Product Information

  • Age: 12 years +

    Maximum per order: 2

  • Pregnancy: Not suitable

    Breastfeeding: Not suitable

Movelat is a medication which relieves pain and is prescribed for:

  • relieving inflammation and pain in strains and sprains
  • relieving muscle stiffness and pain
  • relieving inflammation and pain in non-serious arthritic conditions and also in cases of rheumatic pain.


The active ingredients in both the gel and cream are mucopolysaccharide polysulphate and salicylic acid.

As an anti-inflammatory, as well as a pain-relieving medicine, mucopolysaccharide polysulphate works by reducing the production of leukotriene and prostaglandins, natural inflammatory substances produced by the body in response to injury and also certain diseases. These substances cause pain, swelling and inflammation and when mucopolysaccharide polysulphate is applied to the affected areas, it reduces the pain.

Salicylic acid enhances the mucopolysaccharide polysulphate’s ability to penetrate the skin, by breaking down the protein, keratin, a part of the skin structure. By loosening the outer layer of skin, the loosened skin is shed and the way of entry for the cream or gel is much easier.

Movelat gets to work beneath the surface of the skin, because it combines the two active ingredients which make penetration of the outer layer of skin much easier. The MPS (mucopolysaccharide polysulfate) anti-inflammatory and salicylic acid, the absorption enhancer, work together, the salicylic acid softening the skin and the MPS being absorbed, to work more closely on the affected areas.


Movelat gives the following points:

  • it is a dual action formula that gives relief where it is needed
  • comes as a cream or a gel
  • is easily absorbed
  • has fifty years of credit to its name.


Doing more than heat patches and cooling gels which simply heat or cool the skin, movelat contains an ingredient which has been clinically-proven to relieve pain, by going directly to the areas affected.
