Oscillococcinum Earns Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal of Approval

Newtown Square, Pa., Aug. 2013—PTPA Media, North America’s largest volunteer parenting testing community, recently recognized Oscillococcinum’s value in helping families nip flu-like symptoms that can rapidly spread throughout the household in the bud. Oscillococcinum, made by homeopathic world leader Boiron, was awarded the Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Seal of Approval. This seal helps families find brands that enhance and simplify their lives.

To be awarded the PTPA seal, products must be evaluated by independent parent volunteers. One parent evaluator for Oscillococcinum noted, “No one likes getting sick, but when you’ve got little ones to care for, it’s even more important to take care of yourself. Thank goodness it’s easy to take Oscillo at the first sign of symptoms and reduce the severity and duration so I can get back to my family!”

For more than 75 years, this French favorite, supported by clinical studies, has offered those suffering from fatigue, headache, fever, chills, body aches and pain a choice to traditional medications. Now U.S. moms are discovering it is one of the few over-the-counter drugs readily available on store shelves labeled for children as young as 2 years of age. Parents like that it works naturally without causing drowsiness, and it does not interact with other medications, herbs, vitamins, etc. Additionally, Oscillococcinum’s quick-dissolving pellets taste sweet and require no water, making it easier to give to children.

“At PTPA Media, we are proud to play a role in certifying innovative products that families can trust,” says Sharon Vinderine, CEO and founder of PTPA Media Inc., which has more than 60,000 parent evaluators. “When consumers search for our Seal of Approval on product packaging and websites, they are essentially searching for validation from their peers. Their peers will have objectively tested and approved these products based on their performance in a real life environment. That type of resource for families is priceless.”
