How does Sinomarin work?
Sinomarin® is a 100% natural hypertonic seawater solution
that contains 2.3% salt (NaCl) i.e. 23g/l. Since the
natural tonicity of nasal tissues is 0.9%, this difference
causes a natural osmotic effect. Osmosis is a natural
process that occurs in all living cells. The water flows
by diffusion from areas of low salt concentration, to
areas with high salt concentrations through a semipermeable membrane, until the tonicity of both sides
of the membrane is equalized.
The hypertonic solution thus, in contact with the nasal
mucosa, will act by drawing-out excess water from the
mucous membranes, thus reducing the space the swollen
tissues occupy in the nasal cavities in addition to
diluting the viscous, sticky mucous that has accumulated.
Moreover, Sinomarin® helps cleanse the nasal cavities,
flushing out dust, debris, pollutants, allergens, germs
and excess mucus from the nose and sinuses which can lead
to sinonasal blockage and infection.
The salt (NaCl) content in the hypertonic solution is
responsible the osmotic effect. Because Sinomarin®
consists of 70% seawater; it preserves the sea’s trace
elements and mineral salts that are responsible for
actions such as anti-septic, anti-inflammatory,
anti-allergic, etc. These trace elements are not present
in physiological saline solutions.
In addition to its osmotic effect, it has been
demonstrated scientifically that, the tiny hair-like
projections called cilia which are responsible for moving
mucous and dirt particles away from the nose, and are
found to dysfunction under certain conditions, improve
with hypertonic solutions such as is Sinomarin®. Thus, the
natural “cleansing” mechanism of the nose is enhanced.
Thus, Sinomarin® helps decongest & clean blocked noses
Moreover, seawater solutions such as Sinomarin® will help
hydrate dry nasal cavities.
It can be said the Sinomarin® has a triple system of
- due to the osmosis effect Sinomarin®
draws-out excess water, reducing the edema of the nasal
mucosa and provides faster and more effective decongestion
of the nasal cavity.
- Sinomarin® contains sea water minerals
and trace elements that protect from nasal infections,
help reduce nasal congestion and have antiseptic and
- the spray’s delicate mist helps in cleaning
the nasal cavity from excess mucous, crusts, dust, debris,
pollutants, allergens, germs in a natural way;
