  • Why was the older Acta Plus Cough Syrup discontinued?

    Safety and efficacy of our products is our No. 1 priority. As such, we source the raw materials used in Vicks’ products, to meet stringent and well-established regulations. One of the key ingredients in Vicks Acta Plus cough syrup is no longer available.

    Hence, we have introduced the new Vicks Acta Plus Wet + Dry Cough Syrup with 7 well-established and scientifically proven active ingredients to provide relief from wet and dry cough. We have successfully launched the same product in Australia as well.

  • How is Vicks Acta Plus Wet + Dry Cough Syrup different from the previous Vicks Acta Plus Cough syrup? How does the new product provide symptom relief?
