What is Hypocare?
It is a topical application that mirrors the body's own immune system. Working naturally with the body it helps provide relief from scratching, stings and bites and soothes irritated skin.
How does it mirror the body's own immune system?
The active ingredient is Hypochlorous acid, which is produced naturally by the body's immune system. When a wound or infection occurs in the body, neutrophils (type of white blood cell) are deployed to fight infection. The neutrophils then engulf the invading pathogen and produce Hypochlorous acid to kill the bacteria.
How powerful is Hypocare?
Hypochlorous acid is between 80-300 times more effective at killing pathogens than hypochlorite or bleach. Although its disinfecting powers are unrivalled, it is kind to healthy tissue and has a skin neutral pH.
Does Hypocare sting?
No. Hypocare will not sting when applied as it has been formulated to emulate a skin pH which means it works in harmony with the body.
What animals can Hypocare be used on?
Any mammal. It is frequently used because of its ability to help maintain healthy and itch-free skin. It is also safe if ingested, so you won't need to worry about your pet licking the affected area.
Will Hypocare harm healthy tissue?
No. Hypochlorous acid is a chemical that the body produces naturally, it is non-toxic, non-sensitising, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral solution formulated to emulate skin pH and is safe around eyes and other sensitive areas.
Can pathogens become resistant to Hypocare?
No. Unlike antibiotics where overuse has resulted in resistance, pathogens cannot become resistant to Hypochlorous.
Is Hypocare competition safe?
Yes. Hypocare contains none of the banned substances disapproved by the FEI.
Why has it not been available before?
It has long been acknowledged that Hypochlorous is highly effective at killing a wide range of microorganisms and that it is safe for users and has no environmental implications - unlike traditional chemical sanitisers or disinfectants. Until now however, it has not been possible to product high strength Hypochlorous with a shelf life of more than a few hours.
Hypocare Stories -
"Really pleased with the results. I'd been disinfecting my pony's fetlocks by washing with hibiscrub, rinsing and drying (almost impossible as he is very hairy). He was getting very fed up and as soon as he saw the bucket would not stand still. I tried Hypocare and the condition improved in a matter of days. It's easy to apply so we're both happy."
