The nose and the importance of nasal hygiene

The nose and the nasal mucosa have an important role to play in breathing.They moisten and warm inhaled air, preparing it for the body before it enters the lungs.

Cilia (tiny hairs) lining the mucosa filter inhaled air, preventing airborne particles such as dust, microbes, pollution and smoke from entering into the lungs.

When the filtering action of the cilia is insufficient, the cells of the nasal mucosa produce mucus, (a sticky liquid that traps impurities).

By conditioning and filtering the air, the nose acts as the body's first line of defence against external particles that are potentially dangerous to our body. If the nose is too dry and congested, it cannot function properly, increasing the body’s vulnerability to colds, allergic rhinitis and sinusitis.

The health properties of sea water

Sea water is rich in minerals and trace elements.Trace elements contained in sea water are essential for our overall health and wellbeing.

The sea water used in STÉRIMAR™ is collected in deep waters off the coast of Northern France. After collection it is filtered, diluted and microbiologically controlled to produce an aseptic (sterile) sea water solution, without preservatives.

What makes the STÉRIMAR™ range so special?

  •  STÉRIMAR™ is preservative-free
  • STÉRIMAR™ contains minerals and trace elements.
  • The diffuser mounted in the STÉRIMAR™ nozzle produces a micro-diffusion effect, gently delivering a fine spray of droplets.
  • STÉRIMAR™ is manufactured using technology which preserves the quality of the sea water, whilst protecting it from contamination.
  • STÉRIMAR™ has a non-return valve which ensures that the aerosol container does not become contaminated and that the solution remains sterile for the duration of the shelf life.
