I have phoned several pharmacies in SA, but it seems that they do not know about the product. Who stocks Vaniqa (Eflornithine HCL 13.9%) in South Africa?

Your best approach would be to contact them at: 3rd Floor, Outspan House Building, 1006, Lenchen Avenue North, Centurion, 0046, or Phone (+27) 012 643 2000, or via email at:
