Part Number: CE1000Brand: Cann-Ease
We have now added this Cann-Ease Nasal Moisturiser to our shop, and whilst it's primarily marketed for the nose and nasal passages, the manufacturer states it can be used on the lips, skin and ears.
This Cann-Ease Nasal Moisturiser is a popular product in the USA and is suitable for use in the nasal passages, lips and skin, and oxygen users will find it helpful for any skin irritation caused by the cannulas. There is nothing in the ingredients that is unsafe for breathing or mask and oxygen cannula damage. In fact the product was developed by Dr. Tony E. Jones, Professor at the University of Colorado, who also formulated other branded products such as Blistex® and Clearasil® but this particular product is manufactured primarily for CPAP, BiPAP, non-invasive ventilator and oxygen patients.
The gel is water-based and the 1oz (25g) tube goes a long way and when applied inside the nasal passages it should not leave a sticky residue.
For use in the nasal passages this is especially beneficial to people who use nasal pillows types of mask that go inside the nostrils, oxygen users and also for anyone troubled by the hairs in the nose causing a tickling sensation, to minimise this annoying irritation.
It will also help people who get the 'dreaded itch' on the nose itself which is caused by the air pressure causing the very fine hairs on the skin to move - in which case it is advised to apply the cream liberally without rubbing it right into the skin.
As well as moisturising and healing the skin, this is a safe product that can be applied to dry lips, with no risk that comes with petroleum jelly products products (like Vaseline or Vicks) which can lead to lipoid pneumonia - see this article on our website.... Why Petroleum Jelly (like Vicks and Vaseline should NOT be used with CPAP or Oxygen.

Good to hear the CannEase Cream is working well for you, and the price is mainly due to having to import it, but is well worth it when we hear such good reviews - plus a little does go a long way. We just wish the manufacturer would make bigger sizes.
Had a sample in a previous order and when husband started to develop a sore area and dryness from the mask, this was perfect for instant relief. Have now purchased full size...only a little needed so will last a good while!
Thank goodness for a product that moisturises and stops that annoying itchy nose the moment you turn your machine on. Great to keep your nasal passages moisturised during the day. The gel is clear so not noticeable.
I'm not sure if I've had bad hay-fever (not suffered before) but for a few weeks my nose was dry and itchy causing me to keep sneezing and my eyes to run. I'd had a sample of this gel with a previous order so I tried it on a cotton bud and it really soothed my nose. It's not a miracle cure but I used it each time I had a sneezing fit and it definitely calmed it down. I suspect its not hayfever but the air drying my nose - I use a nasal pillow. I bought a tube but haven't had to use it yet as the free sample sorted the problem. As always it was easy to order and it came quickly. I do agree with others that it's really expensive but you do only need to use a small amount at a time
I purchased this CPAP Moisture Therapy Creamas I heard it was good to line the nostrils to catch the Hay fever pollen in the night.It did work well and I had some good sleep.Would recommend.
Great tip there and especially as it's important to have a safe cream inside the nostrils due to the health risk of anything contain petroleum jelly like vaseline or Vicks. Hope this helps others too.
Yea received fast and great product
I've tried all types of creams and this is the only one to work,seemed pricey but you only need tiny amount as it goes so far. Highly recommend.
So pleased you've finally found a cream that works. It's a shame we can't get bigger tubes, but as you say a little bit really does go a long way 😊
GP said to use Vaseline!!!! Worked wonders on broken skin inside nasal passage. Will continue to use at night time but great product. Think I will need a big tub of it!!
Very relieved you knew the advise of using vaseline is incorrect and can even be dangerous!So pleased the safe Cann-Ease cream is working well for you 😊
A must if your nose is easily irritated. Previously to using this product I had been using a product called Ayr.Its an American Brand that cost about the same as this item but you got 30g. Anyway after a market place dealer on Amazon scammed me I decided I would no longer use that product. So I searched with the main ingredients and I was astounded to find that Hope2Sleep sold a similar product but for £10.99 as at the date of this review you get 100g! Yes 70g more for the same price. I wish i had seen this sooner. It made sense to use this going forward. I suffer from an allergy to latex and silicone which makes my nose sting inside. It can be quite iritating during the night trying to move the mask to stop the itch. I use this product as a barrier inside the nose as i use the mask with the prongs Resmed Liberty. This helps me sleep and with the oxygen therapy it has helped because it doesnt contain petroleum that can react with oxygen and cause burns on the skin. There are no cons to this product. I most certainly will be using this instead of Ayr going forward. The Amazon Scam was 3 for the price of 2 for the Ayr Product. The person sends out just the one on purpose because you are in the UK and they are in the US. You end up with making a messy claim against the seller who keeps on protesting please send a photo of the packaging! Its the smallest envelope on the planet so no more that one could have gotten into that envelope. After doing some research on the seller and presenting this to Amazon they gave me my money back. The seller kept on putting a counter claim in so the refund kept on being taken from my account. As far as I know the seller was struck off the platform. The Amazon helpdesk told me a handy hint, if you dont want to deal with sellers on the marketplace then tick the box to the left hand side to say Amazon only! Because of this bad experience with Amazon I searched the net for the same ingredients and hey presto Hope2Sleep turned up as the first suggestion - a charity who I have used before on several occassions and had no issues with them and would highly recommend!The Amazon seller had no links or connection to Hope2Sleep for clarification. I mention this incase others are conned by marketplace seller so that they come here instead because that is never ever going to happen to buyers here. Thank you.
So very sorry to hear you were scammed by an Amazon seller and thanks for warning others. However, it's great to hear that that you're finding the Cann-Ease is helping you and you will always be safe purchasing from us at the charity, as we treat everyone how we like to be treated ourselves 😊.
This is a really good product which has helped my dry lips. Highly recommended.

We try our best to ship all orders received by us Monday-Friday on the same working day if received before 12 noon, and more often than not orders processed before 3pm will be despatched the same day whenever possible. Weekend or UK bank holiday orders are sent out the next working day. An automated email is sent when products have been despatched so please check your spam box and add us to your safe senders list. Also, if you do not receive an email confirmation, please check that you have typed the correct email address in your account.
All orders are sent via 1st class mail within the UK. Masks and some other more expensive products are always sent via 'signed for' insured delivery and cannot be left in 'safe' places, but there is the option for an alternative shipping address when processing the orders.
Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before making a payment. On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called 'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!
Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.
If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges incurred.
Important for International Orders
We can ship most products internationally, but all prices are in UK British Pounds and if paying by debit or credit card the bank will automatically convert to the current conversation rate. Likewise, if you choose the Paypal option, they will convert into your currency for you as payment is made.
International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we cannot be held responsible for any delays at Customs at your end, or charges that may be added in your own country, such as customs fees and import tax on delivery, which are determined by your country’s import laws and are beyond our control. Therefore, it is the customer’s responsibility to pay these charges, and certain courier companies will not be able to deliver the goods to you without pre-payment of any charges. From our experience, it appears to be randomised as to which parcels incur extra charges, but please know that all accompanying paperwork is filled in correctly when shipping and there is nothing more we can do, as much as we'd like to.If you purchase from us out of the UK or you move to another country after purchasing products, please be aware that the warranty for CPAP machines, masks and parts from the manufacturers are under warranty with the manufacturer based in the UK, so you will be responsible for sending the product back to us and will need to pay postage to get the product back to you after exchange or repair, as the manufacturer will not pay for shipping in any country outside of the UK.
Masks, CPAP machines and and most other products are exempt from a refund or exchange unless faulty due to health and hygiene issues - as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions', and in particular due to the risk of cross contamination as they cannot be re-sold. The Consumer Contracts Regulations 28.(3)(a) confirms exemption as follows:- "exemption in the case of a contract for the supply of sealed goods which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons, if they become unsealed after delivery."
Unopened (sealed) products in their original packing can be returned within 14 days for a refund of the product cost, but the purchaser is to pay the return postage, and we would advise retaining proof of postage. This excludes any faulty goods, for which postage will be reimbursed. A full refund for the price of the product will be issued when received by us, less the original postage charges when the order was sent to you.
Most of the products we sell are eligible for Zero Rated VAT in the UK, and in order to qualify, you should meet the criteria for the following HMRC VAT Declaration:-
We cannot advise on individual cases, but more information can be found on HMRC’s website under notice 701/7 on the following link https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vat-notice-7017-vat-reliefs-for-disabled-people.
If you are not eligible for Zero Rated VAT then please make sure that the VAT Relief box in unticked so that VAT is applied to the order.
If you are purchasing on behalf of someone else who meets the above criteria, you must provide their name and address, and you will be prompted of this during the checkout process.
Customers living outside of the UK do not pay UK VAT charges, so please leave the the VAT Relief box ticked. However, we cannot be held responsible for any additional costs incurred when the products reach your own country.
If you are purchasing with the intention of re-selling any products, you are liable to pay VAT on all products so you must untick the 'zero rate eligibility' box which will add VAT to your order.
Any products that our not eligible for zero rate VAT, will not display the VAT Declaration, and VAT will be added at checkout.
