In regard to the many enquiries we have had regarding the effectiveness of NatraSan against the SARS-CoV-2 virus and COVID-19.
The SARS-CoV-2 virus is a betacoronavirus. These types of virus are generally considered to have a low resistance to effective disinfection products.
Our hypochlorous (HOCl) technology has been tested successfully in every case against several types of coronavirus and has been independently tested in UK laboratories to the following European standard EN 14476 (Quantitative suspension test for the evaluation of viricidal activity in the medical area). This test is the benchmark for effectiveness against Coronaviruses.
Remember NatraSan is alcohol free, skin friendly, non-sting and much faster acting than conventional alcohol-based sanitizers. With this virus you need to kill it fast.
WARNING. Since the start of the pandemic many products have come on the market from nowhere, describing themselves as “hypochlorous acid” and being marketed in many cases by companies that have only been incorporated since the start of the pandemic.
We have laboratory tested a range of these products and in most instances they are not hypochlorous at all – they are sodium hypochlorite (bleach) with a pH of around 8.5. Others described as hypochlorous are a very weak solution at an ineffective concentration of around 25ppm. Yet others were rocket fuel mixtures of hypochlorous and bleach at up to 5000ppm that we wouldn’t put anywhere near our skin. Many of these products claim to be compliant with UK and EU biocidal products regulations but on closer inspection they do not have the individual EU registration that the law demands. Many we looked at didn’t have the most basic information on the label as required by law. Some didn’t even have an expiry date and most only had a shelf life of two to three months. Our advice is to please be careful of what you buy.
The Hypochlorous acid active ingredient in all our NatraSan products is supplied by our technology partners who are the only company who have had their active substance dossiers assessed and approved by the European Chemicals Agency including for human use. It is for this reason that we are trusted to supply the many healthcare and other blue chip companies we sell to around the world in this crisis.
Harnessing the power of the human immune system.
NatraSan is an advanced antiseptic and disinfectant with the active ingredient Hypochlorous acid (HOCl). Hypochlorous is the biocide produced in all human immune systems.
NatraSan kills all types of germs on contact, but as it is part of the human body it is completely benign to human skin and tissue.
- Multi-purpose, NatraSan can be used as an antiseptic on the skin, as a skin sanitiser and as a disinfectant to sanitise hard and soft surfaces.
- NatraSan is bactericidal, viricidal, fungicidal and sporicidal.
- Contains no harmful chemicals, alcohol, preservatives or essential oils.
- Ingredients: Water, salt (saline solution), hypochlorous acid (HOCl) only.
- We supply our hypochlorous to health providers around the world. These organisations have switched to our products because they are far faster at killing pathogens than their previous alcohol based products.
- Always use biocides safely. Read the product instructions before use.
The active ingredient of NatraSan is hypochlorous acid (HOCl). Hypochlorous is approved for human use as a skin disinfectant under the EU Biocidal Products Legislation EU528 (2012). This means every element of our hypochlorous technology has been tested for safety and efficacy. It is also approved as a hard/soft surface sanitiser.
