I am advertising a topical skin cream and it is considered schedule 0 or unscheduled in my country.
This product isn't available for purchase online, only in stores.
We cannot register for for pharmacy certification as its not available in my country.

How can I go about this without going against the healthcare policies?

Thank you

You will probably have problems with disapproval of your ads, so the best thing to do would probably be to give Google a call, explain the situation and they may be able to approve the ads for you when and if you have issues.

 

Kind Regards,

Thanks, yes, I've been preparing a couple of questions and scenarios to run past them to see if there are some workarounds.

According to our local marketing codes this cream can be advertised to the public so I'm hoping they will give me the green light.

 

Thanks for your help,

Desiree

@Desiree R;

Simple answer: you cannot, unless you are a pharmaceutical company;

Sorry;

My client is a pharmaceutical company, but the online application for pharmaceuticals is not available in South Africa.

In your opinion would that cause problems?
