Yes and no, but mostly--no. Comparing Intake to traditional nasal strips is a little bit like comparing a racehorse to a miniature pony: yes, they’re both horses, but you’re more likely to win the Kentucky Derby riding Secretariat than you are riding Tiny James from the petting zoo. Here’s how Intake has solved the areas where traditional nasal strips fall short:
- Intake is meant for more than just congestion relief, so we’ve designed it to stay stuck no matter what. Sweat, water, mud, snot, tears (it’s okay, no judgement)--Intake is with you through it all.
- Intake’s design holds your nasal passages open far wider than disposable nasal strips. This is because your nostrils are fixed against a rigid plastic band, rather than the skin on the bridge of your nose. This also makes Intake more comfortable--because it’s held in place by two small adhesive magnets, there’s nothing pulling on your skin.
- Intake is reusable, and because our adhesive magnets come as a customizable subscription service, you never have to worry about running out. Plus, everything comes in a specially designed carrying case, which makes it all a little bit easier.
