100% NATURAL SEAWATER
All products in the range of the MARIMER spray are made using quality seawater rich in dietary minerals such as copper, zinc, and manganese, known for their therapeutic properties in the treatment of respiratory infections. This pure seawater is taken from the bay of Mont Saint Michel in Saint-Malo, France, reputed for its high tides of more than 15 meters which, due to violent currents, provide high levels of water oxygenation and an abundance of minerals.
All of the benefits of this seawater, rich in mineral salts, are preserved as micro-filtration is used for sterilization. This is a mechanical principle that eliminates all impurities while preserving the properties and trace elements of the seawater.
ISOTONIC VERSUS HYPERTONIC
Our body’s cells have a natural salt concentration of 0.9%. An isotonic solution will have the same concentration. A hypertonic solution has a salt concentration higher than that of our cells (2.2% for MARIMER solution). Applying it will have an osmotic effect. Evidence shows that cells will liberate water and more easily discharge mucus that has accumulated on the surface of the nasal mucosa. Hence, the hypertonic solution is only prescribed for a blocked nose, whilst isotonic solution may be used daily for preventive nasal hygiene.
