Evaporation is a process which involves a liquid changing to a gas. When a liquid evaporates it loses the warmest particles first, and the remaining particles are cooler.
Alcohols used in the Rapid Cooling Mist evaporate at a lower heat and at a faster rate than water. The particles warmed by the skin quickly evaporate, drawing the heat energy away from the skin.
This results in a faster and greater reduction in skin temperature than water evaporation alone. This high performance cooling makes the Mist ideal for tackling the rapid increase in skin temperature associated with a hot flash.
Another benefit of this process is that it avoids shocking the skin with cold ice packs, gels, or similar, that otherwise might be used.
