Los Angeles, California (The Hollywood Times) 4/5/2021– As we enter the Spring allergy season we are getting vaccines for COVID-19, for travel or to protect from other airborne allergens and pollutants, NasalGuard ® is the ‘invisible mask’ worn under your mask that will make life safer for you and your loved ones. NasalGuard ® Airborne Particle Blocker ® is a drug-free electrostatic topical nasal gel that prevents airborne particles from entering the nose. The product is drug-free and safe for children, the elderly, pregnant or nursing women, and those concerned about potential drug interactions with other medications. The Hollywood Times spoke with Kanika Wahi, Co-Founder and Co-Inventor of NasalGuard®.
Tell us about your background and what led you to reformulate NasalGuard and your relationship with the founder of Trutek?
My background is in biomedical engineering and I have been fortunate enough to witness my father, the Co-Founder of Trutek, originally create NasalGuard as a drug-free alternative option to help my sister avoid prescription allergy medications. We have successfully advanced the technology of Nasalguard which was originally focused on blocking allergens from entering the nose for preventing allergy symptoms. This breakthrough reformulation provides a greater electrostatic blocking effect that is effective against a much wider spectrum of sub-microscopic indoor and outdoor contaminants including mold, virus-sized particles, pollution, pollen, and pet dander.
NasalGuard® blocks allergens, virus-sized particles, mold, and dust. Tell us about NasalGuard and why people use it and for what reasons?
People use NasalGuard to guard themselves against everyday pollution, allergens, dust mites, and virus-sized particles. They use it because it’s portable, drug-free, invisible, and safe for the whole family.
How does it actually work and how do people apply it?
It works like a magnet. Patented NasalGuard gel uses a cationic (positively charged) polymer that creates a safe electrostatic field around the nasal passages that traps oppositely charged particles and repels similarly charged particles to reduce inhalation of most harmful airborne particles before they enter your body. NasalGuard gel provides an electrostatic blocking effect that is effective against a wide spectrum of sub-microscopic indoor and outdoor contaminants including smoke, mold, pollen, pet dander, pollution, and virus-sized particles. You simply apply a pin-sized drop of the preventative gel around the nostrils and above the upper lip, allow it to dry and it gives you protection for up to 6 hours.
What makes this product different from other products?
NasalGuard is the only drug-free clear topical gel that is designed for the nose with patented ionic particle blocking technology. It is not only innovative but portable and safe for children, pregnant women, and the entire family.
Will your product replace other allergy medicines?
Many people have found that after continuous NasalGuard use, they no longer have to use their allergy medications that are typically drug products. It is safe to use NasalGuard in conjunction with other allergy medicines as there are no known interactions. You can prevent allergy symptoms more effectively through multiple layers of protection including NasalGuard gel.
Spring is here and travel is opening up, how is NasalGuard® an invisible mask? Any plans on partnering with airlines and hotels in 2021?
During these uncertain times, NasalGuard® is a unique product that can help people protect themselves from harmful airborne particles! and wear this invisible mask under your mask. This extra protective measure helps block contaminants and can block unpleasant odors when wearing a mask. NasalGuard protects against virtually all types of airborne contaminants in any location. Users can count on it to work in their homes, airplanes, subways, offices, hospitals, and other environments where airborne particles may present a health hazard. Yes, we are currently looking for leads to partner with airlines, cruises, and hotels in 2021.
You have sold over 18 million units worldwide with no reports of any adverse effects. This indeed speaks volumes about your product. What do you want people to know about NasalGuard®?
The nose is the main gateway for airborne particles like allergens, dust, viruses, pollutants to enter the body and cause symptoms. NasalGuard gives you next-level protection against the inhalation of the pesky particles altogether, without side effects. It was specifically developed as an extra layer of protection for your nose that is safe for the whole family.
NasalGuard technology is a division of Trutek. Tell us about Trutek and what your plans for NASALGUARD are in 2021?
Trutek Corp., the owner of the brand name NasalGuard, is a privately-held intellectual property and product development company that has been manufacturing and marketing patented NasalGuard® globally since 1995.
We are excited to share that we have new products in the pipeline that are expected to launch before the end of 2021.
