What is Hypocare?
Hypocare is a revolution in infection control. It is a topical application that mirrors the bodyâ€™s own immune system. Working naturally with the body, it rapidly kills bacterial, viral and fungal infections. In the equine world Hypocare is used to clean and flush wounds and injuries as well as stubborn fungal infections, such as Ringworm, Mud Fever and Thrush.
How does Hypocare mirror the bodyâ€™s own immune system?
The active ingredient in Hypocare is Hypochlorous acid, which is produced naturally by the bodyâ€™s own immune system. When a wound or infection occurs in the body, neutrophils, a type of white blood cell are deployed to the site of infection. The neutrophils then engulf the invading pathogen and produce Hypochlorous acid which kills 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, ensuring that it will not slow down the healing process.
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?
Hypocare can be used on any Mammal. In the domestic pet world, it is frequently used because of its ability to help maintain healthy and itch-free skin. It is also safe if ingested, so you wonâ€™t need to worry about your pet licking the affected area.
Will Hypocare harm healthy tissue?
No. Because Hypochlorous is a chemical that the body produces naturally, it is completely harmless to sensitive areas such as eyes, cuts and open wounds.
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 sanitizers or disinfectants. Until now however, it has not been possible to produce high strength Hypochlorous with a shelf life of more than a few hours.
Ground breaking technology
Hypocare is a ground breaking technology developed by a British company that has succeeded in making high strength, stable Hypochlorous acid that will change horsemanship and animal care forever.
