First Defence: Attack a cold as soon as it starts!

Introducing Vicks First Defence, a breakthrough in the war against the common cold. While most cold medicines suppress your symptoms, Vicks First Defence attacks colds at their source, removing the virus before it has a chance to develop.

When should I use First Defence?

Use when you feel at risk of catching a cold, or at the "early signs" of a cold (sniffling, sore throat, etc.). For best results, continue to use for 2 days after symptoms subside.

How does First Defence work?

First Defence nasal spray targets the area deep inside the nasal cavity where the cold virus first takes hold and multiplies.

First Defence is a Micro-Gel nasal spray enhanced with plant extracts. It works by disarming cold causing germs and helping your body to remove them naturally.

Clinically proven

Vicks First Defence is clinically proven to significantly reduce the incidence of cold. In a survey* conducted amongst consumers in the United Kingdom, over 88 percent claimed that they did not catch a cold, or their cold was less severe than usual after using the product.
