FAQS - BECODEFENCE PLUS

WHAT IS BECODEFENCE PLUS?

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.

HOW DO I USE BECODEFENCE PLUS?

Apply 1 to 2 sprays into each nostril, 2 to 3 times a day (works up to 6 hours). Children of 12 years and below should use Becodefence Kids and only under adult supervision. Always blow nose thoroughly before each application.

During the first hour of use, you may experience a slightly blocked nose. This sensation is transient. It will subside quickly and disappear with subsequent use. You may also feel some form of irritation when Becodefence Plus is applied, which will subside quickly. If you experience any serious discomfort after application of Becodefence Plus, discontinue using and consult your physician. If concur-rent use of another nasal spray is required, Becodefence Plus should be re-applied afterwards in order to continue the impermeable barrier protection. Avoid contact with open wounds.
