Hand disinfection

AntiVir™

highly effective without harming the skin

The Need:
____

Normally, hand disinfection comes as a liquid or gel, based on 70-85% alcohol. These products work by drying out the bacterial-cell walls, thereby destroying them.

However, alcohol is also affecting healthy skin by dehydrating it. People using alcohol-based hand disinfection, therefore risk to damage the skin, and the more often alcohol-based products are used, and the more fragile it is, the higher the risk. Healthcare and service personnel, children, and older people are typically at risk. According to WHO, 25-50% of healthcare personnel claim to have skin problems on their hands.

If you or your colleagues are in a risk group,
you should look for more gentle alternatives with the same,
better, or broader disinfecting effect compared to
alcohol-based products.

The Solution:
____

AntiVir™ is a patented, alcohol-free solution developed by the Norwegian company SoftOx Solutions AS. It uniquely combines the instant microbial killing effect of hypochlorous acid (HOCl), which is generated from the active ingredient sodium hypochlorite during the manufacturing process and improved with an organic acid. AntiVir™ is the first hypochlorous acid hand disinfectant with documented two years shelf life.

In contrast to alcohol, which consists of 75-85 % organic solvent, AntiVir™ is water-based combined with ingredients naturally present in the human body. It does not attack the natural fat layer that protects the skin and is gentle towards the skin’s natural microflora.

As the active chlorine in the solution works through oxidation, the name of the company came quickly; SoftOx Solution.

To repeat AntiVir™ is:

1. Alcohol-free hand disinfectant

  • Approved for humans
  • Regulated by Biocidal Product Regulation (BPR), Product Type 001

    2. Superior killing effect and broad-spectrum solution

      1. The solution has shown a superior killing effect on bacteria, yeast, fungi, and inactivation of viruses. Better than required by European Norm (EN) tests, and the virucidal effect, including the Covid-19 virus, is broader than for any hand disinfection with up to 85% alcohol known to SoftOx Solutions. Documented through:

        • EN1500   Approved as a hand disinfection product
        • EN13727   Approved efficient on bacteria for use in the medical area
        • EN13624   Approved efficient on fungi & yeast for use in the therapeutic area
        • EN14476   Approved efficient on all types of viruses for use in the medical field
          Tested efficient on enveloped viruses such as SARS-CoV-2

        3. Fast kill/inactivation

        • Enveloped Virus 15 sec. Like: Corona, Vaccinia, Influenza, HIV, and Herpes
        • Bacteria 30 sec. Like: Staphylococcus sp., P. aeruginosa & E. coli 
        • Yeast & Fungal 30 sec. Like: Candida albicans, Aspergillus braziliensis
        • Naked Virus 1-2 min. Like: Noro-, Polio-, Adeno-and Rotaviruses

        AntiVir™ is inactivating the Coronavirus in 15 seconds, whereas alcohol-based disinfectants require 30 seconds – which, in practice, is not always reached as the alcohol evaporates too fast.

        FDA only approves efficacy claims for alcohol-based hand disinfection (80%) on bacteria, no virus

        4. Well-tolerated*               

        AntiVir™ is a water-based solution with 0.02% or 200ppm hypochlorous acid (HOCl), which is developed from the active ingredient sodium hypochlorite during the manufacturing process and improved with an organic acid.

        It has a light scent of chlorine and vinegar that disappears when hands are drying – an odour of efficiency.

        * Clinically tested at Department of Dermatology, Bispebjerg Hospital, University of Copenhagen

        5. Safe                      

        In contrast to alcohol-based disinfectants, AntiVir™ does not require classification as dangerous according to the CLP Regulation (EC No 1272/2008), and no safety warnings

        These pictograms, used for hazardous chemicals, are not required:
