Motion Sickness Cream

Motion Sickness Cream

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.

Our approach

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.

How to use our Motion Sickness Cream

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.

Are there any side effects?

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.

Why does my moisturiser sting?
Why does my moisturiser sting?

May 15, 2019

When a moisturiser stings your skin there’s possibly a number of things at play, but generally it’s caused by one ingredient that’s common to all moisturisers: water. It is true that alcohols, fragrances and other ingredients can irritate your skin, but generally they are in a very low concentration and shouldn’t cause any stinging.

Most people will have experienced the slight burning when pool water or tap water gets up their nose. This is caused by a difference in salt concentrations between the pool or tap water and the water or fluid that exists in the cells of the nose. The cells of the nose rapidly swell causing the nerves to send signals to the brain that something is not right!
