Bentrio™ – designed to help protect against airborne viruses and allergens.

Bentrio is a novel type of nasal spray that has been developed to help defend against viruses and allergens in the air with a triple mode of action: protective barrier, binding particles, and humidifying.

Bentrio is a novel drug-free nasal spray to reinforce the natural defensive function of the nasal mucosa. Studies show that the nose plays an important role as the body’s first line of defense against airborne infections. Recent findings imply that targeting certain cells in the nose during the early stage of COVID-19 can be an ideal strategy to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2.1

The development of Bentrio has been inspired by nature. It helps strengthen the natural function of the nose in three ways: Bentrio forms a protective layer in the nose to help trap and bind viruses and allergens that are inhaled through the nose, and it humidifies the nasal mucosa.

  • As for airborne viruses, Bentrio is designed to help reduce the risk of infections, including viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19.2
  • As for airborne allergens, Bentrio is intended to prevent and reduce allergic reactions that can be induced by airborne pollen, house dust mites or animal dander.3

Bentrio’s triple mode of action

Bentrio is a gel emulsion that works threefold to strengthen the natural protective shield of the nose against inhaled viruses and allergens.

It forms a film on the nasal mucosa to help protect its natural defense function.

icon for trapping

Thanks to its key ingredient, the nasal spray creates an electrostatic effect that helps trap and bind viruses and allergens.

icon for humidifying

It moisturizes the nasal mucosa which helps support its natural function.

Clinical evidence of Bentrio's protective layer

“The nose plays a crucial role in the body's defense against the inhalation of harmful particles. With the development of Bentrio we are aiming to support this natural defense against inhaled allergens and viruses.”
