Why no menthol for babies?
The menthol praised in most chest rub formulations does not break up mucus in the airways as advertised. The smell of menthol tricks the brain into thinking we are breathing easier, but it does not actually assist in clearing congestion. Inflammation often worsens. Certain ingredients are recognized as irritants to the body, causing the body to produce more mucus to protect its airways. In babies and young children this is especially dangerous, considering their airways are much narrower than those of adults.
