Osmolax Relief Children’s 35 Doses 298g
OsmoLax restores the body’s natural rhythm. It is virtually unabsorbed so it remains in the bowel and directs water into the stool. This lubricates and softens, as well as bulks the stool which stimulates the urge to go to the toilet.
The result is a natural and comfortable bowel movement.
The active ingredient in OsmoLax is called macrogol 3350. Macrogol is considered to be the ‘gold standard’ for the treatment of constipation
