There are many solutions on the market that can be used to clean and debride wounds, so what sets BluLyte Wound Care apart? The active ingredient in BluLyte Wound Care is a powerful multi-oxidant molecule known as hypochlorous acid (HOCl). Hypochlorous acid is produced by white blood cells in the body as a part of our immune system, and its job in our immune system’s defense response is to destroy foreign bodies and potentially harmful cells.
Read below to learn more about all the benefits BluLyte Wound Care has to offer you and your family.
1. Hypochlorous acid is an effective biocide.
With its active ingredient, BluLyte products are effective at killing a vast range of microorganisms like bacteria, fungi, spores, and viruses. We continually test and evaluate our products to prove the effectiveness of hypochlorous acid across all industries. Learn about our reports and research here. Even more amazing? HOCl is able to kill up to 99.9999% of bacteria and other microbes without being harmful to the environment.
2. No antimicrobial resistance.
With medications and antimicrobial agents like antibiotics, there is an established pattern of microbes building up resistance. These agents therefore become less effective while making the microbes more difficult to treat in the future. Hypochlorous acid has been found to overcome this resistance and is able to safely disrupt biofilm that protects bacteria and other microbes.
3. Non-irritating and non-cytotoxic.
While hydrogen peroxide and rubbing alcohol have been used extensively for wound cleaning, they have been found to disrupt wound healing and may damage sensitive tissue and healing wounds. BluLyte products are non-cytotoxic, do not sting, and are safe enough to apply to even chronic wounds.
4. Promotes wound healing and cell proliferation.
BluLyte products are formulated with a neutral pH that have an optimal effectiveness on skin. BluLyte Wound Care is also effective on a range of conditions and for a number of reasons beyond just wound cleaning. BluLyte Wound Care can be used on stage I-IV pressure wounds, diabetic ulcers, post-surgical wounds, grafted and donor sites, first- and second-degree burns, mild skin abrasions and lacerations, skin irritations, and insect bites. You can learn about the effect of HOCl on diabetic ulcers here. You can also learn about the effect of HOCl on caring for burns here.
5. BluLyte is natural and eco-friendly.
The HOCl in BluLyte Wound Care is produced on-site through the electrolysis of water and salt. All BluLyte products are free from steroids, antibiotics, iodine, tea tree oil, hydrogen peroxide, chlorhexidine, isopropyl alcohol, and benzalkonium chloride. The HOCl in BluLyte products breaks down into a saline solution and leaves no chemical residue behind, harmful or otherwise. It does not even need to be rinsed off after application.
6. We are certified.
BluLyte is a Proudly South African company and all our products are produced locally. BluLyte products are manufactured in an ISO 9001 certified manufacturing plant, and we are also NRCS compliant. This means that all BluLyte products are registered to be used in industrial, domestic, and institutional areas. We are licenced by SAHPRA (South African Health Products Regulatory Authority), and have our NAPPI (National Pharmaceutical Product Index) codes as well.
7. Safe for the whole family.
Unlike alcohol-based disinfectants and chemical-based wound cleaners, BluLyte Wound Care is non-toxic and will not cause any harm if accidentally ingested. And because it is a molecule that originates in the body as well, HOCl can be used on everyone, even the most sensitive skin. It does not sting or burn, even if applied on open wounds, and is safe for toddlers and infants.
8. Soothing and anti-inflammatory action.
Along with being able to kill pathogens and encourage wound healing, HOCl also has strong anti-inflammatory action. HOCl is able to assist with treating skin conditions like eczema, contact dermatitis and seborrheic dermatitis, acne, and psoriasis. BluLyte Wound Care is able to soothe irritated and inflamed skin and helps provide some relief to chronic skin conditions.
So there you have it, a wide range of reasons why BluLyte Wound Care should be your first port of call when you’re looking for a safe, effective, family-friendly solution to wound care management.
