    Description (Rebecca's)

    This is the PF multidose version of Systane Hydration.

    Systane Hydration is basically regular Systane plus hyaluronic acid (HA), otherwise known as sodium hyaluronate or (as they are saying) just plain hyaluronate. HA is a good thing, and seeing more and more US companies jump on that bandwagon is a good thing.

    We now - finally - have quite a few on the US market. Outside the US, HA is used as the activate ingredient in many very popular drops such as Hylo Forte. However, due to (in my opinion) antiquated FDA regulations, American manufacturers are not allowed to list HA as an active ingredient - which also means they can't advertise it (a/k/a explain its benefits). In addition, the concentration of HA is not listed since it's on the "inactives" list. So annoying.

    But as I was saying, they have to list something else as the active ingredient. Each manufacturer has gone down a different path. For Oasis, and for Clear Eyes Pure Relief, it's glycerin. For Refresh Relieva, it's CMC and glycerin, so basically a cross between Refresh Plus and the others. For Blink, it's polyethylene glycol. And now for Systane, it's the usual Systane stuff (PEG and prop glycol).

    If you're a Systane fan, I encourage you to try Systane Hydration, since you're already used to the basic ingredients and this would give you the benefit of the HA.

    I'm very happy to see more and more preservative-free multi-dose bottles on the US market, though they are still uncommon and there is not a lot of awareness about them. These bottles are more economical than vials as well as more environmentally friendly. The one downside is that they are a little harder to use. For most of us, not a problem, just a matter of getting used to. But for arthritic hands, it can be a more serious problem.

    UPDATE June 2021: I'm amazed at how much strongly positive feedback I've had about this drop in the short time since it was launched.

    The Best

    Needed quick fix for the dry, pollen-filled air in Southern Cal. Ordered Systane Hydration PF which was received very quickly and have been using it continually since. This is good stuff!
