Sparkling Saline Spray: 21st century carbonated natural nasal relief
Aurena Laboratories AB has introduced a portfolio of patent-protected Sparkling Saline Spray products for nasal relief, available for adoption by brand owners worldwide.
Sparkling Saline Nasal Spray offers a unique drug-free nasal rinse based on saline or seawater, with carbon dioxide microbubbles that reaches deep into the nasal passages to help reduce congestion and clear the nose. These elements have clinically proven benefits and offer a unique and refreshing experience that is valued by consumers.
Based on sustainable Bag-on-Valve (BoV) technology, these sprays offer strong user and marketing benefits.
Sparkling Saline Spray development
Sparkling Saline Nasal Spray has been developed by Aurena Laboratories in collaboration with Clover Hill Healthcare in the USA.
Clover Hill Healthcare first began the search for a quick acting nasal spray product with high efficacy and natural action for daily use or chronic indications in 2012. Within a year, they had identified carbon dioxide (CO2) as the ideal ingredient.
Scientific evidence shows that carbon dioxide prevents histamine release in the nasal cavity, relieves allergic rhinitis/congestions and exerts a destructive effect on biofilm. It has been found to stimulate the trigeminal nerve, enhance extra nasal secretion, lowering the thickness of the mucosa and enhancing mucociliary clearance.
The solution was to use saline solution or seawater as the vehicle to carry dissolved carbon dioxide to the nasal passages and attach to the mucosa. Clover Hill Healthcare has constructed a patent landscape that covers the therapeutic utility of using sparkling saline with and without additives.
Aurena Laboratories is responsible for worldwide manufacturing, from its modern FDA-inspected facility in Karlstad, Sweden, where it has the world’s first production line for Sparkling Saline Nasal Sprays. Aurena’s BoV technology provides for more user-friendly delivery that avoids propellants in the spray and is also more environmentally sustainable.
Sparkling Saline has now been launched in several markets under different brands. These include Ukraine, Jordan, Russia, Australia and New Zealand, Spain and Croatia.
