Xlear Inc. centers on proactive health—staying healthy through transformational hygiene. Xlear xylitol-based products support that goal.
From the time that Ignaz Semmelweiss first wrote about the need for physicians to wash their hands between patients and the time that it became the standard of care (or mandated because it wasn’t being done) was 150 years. Semmelweiss was ridiculed, laughed at, and discredited, but history proved him correct. Washing our hands and our nose are simple hygienic ways that we can stop the spread of bacteria and viruses.
Nasal hygiene is more important to our health than washing our hands. Washing our hands helps stop the spread of infections, but how often do you really get sick through your hands? Practically zero. You get sick when you touch your hands to your face, your nose, your eyes where bacteria and viruses can easily enter the body.
Wouldn’t it make more sense to wash our nose with something that blocks viral and bacterial adhesion?
The nose is where bacteria and viruses enter the body. Nearly 75% of the visits to primary care physicians in the U.S. are related to upper respiratory issues. We can bring that number down significantly if we start washing our nose.
Let’s transform our hygiene and make it more effective. Wash your nose with Xlear.

Anti-Adherence of Bacteria – 1998
This study found that xylitol blocked adhesion of bacteria to epithelial cells, showing that xylitol inhibits bacteria from sticking to tissue, which allows the body to wash them away.

Airway Study – 2015
In a 2015 presentation, Dr. Nsouli shared his findings of a study which showed that a nasal spray with xylitol increased peak airflow 36% more than saline alone and measurably increased participants’ quality of life.

High Viral Load in the Nose – Mar. 2020
In this correspondence, researchers shared their research which showed that the nose has the highest viral load of SARS-CoV-2 than elsewhere in the body when infected with the virus.
Mapping How SARS-CoV-2 Infects the Body – May, 2020
In this study done at UNC Chapel Hill, researchers found that the SARS-CoV-2 virus first infects the body through the nose, establishes itself there, and then progresses into the airway and lungs.
