    Default Keeping Gel packs in the car--effects of heat on product

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    Hi,
    I'm a noob here as I mention in my other post--I poked around and didn't see this topic so here goes: I have been keeping a couple gel packs of Chikara in my car, and was wondering, here in SoCal where I live, if my car is parked in the sun it gets quite hot inside(the gel packs aren't in the direct sun, but still . . .). Does the heat have any adverse effects on the effectiveness of the product?

    Thanks in advance.

    IMO, if the heat is not direct sunlight and not hot enough to burst the packets, you are OK.
    To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.

    In my experience with gel packs, sometimes heat will thin the gel down a bit and make it a little runny. Body heat does this too (from carrying in your pocket) But it has no effect on how the product works.

    Just don't torch it with direct heat.

    Good point. Easier to apply when at room temperature.
