Benzocaine - One of the most prevalent anesthetics used in medicine today. Benzocaine works by inhibiting voltage-dependent sodium channels on neuron membranes. It has a very fast onset and is generally well-tolerated, making it popular for a variety of applications.
Lidocaine - A commonly used topical anesthetic that was discovered in the 1940's. Lidocaine works by blocking sodium channels which, when used topically, prohibits local neurons from signaling the brain. When applied directly to the skin, Lidocaine has an onset of approximately 4 minutes.
Tetracaine - A longer acting anesthetic which works by changing the function of ryanodine receptors that control the release of intracellular calcium. Onset time is typically longer than either Benzocaine or Lidocaine when applied topically.
BLT cream can be ordered in quantities as low as a single jar for contracted customers. Volume discounts are available.
