Reducing Risk: NanoBio® Protect Nasal Antiseptic Now Available on Amazon

Alcohol-Free Solution is Safe, Comfortable to Use, and Easy to Apply with a Cotton Swab

ANN ARBOR, Mich., (May 22, 2020) – BlueWillow Biologics®, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, today announced the availability of NanoBio® Protect on Amazon. NanoBio Protect is an alcohol-free antiseptic solution that is easily applied with a cotton swab to the skin inside and around the nose to kill 99.99% of germs and reduce the risk of infection.

NanoBio Protect should be used every 4–8 hours as needed in conjunction with other common protective measures, including handwashing, wearing a mask and social distancing. It is non-irritating, fragrance-free and leaves no residue after application. NanoBio Protect is available for $24.95 per bottle; each bottle contains at least 40 applications.

“As restrictions lift across the country, safety must be the top priority. Employing protective measures that drastically reduce the risk of infection is vital,” said David Peralta, CEO of  BlueWillow Biologics. “People are nervous and appropriately concerned. We want to help. NanoBio Protect is safe, easy to use and reduces the risk of infection. With NanoBio Protect now available on Amazon, consumers can continue to move towards normalcy with greater confidence.”

The active ingredient in NanoBio Protect is benzalkonium chloride (BZK), an FDA-approved topical antiseptic that has been used in over-the-counter products for more than 75 years. NanoBio Protect’s patented technology increases the effectiveness of BZK while delivering a solution that is moisturizing, comfortable to use and not systemically absorbed into the bloodstream. NanoBio Protect is alcohol-free, and therefore does not dry out skin, which could lead to irritation and cracking that can allow germs to enter.

NanoBio Protect was developed by BlueWillow Biologics, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The product is manufactured in the United States and can be purchased in single units on Amazon and case quantities via BlueWillow’s website.
