Local specialist brand-building distributor, ACDOCO SA is offering yet another pharmaceutical first in South Africa, this time an affordable, locally manufactured, nature-inspired highly-effective decongestant range.


The OBEL® RespiClear® Decongestant range, formulated in line with the latest advances in evidence-based medicine, boasts South Africa’s first steroid-free nebs available over-the- counter (OTC) with no prescription. In addition, the range includes vapour rub and drop formats, also both Schedule 0 and OTC.

The OBEL® RespiClear® Decongestant Nebs, in packs of 15, are steroid-free and boast anti- viral and anti-bacterial properties from their natural aromatic essential oils including menthol, camphor, eucalyptus, cinnamon leaf, pine, lavender, peppermint, moringa oleifera seed and olive, along with caffeine. ACDOCO SA’s Marketing Head, Dana Leibovitz, explains that the active compounds impact on the upper respiratory tract to give effective relief of symptoms and may further work to alleviate mucous build-up. She emphasises that these nebs are the only steroid-free, OTC decongestant nebs available in South Africa.

The OBEL® RespiClear® Decongestant Decongestant Vapor Rub comes in an unique 50ml hygiene pump and is further distinguished by being paraben, petroleum and turpentine-free.

The key essential oils of eucalyptus, menthol and camphor dispense in a non-greasy formulation for quick and effective relief of symptoms associated with bronchitis, flu and colds.

In keeping with the nature-inspired formulations of the range, the OBEL® RespiClear® Decongestant Drops are entirely preservative-free. A combination of essential oils including camphor, peppermint, thyme, eucalyptus and menthol provide not only anti-viral and anti-bacterial effects, but also anti-inflammatory properties.

The OBEL® RespiClear® range will be available at selected leading pharmacies nationwide and can also be bought online here.
