In response to the many messages and queries we have recently received regarding Leucillin and Corona Virus:
This particular strain of Corona Virus, COVID-19 is similar to SARS-CoV-2 and MERS-CoV; there are also many other variations of Corona Viruses. Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans. SARS, MERS and COVID-19 are all respiratory illnesses that are caused by the same large family of viruses called coronavirus.
HOCl (Hypochlorous acid) has been tested and Certified by The EPA (United States Environment Protection Agency) as effective against many Viruses, Bacteria and Fungus; recent test have confirmed its topical effectiveness against Human Corona virus, Herpes Simplex virus, HIV Type 1 (HIV) & Influenza A (H1N1).
Leucillin has currently the strongest concentration of HOCl available on the market; with its powerful oxidising function Leucillin is capable of rendering Corona Virus inactive when used as a skin surface sanitizer and in the correct manner.
To use Leucillin as a skin sanitizer, ensure your hands are clear of dirt, debris and oils (hand creams etc.), spray a liberal amount of Leucillin on both hands (spray until it is pooling and running off) then rub your hands together until the Leucillin is dry making sure you get in between the fingers and on the back of your hands. Leucillin is safe to use on yourself as well as your pet and unlike alcohol gels Leucillin will not sting or irritate broken skin and will also not dry out your skin.
Always bear in mind Leucillin or indeed any topical sanitiser is not a panacea, (a universal remedy) and cannot cure or protect you totally. Hand washing, maintaining distance from people who are coughing and not touching one's face with unwashed hands are measures recommended to prevent the spread of disease.
