Try Flo Nozoil for dry, crusty nasal tissue.
Flo Nozoil is a nasal moisturiser containing sesame seed oil BP 1mL/mL to help relieve nasal dryness. Sesame seed oil contains all three natural forms of Vitamin E (alpha, beta and gamma). Nozoil is available in two dose administrations forms (a spray or dropper).
Clinical trials1,2 have shown Flo Nozoil to effectively relieve dry and crusting nasal tissue. The nose may become dry and irritated for a number of reasons such as after a cold, in air conditioned environments, on planes or after nasal surgery.
Flo Nozoil helps to shield damaged dry and crusty tissue from the drying effect of air1,2 and also helps to reduce the effects of inflammation which can occur in nasal tissue.3 Flo Nozoil does not evaporate quickly from the nasal tissues. Its moisturising effects can therefore last longer and this can assist in providing good relief from symptoms of dryness and crusting.4
Flo Nozoil is indicated for the temporary relief of dry and crusting nasal tissue. Nasal tissue may become dry and irritated (sometimes causing nose bleeds) from any of the following:
- During and after a common cold
- While using medical devices which deliver air into the nasal passages
- While using medicated nasal medications
- In low humidity environments, e.g. air-conditioning, aircraft cabins
- While using certain medications – e.g. the treatment of acne
- In older people – as a result of natural changes to the nasal tissues and also to shape of the inside of the nose.
Always read the label. Use as directed. Consult your healthcare practitioner if symptoms persist.
