Many sufferers of sinusitis, sinus congestion and hay fever often resort to the use of a nasal spray to decongest the nose helping to ease breathing. Some of these nasal sprays are steroidal in nature, or contain anti-histamines, and are not without side effects.
CleanWash Saline Nasal Mist is a natural nasal mist spray designed to provide relief of the sinuses from airborne irritants such as pollen, allergens, pollutants and fungal spores. CleanWash spray contains a natural compound, Chitosan, which is derived from the shells of shrimps and crabs. Chitosan, a complex sugar, is the second most abundant polysaccharide after cellulose which is found in plants.
Discovered in the 1800’s, Chitosan has some remarkable properties. It is completely natural, biodegradable and hypoallergenic. Chitosan also shows powerful antibacterial and antifungal properties and when applied to wounds effectively stops bleeding.
Chitosan has been used in natural supplements for weight loss because it binds fats onto its chemical structure preventing their deposition onto the fat cells. Chitosan is also used as a drug carrier for delivery via nasal sprays, and also in toothpastes, mouthwashes and cosmetics. Chitosan is also used in the wine making industry and in agriculture for seed treatment.
How does CleanWash Saline Nasal Mist work?
Chitosan in the nasal mist is suspended in a saline solution that is compatible with the nasal lining. This nasal spray also contains xylitol and grapefruit seed extract. The chitosan suspended in the saline solution forms an invisible film which soothes the nasal lining preventing the production of excess mucus. Xylitol is added to the formulation because not only does it have mild antibacterial properties; xylitol also is an excellent soothing long chain carbohydrate molecule and has been found to have excellent moisture-holding properties which helps to treat dry nasal passages. Grapefruit seed extract has been studied extensively and found to possess strong antibacterial properties helping to prevent infections and to treat nasal and sinus infections.
CleanWash saline nasal spray is suitable for those:
- who suffer from hay fever symptoms including a runny nose
- suffering from sinusitis and sinus congestion
- who suffer from dry nasal passages such as when flying
- wishing to protect against airborne infections from close proximity such as when using public transport.
CleanWash Saline Nasal Mist is safe to use on a daily basis, has no known side effects and is non-addictive.
