Stingose for Your Stocking

Stingose for Your Stocking

It’s great to stuff Christmas stockings with everything you need for a fun, relaxed and enjoyable summer. That’s why you need Stingose in your stocking!

Stingose minimises pain and itchiness from an insect attack or jellyfish sting. We know nothing kills summer fun faster than an itchy sea lice attack, nasty wasp sting, or unbearable mozzie bite – so make sure the whole family has Stingose at the ready, so you can kill the pain, not the fun.

This wee bottle of magic works on just about any annoying things you might come across on your next beach trip: from ants and bees, to wasps, sandflies, sea lice, vines, nettles, mozzies and jellyfish.

Stingose provides fast, effective pain relief within minutes; minimises itching, swelling, blistering and inflammation; and cleans the skin from sunscreen and oils, which allows the medication to work faster.* In other words – no more tears from the kids, next time a stinger strikes!

Stingose targets the source of the reaction by breaking down the venom and toxins to reduce the allergic response. It has been trialled and shown to provide complete pain relief in 99.94% of cases.*

So make sure you have Stingose in all your Christmas stockings this year, and have really happy holidays – uninterrupted by itches, scratches and stings!

Available as a spray or gel from pharmacies and supermarkets nationwide, RRP $14.99.


*A trial (published in The Medical Journal of Australia) monitored the use of Stingose in 1003 actual emergency conditions. Of the cases, Stingose was reported as completely successful in 997 and partially successful in 6. Reference: Henderson. D, Easton, R G. Stingose. A new and effective treatment for bites and stings.
