A-CerumenA-Cerumen
 

The ear is a complex organ consisting of three distinct compartments: the external, middle and inner ear, which enables a person to hear. The external auditory canal linking the outer ear to the ear drum is lined with sebaceous glands which secrete cerumen, a very greasy waxy substance that is yellow in color.


What is the purpose of cerumen?
Cerumen protects the ear from infection, dust and foreign bodies. It controls the bacteria naturally present on the surface of the skin in the external auditory canal. Finally, it lubricates the ear drum which would otherwise become hard and rigid, without the fine tuning which enables it to transmit sound.

Why is hygiene so important for the ears?
Under normal circumstances, cerumen moves naturally towards the outside of the external auditory canal thanks to the jaw movements that occur when chewing. Any malfunction in this process leads to a build-up of cerumen. The resultant plug of wax prevents the ear from functioning properly, leading to loss of hearing, buzzing in the ears, vertigo etc.


By using gentle ear hygiene products, the external auditory canal can be kept clean, preventing the build-up of wax.

What is A-Cerumen?
A-Cerumen is a gentle ear hygiene product containing surface-active agents. A-Cerumen is recommended for children over the age of 30 months and for adults:
Used regularly, it helps to eliminate any cerumen residue and prevents the build-up of wax,
It also dissolves plugs of wax.

BEFORE USING IN BABIES AND INFANTS, ASK YOUR DOCTOR FOR ADVICE.
