How it Works
Shield™ Disinfectant/Sanitizer is listed on the EPA List N: Disinfectant for Use Against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the novel COVID-19 disease (EPA Reg. No. – 92108-1-96847).
The 'magic' behind the entire ShieldTM Cleansers product line is not really 'magic' at all, but rather nature at its purest combined with proven science. Shield's main ingredient is hypochlorous acid, a substance found naturally in the human body, and replicated by scientists by running an electrical charge through a combination of salt and water. This electro-chemical reaction reproduced the hypochlorous acid within a solution now known as anolyte water, and paved the way for a new generation of health, healing and cleanliness.
Now, to be fair, ShieldTM was not the first to discover what nature already possesses. Anolyte water was first discovered by a French surgeon, Nobel Laureate Alexis Carrel, in cooperation with a British biochemist, Drysdale Dakin. Their time period was World War I, and their mission was to aid the soldiers wounded in battle. They used HOCI stabilized with boric acid, to flush the interior surfaces of those wounded. The solution proved effective in not only preventing sepsis, but also in accelerating the healing process, and saving countless lives.
Today, hypochlorous acid in a stabilized form is a weapon to use against the countless things that threaten the immune system of the human body, or cleanliness of the environment. Homes, works places, kids, pets, farms and food are all vulnerable to germs, bacteria, infection or disease. Hypochlorous acid is produced by the human body to fight the war on health from within, and now you have hypochlorous acid in a bottle to fight from the outside.
What is the advantage of hypochlorous acid over traditional cleaners? Most of the pathogens, particularly water born, when used over time, develop resistance to cleansers such as sodium hypochlorite (bleach). In comparison, anolyte application, as a water disinfectant, used on a daily basis over the course of ten years, demonstrated that no resistance was developed over time to pathogenic microorganisms. Hypochlorous acid is also free from harmful fumes.
Hypochlorous acid, in the body works to break down the cells that are creating the infection by destroying the cell membrane and its DNA, thus halting the replication or growth process.
All of Shield's products contain hypochlorous acid and are formulated with varying concentrations to create a full line of products effective in several areas covering wound and skin care, to household cleaning or disinfecting, vet care and first aid. ShieldTM Disinfectant, registered by the EPA, and ShieldTM First Aid Solution, cleared by the FDA are the two flagship products of the ShieldTM line, and as leaders of the ShieldTM family, can give you the assurance of our product's validity, effectiveness and guarantee for family, pets, and homes!
