The Journey to StingFree: A Revolutionary Idea in Nicotine Enjoyment
The Genesis of StingFree
For years, Bengt relished his snus use, a habit that was instrumental in his triumph over smoking. However, when his gums began to suffer, causing pain and burning sensations, his dentist’s stark warning was clear: stop using snus or risk permanent gum damage. Faced with a difficult decision, Bengt returned home only to conceive a seemingly odd yet brilliant solution. “What if I put a protective layer on the snus against my gums?” Experimenting with this idea, he found relief from the burn, maintaining the snus’s flavor and nicotine hit. Months later, a dental check-up confirmed the significant improvement in his gum health.
From Idea to Innovation
Bengt’s brainchild was not just a personal fix but a potential game-changer for snus users. He patented his novel concept, envisioning a future where his innovation would be embraced by snus and nicotine pouch manufacturers. Despite initial rejections and skepticism from industry executives, Bengt remained undeterred. He persisted in his mission, eventually teaming up with his son Daniel, now the CEO, to introduce StingFree products in Sweden.

The Problem with Traditional Pouches
Traditional snus and nicotine pouches often lead to a stinging sensation against the gums, contributing to oral health issues like lesions and gum recession. StingFree’s revolutionary approach tackles this problem head-on by implementing a protective barrier on the gum side of the pouch, allowing users to enjoy their nicotine without the sting while still experiencing full flavor and nicotine delivery.
StingFree Experience: How and Why It Works
The Science of Sting
The stinging sensation in traditional snus and nicotine pouches is attributed to the need for a higher pH level than the mouth’s natural environment to effectively deliver nicotine. While a higher pH enhances the nicotine experience, it also increases gum irritation. Furthermore, the nicotine concentration and certain flavors like mint or ginger contribute to this sensation.
The Correct Way to Use StingFree
StingFree is designed with a dual-focus approach: protecting the non-regenerative gums and ensuring optimal flavor and nicotine absorption. Users should place the pouch under the upper lip with the blue, protective side facing the gums to enjoy a full, safer experience for up to 45 minutes. The design ensures that while the gums are shielded, the flavor and nicotine release are not compromised.
