Learning for the pharmacy team
The video above shows how nasal rinses offer non-medicated relief from colds and congestion and explains how they work.
Why practice regular nasal cleansing?
Nasal cleansing is a well-established treatment in many European countries but is a new consumer behaviour in the UK. Currently only 11% of UK consumers say they know a lot about nasal cleansing products, however 87% are open to buying - so there is a clear sales opportunity.1
Nasal hygiene is a worthwhile, easy to use, well tolerated self-care regimen that has been shown to be effective in improving nasal symptoms, reducing the need for medication, and improving quality of life.2
As a daily routine, it can help maintain the body's natural barrier to bacteria, germs, and viruses. Nasal rinses can reduce the number of days with symptoms such as nasal secretion and a blocked nose by up to 42%.3,4
Nasal cleansing products such as BecoCleanse are non-medicated and can be used by customers of all ages. They are also suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
