What is the difference between Cerumol and Cerumol Extra Virgin Olive Oil Ear Drops?

Cerumol has a unique oil based formulation which penetrates in between the wax and ear canal, lubricating and loosening the wax. Cerumol Extra Virgin Olive Oil Ear Drops work in a similar way, but offer a natural way to gently soften and remove ear wax. Different formulations suit different people as no two ears are the same!

What sort of olive oil is used in Cerumol Extra Virgin Olive Oil Ear Drops?

Cerumol Extra Virgin Olive Oil Ear Drops are a medicinal grade olive oil (Extra Virgin Olive Oil Ph.Eur.100% v/v) specified for use in ear drops. The olive oil used has not been chemically processed or refined and so (unlike most other olive oil products on the market) is of the highest standard.

How does olive oil help with ear wax?

Olive oil is scientifically proven to disperse ear wax and therefore helps its easy removal. The wax either runs out of its own accord or becomes more accessible for professional removal by syringing. The use of olive oil to soften ear wax before syringing is recommended by many healthcare professionals.
