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.

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.
Just starting using this.It is very light to apply and seems to help with the irritation the mask can cause.
Excellent product for dry nose.
This is a really useful item. I get hayfever, so my nose is quiet often dry and irritated. I was worried that CPAP would make things worse. But this gel really protects your nostrils. I apply it with a cotton bud, is non greasy. and has no smell. It was delivered super quickly, and the personal service is fab!
Fab to hear as we know how concerned you were with nasal irritation 😊
You gave me a little sample of the gel with my first order and I couldn't believe the difference it made to my dry nose lining. It only needs a little spot on your little finger. Needless to say, I couldn't be without it now. Makes wearing the full face CPAP mask a bit easier to bear
So pleased to hear this Barbara 😊
I've found this helps with my skin being less red after removing mask, also it seems to help with stopping my mask from leaking
I bought this to keep my nose moisturized at night since I use a CPAP machine. It is too light and doesn't really moisturize beyond 5 minutes so I'm afraid it's not really worked well for me.
That is a shame Rebecca, as all the other reviews are 4 and 5 stars so far. Unfortunately not everything works for everyone though and we hope you find a solution.

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 and most products cannot be exchanged, unless faulty, due to health and hygiene issues, in accordance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations, (as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions' ) and where you will find our return address, so if you are unsure about any product please contact us BEFORE purchase or BEFORE opening a sealed packet.

This excludes any faulty goods, for which postage will be reimbursed.
