FAQs

IS SHIELD™ DISINFECTANT/SANITIZER EPA APPROVED?

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).

WHAT IS SHIELD™ FIRST AID SOLUTION

Shield™ First Aid Solution is unlike any other toxic wound treatments. Shield Wound + Skin Solution is a one-step, easy to use, no mix, no dilution, no rinse solution that deactivates many harmful microorganisms that are common in and around the wound area. Shield First Aid Solution is intended to be used in the management of cleaning, irrigating and debriding of skin abrasions, lacerations, burns, minor irritations, cuts and intact skin. Its pH is in the physiologically acceptable range of human skin and is also shelf-stable.

*Reduction in microbial growth in solution has not shown to correlate with a reduction of infection in patients. No clinical studies have been performed to evaluate reduction of infection. 

THE ADVANTAGE

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 in 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.

THE SCIENCE

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.
