PURE DEFENDER DISINFECTANT & SANITIZER

PURE DEFENDER DISINFECTANT & SANITIZER

Health Canada Approved hand sanitizer

Pure Defender ULTRA-Lyte is a Canadian-based product, using hypochlorous acid as the active ingredient. Hypochlorous acid is a natural and highly effective disinfectant. It is a Health Canada approved disinfectant that can be used in the fight against COVID-19. Hypochlorous acid is strong on germs but gentle on skin and the environment. It is a cost effective and safe alternative to alcohol and chlorine-based sanitizers.

Concentrated for greater flexibility of use:

We sell Pure Defender in a concentrated form that meets the criteria of a disinfectant (more powerful than a hand sanitizer). Pure Defender can be diluted with water at a 2-1 ratio to be used as a sanitizer. Even as a sanitizer Pure Defender still exceeds the germ killing performance of alcohol-based hand sanitizers. One litre of Pure Defender concentrate will make 2 litres of hand sanitizer. If you should require greater strength, then you can apply the concentrate without dilution or at a lesser dilution rate.

IMPORTANT QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

What is Hypochlorous Acid?

Hypochlorous Acid (HA) is a natural substance with high efficacy towards pathogens. HA is produced in the human immune system (in white blood cells) as a defence against infection.

How is Hypochlorous Acid made?

Hypochlorous acid is produced when a brine solution of water and sodium chloride (salt) is subjected to an electric current (electrolysis). The electric current dissolves the chlorine in the salt solution to create the hyprochlorous acid. Minuscule traces of salt remain in the solution after electrolysis.

Is Hypochlorous Acid stable?

To increase the stability of hypochlorous acid a post production ph-adjustment is needed. This is accomplished by the addition of food-grade citric acid, which can be found naturally in many fruits.

What is the shelf life of Pure Defender?

The shelf life of Pure Defender is 1 year.

Is Pure Defender food safe?

Yes! Hypochlorous Acid has been used in the food-processing industry for years.

What are the “other” ingredients in Pure Defender?

Trace amounts of sodium chloride (salt) are left over from the electrolysis process and citric acid.

SO WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Hypochlorous acid and alcohol-based sanitizers can both be effective disinfectants. In the list below we have highlighted their main differences to show why hypochlorous acid is a better choice:

THE HISTORY OF HYPOCHLOROUS ACID

Pure Defender’s active ingredient is hypochlorous acid and it has been used extensively in hospitals, dermatology, wound care and dentistry as a disinfectant for decades.

Hypochlorous Acid was first approved in Europe and has been in use for decades. Around the year 2000 it was approved in the USA and Canada for various disinfecting uses in the healthcare and food processing industries.

One of the problems bringing hypochlorous acid to the general consumer disinfectant marketplace has been its lack of stability and therefore a short shelf-life. For this reason hypochlorous acid was produced and used promptly within in the facilities where it was needed.

Recently, chemists have been working on ways to stabilize hypochlorous acid to further increase its effectiveness and widen its use. With the addition of citric acid, hypochlorous acid now has an effective lifespan of a year, provided it is kept in opaque containers out of direct sunlight. Pure Defender products are all contained within appropriate opaque containers.

Recently Health Canada has approved hypochlorous acid for use against Covid-19.
