What is Earol Swim?
Earol Swim is designed to help to prevent water from becoming trapped in your ears. One or two simple sprays in the ear is all you need to create a water-resistant barrier that helps to prevent infection. Ideal for those who enjoy swimming or want to protect against ear infections.
What is swimmer’s ear?
Swimmer’s ear is a kind of outer ear infection which happens when water gets trapped inside your ear. The water creates a moist environment where bacteria can thrive, causing ear infections. As the name may suggest, swimmer’s ear is common in people who are frequent swimmers, but can be prevented by avoiding getting water into your ears.
How will this product help to prevent ear infections?
Earol Swim uses olive oil and tea tree oil to coat the inside of your ears, creating an invisible and water-resistant barrier that helps to prevent water getting trapped in the ear. These two active ingredients are well known for their anti-viral and anti-fungal properties, helping to protect you from ear infections such as swimmer’s ear.
How to use Earol Swim.
Before you go into the water, pull your outer ear upwards to open your ear canal. Place the spray nozzle into the ear canal and spray once or twice as needed. Repeat in the other ear. When you leave the water, tip your head to each side to let the barrier repel the water out of your ears.
