    IRVINGTON, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 6, 2006--Chloraseptic(R), the leader in over-the-counter sore throat pain relief, has just introduced two innovative product lines in time for the upcoming cold season. New Chloraseptic Defense(TM) Daily Health Strips and Chloraseptic(R) Sugar Free Sore Throat Lozenges now join the brand's full line of pain relieving sprays, lozenges and instant dissolving strips.

    Chloraseptic Defense(TM) Daily Health Strips contain Vitamin C and zinc in convenient melt-in-the-mouth strips.

Each variety contains benzocaine and menthol to relieve sore throat pain and soothe. The Wild Cherry flavor treats sore throat pain plus cough with the addition of dextromethorphan as an active ingredient. It is the only sore throat/cough formula available to consumers in a sugar free lozenge.

    The new Chloraseptic products and the full line of sore throat relief sprays and lozenges are available at drug stores, supermarkets and mass merchandising outlets throughout the U.S. and Canada.
