Sterimar Overview

In the early 1970s, a French man, François Herlemont, with a passion for waterskiing and a problematic nose made an interesting observation. After spending a week waterskiing by the French coast, and lots of time being dunked in the sea, he found that his nasal congestion had cleared. There was only one explanation - it had to be all the sea water that had gone up his nose.

He went straight to his laboratory and set about developing a way of delivering the health benefits of sea water straight to the nose as a gentle mist: a sea water nasal spray called STÉRIMAR

Very quickly, STÉRIMAR was freeing noses all over France. Today, it's used in over 80 countries around the world.

1. How often should I use STÉRIMAR?

We recommend using STÉRIMAR Isotonic two to six times a day (or more) in each nostril for as long as you need it or as long as and as often as your doctor recommends.

2. How long do I have to wait to for STÉRIMAR to work?

You should feel an improvement within a few seconds after proper use.

3. Can STÉRIMAR be used with other medication?

Yes. STÉRIMAR is drug-free and doesn't contain preservatives so there is no risk of interaction with any other medication. Check with your health care professional. 

4. Am I likely to experience any irritation from using STÉRIMAR?

You should not. STÉRIMAR Isotonic is a purified seawater solution with the same concentration of salts as the cells in your body.

As such, it cannot harm your nose and can help protect it from irritation.

5. Can I use STÉRIMAR if I am pregnant, diabetic, or suffer from high blood pressure?

Yes. STÉRIMAR is completely safe to use with these conditions. Check with your health care professional.

6. Can I use STERIMAR for my three-year-old?

Yes. STÉRIMAR Isotonic is suitable for the whole family, even babies from three months.

7. Is the nozzle safe to use for my baby?

Yes. The special STÉRIMAR nozzle is shaped to fit any size of nostril. It can be used as safely for the tiny nostrils of a baby as for those of an adult.
The nozzle allows easy adjustment of pressure for safe and gentle use in all positions.

8. How long will STÉRIMAR keep for?

Make sure to wash nozzle after each use. STÉRIMAR products can be kept for a maximum of three years after manufacture or until all solution has been used. The expiry date can be found on the can and carton.

Each dose of STÉRIMAR delivered is aseptic. The valve on top of the can prevents air from entering.

Also, because the solution is kept in a sterilised pouch it never comes into contact with either the aluminium can or the non-flammable nitrogen gas within.

9. Why is it important to clean the nozzle after each use?

You must clean the nozzle in soapy water to remove any microorganisms left after use to help avoid any cross-contamination

10. What does micro-diffusion mean?

The unique STÉRIMAR micro-diffusion system produces a fine spray of seawater. As the droplets produced by STÉRIMAR are micro fine, they remain in contact with the walls of the nasal passages for longer, making STÉRIMAR even more effective.
