Why magnets?Updated a year ago

No, they're not just shiny

The magnetic aspect of Intake is simply the best way we could find for the product to hold on to the nose without being a single strip (like a common nasal strip). We tried velcro and all sorts of things to keep the rigid band stuck on the nose, but we found that it's actually vital to use magnets. The two magnets on the end of the band attract to the dome shaped disc inside the Tab creating two points of contact on either side of your nose. This allows the magnets to hold tight, while creating a sort of 'floating' property about the Band. The nose moves a lot more than you may realize, so we needed the Tabs to stay stuck while the Band was able to 'float' on top of them. Trust us- we put a lot of thought into this little thing!
