Xlear Teams Up With Dr. Ferrer BioPharma to Bring a Better User Experience to Nasal Hygiene

Share

Today Xlear announced a new partnership with Dr. Ferrer BioPharma (DFBP), which will make Xlear nasal spray the first nasal hygiene tool to deploy the GentleMist nozzle—the next generation nasal spray technology that research shows achieves better compound dispersion and coverage and a better user experience.

Nasal cleansing studies have found that rinsing the nose and nasal cavity is an important tool for improving health and wellbeing. Numerous clinical and lab studies have found that nasal hygiene is an important adjunct in countering rhinositus, as well as a range of bacterial and viral infections.

New research, published by The European Society of Medicine found that the GentleMist nozzle achieved more uniform and more complete dispersion of nasal sprays into the nose and nasal cavity. The study also found that the new nozzle was gentler and significantly improved the user experience over typical nose spray technologies.

Traditionally nasal sprays have just had a standard pattern where the spray shoots straight up the airway in the direction it is sprayed. The new nozzle is very gentle and the spray is applied in a vortex/whirlpool pattern. This is extremely important and beneficial for Xlear and their customers as it allows Xlear’s mix (saline, xylitol and grapefruit seed extract) to be applied much more effectively and completely to the nose and nasal cavity.

“For more than twenty years, millions of people have been using and benefiting from our nasal spray and we are extremely excited to make this new technology available to them to improve their user experience. We realize that if washing our nose every morning and evening is uncomfortable, or irritating or hurts in even the slightest way we are not going to have people wash their nose enough to where it will make a difference. If it hurt us every time we washed our hands…or brushed our teeth, we wouldn’t be doing that enough either. Just like washing our hands, taking a shower and brushing our teeth, washing our nose is an added layer of protection to keeping us clean and healthy…and breathing better all day,” said Xlear CEO Nate Jones.

Suzano outlines ESG milestone achievements and commitments at second annual ESG call24.6.2022 16:14:00 CEST | Press release

Suzano, the world’s largest hardwood pulp producer, today held its second annual ESG Call centered around its ambition to be a ‘regenerative company for a regenerative society’.
