"Are Arkopharma sticks tested on animals?"
No, none of our cosmetic products are tested on animals any more because modern research methods enable us to avoid recourse to such procedures.
"Can children use Migrastick?"
Migrastick is not recommended for children less than 12 years old. Migrastick contains essential oil of peppermint, which is rich in menthol. Being a neurostimulant, menthol, in large quantities, can lower the threshold for triggering attacks in epileptics and children subject to convulsions. As a precaution, this restriction on use has been extended to all children, to pregnant women and to nursing mothers.
"Can pregnant women and nursing mothers use Migrastick?"
As a precaution, we prefer to advise against use of this product by pregnant women or nursing mothers.
