Murine Eye Mist
Murine, has launched
Murine Eye Mist, a spray
solution that moisturises
and refreshes dry and
tired eyes naturally. Eye
Mist is sprayed onto
closed eyelids and is
even suitable for use
with contact lenses and
eye makeup. Dry eyes are a common
problem with many possible causes
including air-conditioned or windy
environments, extended computer
work, wearing contact lenses, long
distance travel, ageing and medication.

dry eyes because of a disruption to the
natural tear film. Gaps in the layer allow
moisture to evaporate from the aqueous
layer beneath. Murine Eye Mist applies

the tear film layer. The liposomes spread
onto the surface of the eye to restore
and stabilise the natural tear film,
reducing moisture loss.
Murine Eye Mist is preservative free and
can be used as often as needed. Simply
spray on closed eyes, anytime, to gently
moisture and refresh dry and tired
eyes. Note: If irritation persists, consult a
