FLO Nozoil - Sesame seed oil 1mL/mL

Australian Made

Overview

Nozoil contains Sesame seed oil BP 1mL/mL

Sesame seed oil contains all three natural forms of Vitamin E (alpha, beta and gamma). Nozoil is available in two pack formats for your convenience (Spray or Drops).

Clinical trials1,2 have shown Nozoil effectively moisturises nasal tissues to prevent dryness and crusting.

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 tissue3. 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

Indications

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

A diagrammatic representation of how Nozoil deflects drying air streams from dry and crusty nasal tissues.

 

Once healed, the tissues can function normally and produce a mucus blanket which shields delicate underlying tissue from drying and crusting.

Always read the label and use only as directed. See your doctor/ healthcare practitioner if symptoms persist
