Frequently Asked Questions.

Q1: How does BodiHeat® Work?
A: The main ingredients of BodiHeat® are iron powder, water, and activated carbon. When you open the pouch, these ingredients are exposed to oxygen in the air that starts a chemical reaction, commonly known as "oxidization." Water, activated carbon and other ingredients accelerate the oxidization and it generates heat, while the iron powder turns to rust!


Q2: What is a low temperature burn?
A: Low temperature burns can occur when a certain amount of heat contacts your skin for a prolonged time, especially if you have sensitive skin. It may cause reddish areas or blister skin. In order to avoid low temperature burn, follow these instructions on the package:

  •  Do not adhere directly to the skin.
  •  Remove BodiHeat immediately if it becomes too warm or uncomfortable.
  •  Use supervision when using BodiHeat on the elderly, children, the physically disabled or handicapped individuals.
