Nozin Nasal Sanitizer Antiseptic
Following its company mission to "enhance life through innovative health technologies,” Global Life Technologies Corp. of Chevy Chase, Maryland, currently develops, markets, and sells health care products to healthcare professionals as well as consumers. These products are specially formulated and clinically proven to promote wellness and help protect against infection-causing microbes. Global Life Technologies’ flagship product, Nozin Nasal Sanitizer antiseptic, is used to improve hygiene at the nose, as needed, on a daily basis. Nozin Nasal Sanitizer has been proven to kill up to 99.99 percent of a broad spectrum of pathogenic organisms, including Staphylococcus aureus.
After considering the preventive health benefits of hand hygiene, Global Life Technologies’ research and development team decided to apply that same line of thinking to the human nose. The front of the nose (known as the “vestibule”) serves as a collecting point and breeding ground for bacteria often acquired from hands. The nose can also serve as a source to re-contaminate hands that have been disinfected. This colonization of bacteria in the nose is called nasal carriage and is a primary concern in infection control. Nasal carriers of Staphylococcus aureus are at increased risk of initiating infections in themselves and others. Nozin acts like something of a “nasal shield” that helps protect the consumer from bacteria that can cause infection.
