"Are Arkopharma sticks tested on animals?"

"Does Migrastick contain preservatives or chemical colorants?"
No, Migrastick consists solely of 100% pure, natural essential oils and a compound of vegetable origin.
"Unfortunately, I dropped my bottle of Migrastick on to the tiled floor of my bathroom and then realised that it was made of glass because needless to say, it broke. Why use a glass bottle?"
The Migrastick bottle is indeed made of glass coated with a thin, metallic film. Glass because it is still virtually the only material that retains the properties of essential oils, which are particularly sensitive to interactions. Thus, perfumes are traditionally in glass bottles. Moreover, it is a "green" material, in line with our attitude towards protecting the environment. Finally, the opaque, metallic film makes it possible to protect our light-sensitive natural active ingredients.
"Can children use Migrastick?"
Migrastick is not recommended for children under 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 breast-feeding mothers.
