Do you suffer from motion sickness when driving, flying or sailing? Many otherwise healthy people do, and often right in the middle of that long-awaited holiday or fishing trip.
It is a debilitating experience that can make a misery out of travel or recreational activities. Worse, most currently available treatments have the drawback of causing severe drowsiness and a dry mouth – side effects that are as unwanted as the motion sickness itself.
Available without a prescription. Our over-the-counter product is highly effective at preventing the nausea, dizziness and fatigue of this common ailment from occurring.
It is a specialised ‘transdermal’ cream containing active ingredients that are clinically proven to help with nausea and motion sickness. By delivering the drugs through the skin rather than through the gut, the stomach is bypassed, and the drugs enter the circulation more slowly and evenly over the space of the day. This means that dosing is not as frequent, and less side effects occur.
It is formulated in a smooth, moisturising cream base that is easily-applied, non-comedogenic and free of parabens.
The cream should be applied to a clean, dry, hairless area behind the ear. Apply at least 4 hours before its effect is needed to allow the medication sufficient time to be absorbed across the skin and to become effective.
The side effects of our Motion Sickness Cream should be minimal. If they occur at all they are usually limited to mild sedation (sleepiness or drowsiness) and a dry mouth — however unlike a tablet and because it is a cream, any side effects that do occur can be easily managed by simply applying less on the next application.

It definitely is a historic time. With all the fear and uncertainty in the world at the moment, we are experiencing things not seen since the mid 20th Century. Shortages on basic manufactured necessities such as toilet paper, foodstuffs and even medicines.
Pharmacists have the skills and expertise to prepare medicines themselves and have done so for hundreds of years. A modern compounding pharmacist has the equipment, resources and access to a wide range of raw materials to make replacement products in many situations. Should you be unable to find a medicine for yourself or your family, speak to your Border Compounding pharmacist immediately.
Washing your hands is a powerful weapon.
In the current environment where people are rushing out to buy sanitisers and washes to kill off COVID-19 and prevent its transmission, there has been a raft of misinformation on what to use and what works. This hasn’t been helped by shortages and people trying to find alternatives in the face of sold out sanitisers.
