BEST TIP TO HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF INFECTION
Many of us are being more diligent to prevent the spread of infection. We are wearing masks and sanitizing our hands, but washing your hands is not enough to reduce the risk of infection. Sanitizing the nose is key. Think about it. Most people touch their nose 100 times a day on average, that is 100 possible chances to infect yourself and others. One recommendation is using Nozin® Nasal Sanitizer® antiseptic. It works like hand sanitizer for the nose. It is clinically proven to kill 99.99% of germs and can help protect from risk of infections for up to 12 hours. The active ingredient is 62% alcohol and it also has natural moisturizing oils that make it pleasant to use, and smells like fresh oranges. It is trusted by hospitals in the U.S., and can be bought it without prescription on Amazon or Nozin.com.
