Gerolymatos announces Breathe Again is top seller in U.S.
NEW YORK Earlier this year, Gerolymatos introduced its European nasal saline spray, Breathe Again with Sinomarin, to the United States, where it has become a top seller, the company announced in a press release Monday. According to Information Resources data as provided by Gerolymatos, Breathe Again was the leading saline nasal spray in the drug stores for the month of October.
Breathe Again with SinoMarin nasal spray is harvested from pure tidal seawater off France’s Atlantic coast, and then filtered and mixed with purified water in a ratio that closely mirrors the body’s interstitial fluid. It is an all natural hypertonic saline solution that helps to clean, clear and moisturize nasal passages.
Breathe Again is now available at Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Rite Aid and other major drug and supermarket retailers in both adult and pediatric formulas. The suggested retail price is $9.99.
