Shake well before use. Shaking disperses the contents of the bottle thoroughly. A slight cloudiness arises from this. It is recommended that the bottle be opened only briefly when in use and the contents carefully dispensed in drops. Do not touch the dropper. Symbioflor II, contains no preservatives and is therefore liable to contamination if not used properly. It is easier to dispense the drops of Symbioflor II if the bottle is stood upright on its top to start with and given a short tap. Tipping the bottle makes the drops flow more slowly. Close the bottle firmly immediately after use. Protect from warmth and sunshine. Keep at room temperature or in the fridge. Opened bottles cannot be exchanged. Slight variation in the fullness of the bottles is inevitable given the contents.
