So what is hypochlorous?
Hypochlorous is produced naturally in human and animal immune systems. It is the substance that the cells in our bodies use to fight infections and kill invading germs. Hypochlorous is not only one of the most effective known biocides capable of killing 99.9999% of all pathogens, it is one of the safest and poses no risk to humans or animals, indeed it can be used to kill bacteria in drinking water. It is also readily biodegradable and completely environmentally friendly.
The other great asset of hypochlorous is the speed at which it kills pathogens – in seconds rather than minutes.
Why haven’t I seen this before?
Hypochlorous was discovered in the 19th century by a British scientist. Actually producing hypochlorous was first achieved by scientists in the 1960’s. There was always a problem however in that no one was able to make a stable version that could be packaged with a shelf life.
The Holy Grail was to find a way of stabilising hypochlorous so it had full potency and an adequate shelf life and could therefore be packaged and used by the public, healthcare institutions and businesses. Whoever achieved that would create a monumental step forward in healthcare and hygiene.
We did it
It took a pharmaceutical sized budget and a team of very committed scientists but we cracked it. NatraSan is a genuinely stabilised optimum strength hypochlorous solution with a shelf life of one year. NatraSan does not contain preservatives or stabilising agents and the stability comes from the development of our electrodialysis manufacturing process. This stability data has been validated independently under our EU528/2012 compliance.
Before taking NatraSan First Aid Spray to market we validated our product through many independent institutions and universities and it has been field tested in conjunction with the NHS, leading private healthcare groups, the Royal Veterinary College, and many others.
NatraSan First Aid Spray is compliant with European Biocidal Products Regulations (EU528/2012) NatraSan has been independently laboratory tested in the UK to rigorous internationally recognised standards and complies with;
- BSEN 1276 (Bacterial)
- BS EN 13704 (Sporicidal)
- BSEN 1656 (Bacterial)
- BS EN 13697 (Fungicidal)
- BSEN 14675 (Virucidal)
We manufacture NatraSan in our own facility. We are therefore able to carefully monitor the quality of our products at all times.
We are already keeping you safe
We have an enviable reputation and we have many blue chip customers around the world including hospitals (infection control), agriculture groups, supermarket groups, food processors, veterinary clinics etc. who use our hypochlorous technology in their fight against pathogens. Though you won’t know it our hypochlorous products already keep you and your family safe through infection control in hospitals, care homes, schools and nurseries. We keep you safe through the sanitation of the ready to eat produce, salads and herbs you buy in the supermarkets and through delivering high standards of welfare and biosecurity for farm livestock such as poultry and dairy cows.
