Why should I choose HOCl Skincare for my animal?

Leucillin Animal Skincare, Hypochlorous Antiseptic Technology

LEUCILLIN is a Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) based antiseptic solution and is one on the highest performing formulations of stable Hypochlorous, it is skin pH neutral at 5.5 - 6.0 pH.

Hypochlorous efficacy is driven by pH aneutral and is not asnd should be a weak acid to achieve maximum effect. pH7 whilst being neutral is not skin neutral and is not as effective.

Leucillin conforms to: REACH & the European Biocide Products Directive; Leucillin has no COSHH requirements. Leucillin conforms to and/or exceeds BS:EN 1276, BS:EN 1650, BS:EN1656, BS:EN 13704, BS:EN 1500, BS:EN14476, BS:EN13624.

The latest test conducted by The NHS Laboratories at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Test facility; EN 13727 which supersedes some of those above tests, Leucillin achieved a class leading 99.99999% (Log7) or maximum measurable reduction in bacteria.

Hypochlorous Acid: HOCl

The chemical Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is weak acidic chlorine that is actually a natural occurring chemical, produced in the mammalian body by Leukocytes or Neutrophils to fight infection caused by invading microorganisms or pathogens (bacterial, viral and fungal.) In the mammalian body, during tissue injury or infection, neutrophils, white blood cells, travel to the site of infection where they capture and engulf the pathogen then produce Hypochlorous to destroy these harmful pathogen.

Stabilised Hypochlorous is a revolutionary breakthrough in healthcare with many 100 times the effectiveness of standard antiseptics while proven to be 100% safe, other antiseptics struggle to achieve the 99.999% efficacy required for a Standard EN13727 test, whereas a good and well-produced HOCl formulation can achieve 99.99999% efficacy on the same test; a 100 fold improvement in efficacy, whilst still remaining nontoxic, non-irritant and skin pH neutral.

Applications and Usages

Cuts, wounds, stubborn infections, rashes and skin irritations, dry, itchy, flaky or smelly skin problems, ear and eye infections, burns and abbess, are just some of the many uses of Leucillin, and of course as a general purpose antiseptic.

Using Leucillin to flush and debride a wound or to clean an infection not only dramatically reduces the pathogens, but also has the effect of calming the associated inflammation as the body responds to the presence of the very chemical the Neutrophil makes to fight infection.

Mammalian skin is the largest and probably the most important organ of the body, its health and well-being is not only paramount to a healthy animal, but it is also often good indicator of overall heath. Leucillin can be used to help maintain healthy skin; it acts as a topical wound wash, an antibacterial treatment, promotes healing by reducing potential for infection and is a preventative solution, by destroying pathogens before they have chance to take hold. Spraying Leucillin washes the area, its highly effective antiseptic properties cleanse and eradicate germs, preventing infection, Leucillin is instant in its effect, working on contact and resulting in faster recovery time.

Leucillin can be used safely on all mammals including felines, which do suffer sensitivities to Chlorhexidine based antiseptics, these can cause severe irritation, tissue damage and in some cases deafness.

The Breakthrough

While it is the Hypochlorous content which produces the results, it is the stabilization and manufacturing process that has enabled Leucillin to become a viable off the shelf, “Over the Counter” high efficacy antiseptic. Leucillin is a fast, effective, versatile and safe, result driven alternative to other caustic antiseptics. Hypochlorous is the future of topical antiseptic care, without any of the constraints of other toxic and potentially harmful alternatives used up until now.
