Sea water@£60/l at Amazon


Amazon sells sea water as their own brand of decongestant at £6 for 100ml bottle !!!

Snake oil salesmen are a live and some are doing very well.

This reminds me I need to find a better veterinary. Each time I take my dog to him he tries to sell me herbal remedies or homoeopathic medicines to help my dog. Cost about £20 to £30 each month. I told him I wanted medicines that contain real drugs. He said it works but when I asked what the active ingredient was he said it did not contain one !!!. I assume he is trying to get an on going cash flow going by mugging his gullible customers.

Borosilicate glass:
Good temperature resistance and good thermal shock resistance but finite.
For normal, standard service typically 200-230°C, for short-term (minutes) service max 400°C
Maximum thermal shock resistance is 160°C

Is supposed to mean that although its only sea water with nothing added its worth paying £6 for a 100ml bottle of it because if nothing else the micro plastic is filtered out LOL

You have to have a special word so that people are not lulled into thinking they can simply take a plastic bucket to the beach.

Sad really.

I use that same brand (Stérimar is not Amazon) a few times a year.
Sometimes on doctor's orders and sometimes on my own (allergies).

I wouldnt call that snake oil though alone it's never going to "cure" anything.
Is it better than snorting tap water ? I dont know. Some of their selling arguments are scientifically silly but others... well, the jury's still out.
