Menthol is an organic compound that is made synthetically or extracted from the oils of corn mint or peppermint or from other mints as well. In appearance, it is often seen as a waxy, crystalline substance, clear or white in colour, that is solid at room temperature and can melt at a temperature slightly above the room temperature.
Menthol has local anaesthetic as well as counterirritant qualities, and it is most commonly used to relieve minor throat irritation. Moreover, menthol also acts as a weak kappa opioid receptor agonist. It is included in several products, and these include:
As an antipruritic to reduce itching.
In non-prescribed products for short-term relief of minor sore throat or mouth or throat irritation like in lip balms or cough medicines.
As a topical analgesic, that is often utilised to relieve minor aches or pains, like muscle cramps, sprains, headaches, or similar conditions, either alone or combined with chemicals like camphor, eucalyptus oil, or capsaicin.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Menthol production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
This report provides the cost structure of Mentha oil production by steam distillation process. The dried leaves of Mentha arvensis go through the process of steam-distillation. The distillate is then separated through filtration to extract mentha oil.
This report provides the cost structure of aniseed oil production by steam distillation method. In this process, steam is passed over the dried fruit of aniseed which vapourised the oil into the steam.
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
