Overview

Fast, effective relief from mouth ulcers

Iglu Gel is specially formulated with bio-adhesive technology. This is what makes it stick fast over the ulcer, locking in the active ingredients to soothe the pain and fight infection, while creating a lasting shield around and over the sore to protect it from further irritation. This triple action effect helps speed up the healing process.


How to use

Three simple steps

1

Use a clean tissue to gently remove excess moisture and saliva from the ulcer area.

2

Squeeze a small quantity of gel onto a clean, dry fingertip or cotton bud. Apply directly onto the ulcer using a single, gentle wiping action (avoid dabbing).

3

The gel might seem paste-like and sticky at first; however, on contact with saliva, it will form a flexible and lasting adhesive shield over and around the ulcer area.
