Silence anti-snoring spray

Life is stressful enough without having to suffer from interrupted sleep or having to sleep next to someone whose decibel output is on a par with a vacuum cleaner.




Life is stressful enough without having to suffer from interrupted sleep or having to sleep next to someone whose decibel output is on a par with a vacuum cleaner.

Sleep, considered an essential component to maintaining quality of life, is crucial to resting and refreshing mind and body - more so for women than men. Women rate sleep as the top priority for meeting their general wellbeing and beauty needs.

Many women and men suffer with interrupted sleep and snoring is the biggest cause of a poor night’s sleep - after stress and pain.

Statistically, snoring affects 47% of the adult population and 61% of the snoring population are men. Apart from the strain that snoring places on a relationship (45% of partners say that snoring has a significant impact on their quality of life), the consequences of poor sleep also include impaired daily functioning, mood disorders, weight gain, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and hypertension. The problem increases with age and is made worse by obesity.

Snoring is caused by a relaxation of the throat muscles and a narrowing of the airways to the lungs. The air passing through the narrowed passage causes vibrations of the soft palate and throat tissues which results in snoring.

Unsurprisingly, women make up 85% of shoppers in search of anti-snoring aids and 90% of them shop for a solution in a pharmacy.

SILENCE ® ANTI-SNORING FOAM SPRAY tackles the main cause of snoring with a highly-effective foam throat spray that offers long-lasting effects.


  • Phospholipids in the foam have emulsifying and lubricating properties that act as a wetting agent on the treated area.
  • Carrageenan promotes adhesion to the trachea mucosa so that treatment remains active throughout the night.
  • The adhesive properties of carrageenan coat and firm the trachea mucosa tissues to reduce vibrations.
  • With repeated use, the astringent properties of rosehip extract assist in decreasing inflammation by toning the pharyngeal muscle.

SILENCE ® ANTI-SNORING SOLUTION SPRAY is clinically proven to reduce the peak value of snoring 10-fold. In fact, 90% of couples state that the snoring decreased or even stopped while 84% report that the benefits were longer lasting.

SILENCE ® ANTI-SNORING SOLUTION SPRAY should be sprayed at the back of the throat for one second with the can upside down. After swallowing, the process should be repeated twice more.

SILENCE ® products are non-addictive. They’re unsuitable for asthmatics or sleep apnoea and cannot be used by individuals with allergies to peanuts or soya. Pregnant women are advised to consult a doctor first.

SILENCE ® ANTI-SNORING SOLUTION SPRAY  has a recommended Retail Selling Price of R 99.95 and is available at selected Dis-Chem , Clicks  and independent pharmacies nationwide.
