The Xlear Nasal Spray line contains xylitol, purified water, salt, and grapefruit seed extract as a preservative. Using xylitol allows us to have a hyper-osmotic solution which helps pull moisture toward it. This action keeps the nasal passages and sinuses moist for a much longer time than saline alone. Xylitol is the ingredient that sets our products apart from all of the other products. Research has shown that xylitol inhibits the ability of bacteria to adhere to tissue. Without this adhesion it is hard for them to do any damage.
The Xylear Nasal Spray line are all natural products, we do not use chemical antihistamines or decongestants that can leave your airways and sinuses dry. When our sinuses and airways are dry it leaves us vulnerable for increased infections.
