We have made it our mission to support you and your loved ones when suffering from a blocked nose due to rhinitis or sinusitis – with nasal decongestant products that unblock your nose and enable you to breathe easier.
We understand those suffering from a blocked nose.
We’ve all had the experience: when you have rhinitis, you suffer from a blocked nose and have a general feeling of discomfort. Not only do you personally suffer from rhinitis symptoms, your workplace and colleagues, as well as your family or friends, also suffer from you not being there for them or not feeling well.
A stuffy nose can also hinder your sports and leisure-time activities, memorable occasions with your loved ones and other special events. The chore of having to constantly blow your nose in order to breathe easier can also be quite embarrassing.
We offer iliadin® decongestant nose products and saline solutions.
To help you decongest your nose fast² and to support easier breathing, there’s iliadin®. Our Metered Nose Spray is suitable for adults and children from six years of age. iliadin® Metered Nose Spray helps you to recover up to 2 days sooner¹* from a blocked nose – while our saline solution is ideal for moisturising your nose and keeping it clean.
The iliadin® range also has products suitable for children and for infants from one month of age. These can help your little ones breathe easier.
For more information, please speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
DID YOU KNOW?
The active ingredient in all iliadin® decongestant products is Oxymetazoline Hydrochloride. This ingredient has been proven to be effective in decongesting the nose. Studies also show that the effects are long-lasting2 and that it is well tolerated by most users. Oxymetazoline works so well that it was used by NASA to keep their astronauts breathing freely, and was on board during the Apollo mission to the moon!
