Otrivin Seawater with Eucalyptus

During a cold the inflammatory process results in the swelling of the nasal mucosa, blocked nose and increased mucus production. The *Hypertonic seawater creates a pressure difference between the solution and the mucous membrane (osmotic effect), helping to reduce the swelling of the nasal passages. The product also softens and loosens the excess mucus by the mechanical action of the spray on the nasal cavities helping to remove bacteria and viruses from the nose. The *Hypertonic seawater solutions differ from isotonic sea water solutions as the sea salt concentration is optimized at 2.2% to effectively relieve nasal congestion. This concentration also ensures that the solution is gentle enough to be compatible with the nasal mucosa.
