FAQ

1. What is the active antimicrobial agent in (Hsp2O)® solution?

The active ingredient of (Hsp2O)®solution is hypochlorous acid, a well known and well noted biocidal agent, which is produced by the human body's natural immune system to fight infection. It is also known as "Super-oxidized Water" or "Electrolyzed Water". It is non-toxic to humans, animals, and the environment.

2. Is it safe for humans, animals and the environment?

Yes, (Hsp2O)®disinfectant is nontoxic to humans and animals. Independent research was done based on international standards to test acute oral toxicity, skin sensitization, eye irritation, skin irritation and bacterial mutagenicity. The research concluded that there is no known health risks associated with its intended use. In addition, the solution is biodegradable and does not harm the environment. It does not introduce chemical or soap residue into the ecosystem.

3. Why is (Hsp2O)® solution fragrance free?

Fragrances used by many manufacturers are typically toxic substances. There are no fragrances added to (Hsp2O)®. It is perfect for those with multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS) inlcuding asthma. In addition, it neutralizes and eliminates the nasty odors caused by food or pets. It does not just mask the odor like many disinfectant or freshers do.

4. How effective is the hypochlorous acid, the active ingredient of (Hsp2O)® solution?

Hypochlorous acid is highly effective against a wide variety of bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold and mildew based on results by independent test labs and scientific journals. These include:

Bacteria

Viruses

Fungi

Acinetobacter baumannii
C. Difficile
CRE
Escherichia coli (0157)
Enterococcus species (VRE)
Helicobacter pylori
Listeria
Legionella pneumophila
Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare
Mycobacterium bovis (TB)
Mycobacterium chelonae
Mycobacterium terrae
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB)
Mycobacterium xenopi
Mycobacterium smegmatis
Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
Samonella cholerasuis

Adenovirus type 4
Bacteriophage MS2
Hepatitis A & B (HAV)
Herpes virus type 1
HIV-1
Human and Animal Influenza (including H5N1 Avian Influenza)
MS2 virus
Human Norovirus (Norwalk)
HPV
Murine Norovirus
Orthopoxvirus
Poliovirus type 1

Poliovirus type 2

Aspergillus niger
Candida albicans
Trichophyton mentagrophytes

 

5. Does (Hsp2O)® cause antibiotic resistance?

The overuse and misuse of antibiotics have lead to the proliferation of "superbugs" such as MRSA. (Hsp2O)®solution is effective against a wide range of germs, including MRSA  and VRE. It does not contribute to the development of antibiotic resistance.

6. What is the difference between disinfectant and sanitizer?

There is a general misunderstanding by the consuming public as to the difference between a disinfectant and a sanitizer. Sanitizers only kill a percentage of viruses and bacteria (99.99% often advertised) while a disinfectant kills 100%. Sanitizers are therefore only effective at reducing the number of organisms present on a surface, leaving the remaining organisms to quickly reproduce after the sanitizer’s application. Furthermore, the organisms that remain after the application of a sanitizer may become resistant to future sanitizing treatments thereby reducing the effectiveness of a sanitizer after repeated applications. (Hsp2O)® disinfectant not only kills 100% of bacteria, it also does not introduce bacterial resistance.

7. How does (Hsp2O)® solution kill bacteria if they are non-toxic?

(Hsp2O)®solution is also known as "Super-oxidized Water" or "Electrolyzed Water". contains hypochlorous acid that reacts with a variety of microbial sub-cellular compounds, interferes with metabolic processes, and kills individual bacterium exposed within milliseconds. In the human body, white blood cells naturally produce hypochlorous acid as a defense against disease and bacteria in the body.

8. How long can (Hsp2O)® solution be stored?

(Hsp2O)®  has over 1 year of shelf life under normal storage conditions.
