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.

We wish we had found this earlier, it would have made a great difference as my husband suffered a great deal with the oxygen until we found this cream.
Pleased you've finally found a solution to help 😊
I found this product very helpful, easy to apply in the nose, I used my little finger. Used a tiny amount to begin with, in case of reaction, but I have had no problems, it’s very soothing and has overcome the crustiness. Also good on dry lips at night. Highly recommended.
The product is not as good as I had hoped. I apply it and it does not appear to moisturise my nose at all.
That is a shame to hear as most reviews are 4 or 5 stars for the CannEase, but we appreciate not everything works for everyone. Perhaps try applying a little more of the cream, but if that fails see if the chemist has something that works better for you (just be sure there's no petroleum jelly in the ingredients).
Ordered due to the CPAP moisture therapy cream being unavailable. I get very sore (which often turns to infection) inside of one nostril in particular, so didn't know what to expect with this product. But I've been pleasantly surprised! It works as well as the product I was using before, if not slightly better.
That's great to hear Michelle as it was hard finding an alternative for the original moisture cream.
Excellent product I was always having nose bleeds first thing in the morning(not so good when taking warfarin) but since using this product when I blow my nose in the morning no more nose bleeds! A very little of this product goes a long way, definitely well worth the money. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is having problems with dry nasal passageways, as a side note delivery is always amazing super fast, I do not have words to describe Kath she always has the correct answer to any problems you may have 5 star rating all round!
Great to hear the cream has stopped the nosebleeds and will pass on your compliment to Kath, as she does work hard to help everyone 😊
Husband has been finding it very good. Would recommend it.
Better than previous product (nasal cream). Would definitely re-order and recommend
After receiving a trial sachet of this gel with a previous order, I was pleased with the result and so I ordered the full sized product. Really easy to apply and stops my nasal passages from drying out. Would highly recommend.
This item, along with others, arrived speedily and well packed. It is gentle on the skin and relieves dryness.

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. International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we cannot be held responsible for any charges that may be added in your own country.
Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase. 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.
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.

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.
