Salinex® Daily Care products are isotonic solutions, meaning they contain the same concentration of salt as the human body (0.9% Sodium Chloride) and are preservative free. They are gentle enough for daily use, even for the most sensitive noses. Salinex® Daily Care is not a medicated decongestant and there are no rebound effects.
Why use Salinex® seawater and saline products as part of a daily healthcare regimen?
The nose and nasal cavities play an important role in the human body by filtering the air we breathe. To maintain healthy sinus it is recommended to use a nasal spray (saline or seawater) as part of a daily healthcare routine.
Daily nasal irrigation will allow you to naturally keep your nose clean and clear by promoting drainage of the nasal cavity. This is particularly true for young children who cannot blow their nose properly.
Beyond helping to keep your nasal passages clean and moisturized, Salinex® Daily Care products will also help to relieve and reduce cold symptoms such as stuffy nose, nasal secretion and related sinus pressure, if needed.
Where does the seawater from Salinex® products come from?
Salinex® Daily Care nasal sprays contain 100% natural-source seawater from the Gullmar fjord on the west coast of Sweden. Water is collected 32 meters below sea level where the water is very fresh and clean.
After filtration, the undiluted seawater is desalinated, using the latest marine science technologies, preserving trace elements and mineral-rich benefits to an optimum isotonic level of 0.9%.
Using Bag-on-Valve technology, seawater is filled in a bag contained within the can. The final product is then sterilized after filling.
What does isotonic mean? What does hypertonic mean?
Isotonic solutions contain the same concentration of salt as the human body (0.9% Sodium Chloride). They are gentle enough even for the most sensitive noses.
Hypertonic solutions have a concentration of salt greater than what is found in the body.
Will the product remain sterile after opening?
Yes. All Salinex® Daily Care nasal seawater products use the Bag-on-valve technology by which seawater is filled in a bag contained within the can. The one-way valve prevents foreign contaminants such as mucus and foreign bodies from entering the container. This device allows repeated uses, until the expiration date of the product.
Do not use the same bottle for more than one person to avoid cross-contamination.
My baby protests when I try to clean his or her nose. What do you recommend?
Nasal hygiene is important for clearing out secretions and it is normal for your baby to flail and object. For your convenience—and to decrease your baby’s discomfort—use a dropper, such as Salinex® Nasal drops, and make sure that the saline solution is at room temperature. Straighten up your baby after administering nasal drops in the first nostril so that he can catch his breath.
