The main active ingredients of NeoRhin Plus are a hypertonic sea salt solution, panthenol, eucalyptus and star anise essential oils. The most common symptoms of rhinitis are swollen nasal mucosa and nasal congestion. The hypertonic sea salt solution aids to reduce the swelling of nasal mucosa through a process called osmosis. The osmotic gradient is the difference in salt concentrations between the nasal spray and the mucosa. Excess water from the nasal mucosa is transported on the gradient to the more concentrated salty environment in the nasal passage forming snot which can be blown out easily. Furthermore, the various marine minerals contained within the sea salt amplify the beneficial effects on the nasal mucosa.
Panthenol soothes the irritation of nasal mucosa and contributes to its renewal.
Refreshing aroma of the eucalyptus and the star anise essential oils secures a pleasant sensation after the spray application. Eucalyptus has antiseptic effects and star anise has antiviral and antibacterial effects. Therefore, both oils aid to shorten and alleviate rhinitis symptoms.
