What is the difference between Becodefence and Becodefence Plus sprays?

Becodefence is clinically proven to reduce allergic rhinitis symptoms, as it blocks allergens that cause the allergic reaction. Becodefence nasal spray works directly where the allergic reaction starts, on the respiratory mucosa of the nose. Becodefence’s patented Nasya™ technology uses a combination of oils and emulsifiers, which give unique transformation properties from gel to liquid for easy dispersion. Upon settling on the nasal mucosa, Becodefence reverts to its original gel-like consistency to form an allergen-impermeable micro-gel barrier. As most airborne allergens come in through the nose, Becodefence is an ideal solution for hay fever and allergic rhinitis.

Becodefence Plus is a drug-free nasal spray with a double protection action to provide fast relief and extra protection against hay fever, dust mite and pet allergies. This product contains a patented combination of oil and emulsifiers, Nasya™ Technology with clinically proven efficacy, which gives unique transformation properties from gel to liquid for easy dispersion. Upon settling on the nasal mucosa, Becodefence Plus reverts to its original gel-like consistency to form an impermeable micro-gel barrier, hence blocking the body’s allergic responses. If the allergic reaction has been triggered, the therapeutic oil in Nasya™ will act as a mast cell stabiliser, thus reducing sensitivity to allergens. Symptoms such as sneezing, blocked/runny nose or itchy/watery eyes will be relieved.

The main difference between the products as highlighted by the writing in bold, is that Allergy Plus gives extra protection against nasal allergens.
