Just send me your money and walk away. They are bunk. No way can your mucous membranes in your nares or nasal passages tolerate or absorb that. And if it could how long until an infection set in? I have been in medicine since 1998 and there are few drugs given IN or Intra-Nasal and they are all water based and short acting.
I agree with your sentiments that its a crap idea, and most likely a marketing scam.
Some androgens & other hormones can be absorbed intranasally however, the effect maybe far different from what one would wish. Firstly the molecule size would be quite small ie no esters, and the half life would be very short. The bigger problem IMO is that the brain tends to get a bigger hit (concentration) than with other routes of administration, and that is exactly where one wants a lower concentration of androgens, unless all one seeks is some sort of short term psychoactive effect (possibly pre lift in competition).
That said, if the undesired effects/sides are not enough to put one off, irritation of the membranes is very likely, especially with frequent administration. I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole.
