Out of all of the robust French products that have come to the United States because of their gentle and magnificent qualities, Gouttes Bleues Innoxa, also known as Innoxa Gouttes Bleues, or Innoxa blue eyedrops is becoming more and more popular for people from all backgrounds, cultures, and statures. Why? Because anybody can benefit from the natural, soothing properties that it has to offer.
What is It?
The phrase Innoxa Gouttes Bleues when translated into English from French means “Innoxa blue drops.” Innoxa is the name of the company, and blue drops are what the product consists of.
The product itself is a small bottle of blue eyedrops that are formulated in a French laboratory. The drops are meant to relieve redness and irritation of the eyes similar to the way many of the popular eyedrop products in the US do. The difference is that the ingredients that go into Innoxa Gouttes Bleues are all-natural components as opposed to the drug that the US drops include.
Why Innoxa Gouttes Bleues is Better
Most of the eyedrops that are manufactured and sold in the United States are endowed with a decongestant known as tetrahydrozoline hydrochloride. What this does is constricts the blood vessels in the eyes so that less blood flows through them. With less blood flow, the red in the eyes dissipates. Although this may seem like a harmless solution, the truth is that any time you constrict blood flow in your body you cause there to be a lack of oxygen to that area.
Instead of introducing a chemical into the bloodstream, the Innoxa blue drops coat the surface of the eye with a blue dye that not only soothes eye irritation but causes the white of the eye to appear whiter and brighter than ever.
As the sclera, also known as the white of the eye, brightens and appears to be pure white, the iris of the eye – the part that has your eye color – looks brighter and more dazzling. The end result is that both eyes look bright and more alive.
How To Apply Inoxa Goputtes Bleues
If you have used eye drops in the past you are probably familiar with the way that they are applied. There is not much difference between the way this type of eyedrop is applied and other eye drops.
The first thing you have to do is take a look at the ingredients and make totally sure that none of them will cause any kind of irritation to your eyes because of allergies, or sensitivities. Although there are no harsh chemicals or drugs in the drops, it is always better to make sure that there is nothing in there that you could be allergic to.
The ingredients are:
- Boric acid
- Chamomilla recutita extract
- Sodium chloride
- Malva sylvestris
- Blue dye (C142051)
If there is nothing in there that you might have a sensitivity to you can move forward in the process.
The first step is to unscrew the cap of the bottle so that it is ready to go when the time comes. The bottle is equipped with an easy-to-twist cap that covers the eyedropper that the solution will drop out of.
After the bottle is ready to go, the next step is to tilt the head back so that when the drops fall into the eye they stay there and do not drip away down your cheek.
Once the head is in position, take the bottle into one of your hands and make sure it is ready to drop. With the other hand, reach up and open your eyelid up nice and wide. While the eye is wide open, pull the bottle into position and drop 3 or 4 drops directly onto the eye. If you can get it into the corner it’s great, if not, anywhere in the eye will be good.
When one eye has dropped in it, move to the remaining one and repeat the process. Since most people only have two eyes you should not have to repeat the process any more than once. You never know. Somebody could have multiple eyes. If this is you, just continue to keep the eye that is receiving the drops wide open and do not allow the drops to simply drip away.
Once all of the eyes have received their drops, continue to hold the head back for 10 or 20 more seconds and let the drops sit there for a little while. Blink the eyes and move them back and forth to distribute the drops evenly across the surface of the eye.
Since these drops are also available in single-dose vials you have the option to purchase them in that form. Placing the drops in the eyes will be the same way that it is from the bottle. Tilt the head back, hold open the eyelid, and gently apply preassure to the vial so that the drops slowly fall into the eye that you drop them in.
With the singe-dose vials it is recommended that you put one drop in each eye from the vial because of the available amount in the vial will be limited.
The Power of Water
The main ingredient of the drops is water for a reason. Not just any water, but water that has been filtered and is free from any impurities. Water has the abily to gently cleanse whatever surface it touches. When it comes to the eyes, we all should have natural water and lubricants known as tears to keep our eyes moist and clear.
For some people the tear ducts stop producing tears and they are left with a condition known as “dry eye.” This may not seem like a big deal, but for millions of people it causes from moderate to severe discomfort. Whent he eyes have nothing to protect them from the natural elements of the air they become irritated and damaged.
Not the this partcular product is made to address dry eye specifically, it does have some of the key ingredients to bring relieve to dry eyes.
Our tears are made up of water that our body stores, naturally-occuring sodium, and some oily lipids that act as lubrication for our eyes as our eyelids continually blink over the top of them.
Natural, gentle eye drops have the capacity to restore lubrication and vitality to the eyes and give them protection from foreign bodies such as smoke and dust. Dried out eyes without any kind of moisture can be extremely painful so it is important to make sure that the eyes are protected and lubricated.
What is Innoxa?
Innoxa is a laboratory brand that has been around since 1920. The owners are a married couple that have a vast knolwede of opthomology and over 30 years of experience in the field. The couple teamed up with leading doctors and scientists for form a company that not only brings expertise and experience, but a passion for brining people the highest quality products on the market for eye health.
The couple’s knowledge with the professional edge of the rest of the team allows the laboritory to create some of the finest eyecare products in the world. In addition to the blue eydrops, the company offers a clear, colorless option as well.
Although many of the trusted brands that the United States has to offer are well-known and have been around for decades it does not mean that they are a healthy way to care for the eyes. If you think about it, there is a fast food restaruant on just about every corner of every city in the US and many times there are lines of people trying to get something to eat. Most health professionals agree that fast food is not a healthy way to eat. Many of those same experts will tell you that it is safer and healthier for the eyes to use drops that use natural ingredients to deliver healing effects.
Innoxa Bottes Bleues may not be easy to pronounce in English, but that’s OK. You can find it just about anywhere that there are French beauty products. Be smart about your eyes and put only gentle, natural drops in them.
