The TIME 2019 Best Inventions list annually recognizes 100 groundbreaking inventions that are making the world better, smarter and a bit more fun.

To assemble the 2019 TIME Best Inventions list, TIME solicited nominations across a variety of categories from editors and correspondents around the world, as well as through an online application process.

ClearUP is a revolutionary healthcare innovation within the emerging category of bioelectronic medicine. It’s the only drug-free, non-invasive device on the market that uses low-level electrical stimulation, or microcurrent waveform, to treat adults 18+ with allergic rhinitis. ClearUP empowers the 50 million U.S. allergy sufferers with a quick and convenient over-the-counter solution to help manage and control allergy-related sinus pain anytime, anywhere at home, work or while travelling.

“We are honored to be selected as one of TIME’s 2019 Best Inventions in healthcare and be among such distinguished and accomplished innovators,” said Jennifer Ernst, CEO of Tivic Health. “The bioelectronics industry is generating new non-drug therapies and this new class of devices represents an emerging vertical in healthcare that is currently in its infancy but is showing promise in addressing serious conditions including depression, chronic pain, Parkinson’s, PTSD, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and others. There is a plethora of new products just now getting clearance from the FDA and an explosion in this new area of medicine is beginning to happen.” 

ClearUP is a game-changer, disrupting how we treat sinus pain

ClearUP’s state of the art technology emits low-level electrical stimulation called microcurrent to underlying sinus nerve fibers. Sinus sufferers and clinicians like ClearUP because it is 100% drug-free and has no chemical side effects. Just slowly glide ClearUP around your outer cheek, nose and brow bone for a quick five-minute treatment. Studies show that 74% experienced relief after one treatment that lasts up to six hours.

Beauty + CBD Faves by Mox Mind + Body Care Launch in CVS, Kohl’s Nationwide

CBD products are available in abundance online, but not always easy to find while you’re out and about shopping. All of that is about to change thanks to the skincare line Mox, which is prepping to invade two popular brick and mortar stores. Mox Mind + Body Care is one of the few select CBD beauty brands to be part of a CBD beauty launch at select CVS and Kohl’s stores.

Experience the skincare benefits of CBD without worrying about the hassle of shipping and delivery. Unlike traditional drug store brands,Mox replaces water with nutrition and ingredients that support healthy skin. Products contain pharmacist-designed formulas that are “power couples” of proven vitamins, minerals and organic CBD. No water, fillers or preservatives are used.

Mox is proud to be featured in CVS and Kohl’s at October 2019 introducing CBD skincare to more consumers.

CVS has been the retail innovator in CBD and was one of the first retailers to feature pain relief products in this category. The drug store chain is now expanding its CBD assortment to include new beauty brands and Mox was one of five selected. The initial launch includes 12 CVS stores in California, but will expand to 14 other states by early next year. Look for Mox’s Multivitamin Serum, Peppermint Salicylic Cleanser, Eye Bright, Triple Action Toner and Mineral Hydrating Mist on an end cap near you.

Kohls is building out its beauty business and Mox is honored to be part of its CBD beauty launch where it was one of four brands selected. Look for Mox’s Multivitamin Serum, Muscle Roller and Peppermint Salicylic Cleanser in 238 stores in the US.

More About Mox’s Powerful Skincare:

– Peppermint Salicylic Cleanser – Put an end to tired skin. Illuminate, awaken and cleanse skin with this organic hemp-derived CBDand Peppermint formula combined with Salicylic Acid to gently exfoliate and improve clarity.

About Mox Mind + Body Care:

Mox is here to help you take better care of your mind and body. That starts with replacing the water that is the #1 ingredient in nearly all skin care products with nutrition. And Mox is not just saying that so you’ll buy their stuff. The human body is a wise, wish-fulfilling machine. It’s wired with trillions of cells that know exactly what we need, and how to make it happen. When we feel tired, we over-caffeinate. When we feel pain, we pop a quick fix. When we feel stressed, we self-medicate. Often, we move further and further away from a natural state of wellness. At Mox, we believe it’s time to change that.

Pharmacist-formulated with powerful ingredient combinations that work with your body—never against it. Mox trusts in the power of plants, vitamins and minerals. Mox targeted, highly concentrated products stand apart through ingredient minimalism and formulating strategies that replace water with nutrients + organically-grown CBD. And Mox never uses fillers, parabens or preservatives-ever.

ClearUP Is Available Over-The-Counter To Treat Allergy-Related Sinus Pain

We are always looking forward to the holidays. One of the reasons, I know, is to receive so many gifts. A lot of times, we get so many gifts never can be used, because we don’t really need some of them. I think it is very important to gift something people really need, especially for their health. Last year, I gave my husband a blood-pressure monitor machine, which he loves very much. I know he needs it and he knows I care about him. This year, we want to introduce youva Allergy-Related Sinus Pain Relief device, it is Clearup.

Congestion, pain, and pressure are common symptoms of rhinitis and rhinosinusitis. These symptoms are caused by mucosal inflammation, venous engorgement, increased nasal secretions, edema, and hypersensitivity of sensory perception. Inflammatory and neurogenic mediators are key drivers of vasodilation leading to edema and swelling of the nasal mucosa and subsequent reduction in nasal airflow and increases in pain and pressure. Tivic Health’s ClearUP™ Sinus Pain Relief (ClearUP™) device delivers a pulsed electrical current to the skin near the nose and paranasal sinuses. When a decrease in impedance is detected by the device, a vibration prompts the user to hold the device in place for treatment.

Allergy relief can be found at home with Tivic Health’s game-changing ClearUP Sinus Pain Relief device. The state-of-the-art, handheld tool is available without a prescription and is FDA-cleared to treat sinus pain due to allergic rhinitis. With a one-control button, allergy sufferers can relieve sinus pain in one five-minute treatment. ClearUP is available online at BestBuy.com now and will be shortly at CVS.com and Walgreens.com.

The multi-billion-dollar US sinus care category is filled with over-the-counter drugs, RX pills and nose sprays. ClearUP is poised to disrupt the treatment of sinus pain due to allergies, a symptom for which there are no good solutions on the market. It is the only solution that uses gentle microcurrent waveforms to reduce allergy-related sinus pain for the 40-60 million Americans suffering from allergic rhinitis. ClearUP is an example of bioelectronic medicine, an emerging form of drug free, non-invasive medicine that uses low-level electrical stimulation, or neuromodulation, to treat chronic conditions. Available now over-the-counter and without a prescription, ClearUP is simple to use at home or on the go.

To use simply glide ClearUP along the cheek, side of the nose and under the brow bone. During a treatment, the device guides the user to the optimal treatment points with a light and vibration system and delivers a proprietary microcurrent waveform that stimulates sinus nerve fibers under the skin. A single treatment takes five minutes and the relief lasts up to six hours. Low-level electrical stimulation of the sinus nerve fibers has been shown to alleviate pain and pressure sensations and result in smaller blood vessel diameter and reduced edema (swelling).

ClearUP is clinically proven and FDA cleared, so it’s safe and effective. A double-blind, randomized, sham-controlled study showed 74 percent of users experienced sinus pain relief after one five-minute treatment and four out of five preferred it to their current treatment.
