings. Cold packs taken from the freezer will be colder than those taken from the fridge and stay colder for longer. Once being used, the ambient temperature of the surroundings will influence the length of time the cold packs remain cold. If being used outside on a warm day, expect them to lose cold temperature more quickly than if being used inside.
What is in a cold pack gel?
The main ingredient of the gel in our cold packs is water. We then add a thickener – the same type of component that’s added to toothpaste or energy gels. The last feature is Monopropylene Glycol, which because of its low freezing point, stops the packs from becoming frozen solid when stored in minus temperatures. This same additive is used in food and flavourings, shampoos and hair gels.
Are gel packs better than ice?
Reusable gel packs are more convenient than ice. Stored in the fridge or the freezer makes it easy to grab and use immediately, whereas, with ice, you often have to fashion a makeshift pack to hold the ice in, either from cling-film or a tea towel. Our gel packs remain flexible and have a large surface area, meaning you can cold compress a larger size and bend the cold pack to the contours of the body area being treated.
How do you use cold gel packs?
Firstly, use as directed by your practitioner.
Very simply, take the cold pack from the fridge or freezer and apply to the intended area. The risk of cold burn is minimal and taken from the refrigerator, non-existent. However – best practice (especially if taken from the freezer) is to put a barrier between your skin and the cold pack. A sheet of kitchen roll or a tea towel is perfectly adequate.
Cold therapy is best used little and often. We recommend that you apply our cold packs approx. every 2-3 hours, for about 10 minutes each time. “When you’re numb – you’re done!” Keeping that phrase in mind will help make sure you do not overdo it.
