Blue Planet™ Hospital Grade Disinfectant, With Stabilized Hypochlorous Acid
“We named our patented new product Blue Planet because it breaks down into saline solution…and our earth’s blue color when seen from space is due to saline solution — salt water — that covers over 70 percent of the earth’s surface,” Jim Epstein, CEO of Intercon Chemical/Clearly Better Solutions said. “We feel that this product reflects our core commitment to innovation, safety and sustainability.”
With a toxicity rating of IV, Blue Planet carries the lowest toxicity level designated by the Environmental Production Agency and requires no warning statements on its label. The EPA-registered, COVID List-N product is a broad-spectrum hospital-grade bacterial, virucidal and fungicidal disinfectant/cleaner and one minute food surface contact sanitizer, made with Intercon’s stabilized hypochlorous acid. The product breaks down into simple saline water after use, and evaporates leaving no chemical residue. No rinse is ever required, even on food contact surfaces.
Also, no PPE’s are required. Due to its inherent safety profile, the product requires no gloves, protective eye wear and other personal protective equipment when applying with a spray bottle or electrostatic sprayer, according to Epstein.
“What we have now, with Blue Planet, is a breakthrough technology that is clearly better than other disinfecting technologies, leveraging a people- and planet-friendly disinfectant that kills 99.9 percent of bacteria in one minute on food contact surfaces and other areas, and does not contain bleach, quats or alcohol. Testing shows it kills SARS CoV2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome) in two minutes, while remaining people and planet friendly,” Epstein said. “Instead of harsh or toxic ingredients, our patented product contains non-toxic, stabilized hypochlorous acid, which we manufacture in a patented, proprietary process at our factory in St. Louis, MO.
“It is interesting to note that we all produce hypochlorous acid in our white blood cells to attack pathogens in the body, serving as our own natural germ killing agents. It doesn’t get any more natural than that! Once it does its job, Blue Planet’s stabilized hypochlorous acid quickly dissipates into a saline solution. It’s entirely benign and leaves no residue, yet kills bacteria, viruses and fungus. Blue Planet™ Hospital Grade Disinfectant features patented, environmentally friendly, cost effective and responsible chemistry, for the benefit of all end-users.”
That includes those in charge of disinfecting and cleaning such away-from-home settings as office buildings, airport terminals, schools, nursing homes, hospitals, veterinary clinics, doctor/dentist offices, restaurants, car rental facilities and cruise ships.In a first for a hospital grade disinfectant, recently Blue Planet™ Hospital Grade Disinfectant was awarded the Seal of Acceptance endorsement from the National Eczema Association, according to Epstein.
“Unlike other disinfectants and hand sanitizers that can damage and dry out skin, our Blue Planet product is actually beneficial for those with eczema or other dry skin conditions,” Epstein said. “The product is life affirming. It kills germs, while supporting healthy skin.”
Importantly, Blue Planet™ Hospital Grade Disinfectant has also been recognized by the Child Safety Network™, receiving its Safe Family Seal Of Approval. It has been selected as the CSN™ Safe Bus and Safe School disinfectant product, recommended for use in schools and school buses nationwide.
Ward Leber, founder and chairman of the Child Safety Network™ commented: “Over the past 32 years of national public service we have always challenged chemical companies to create a product that kills bacteria, viruses, fungi, and now COVID-19, without harm to our children, pets or the environment. Very few chemical companies even bothered to respond to that challenge. Instead, they decided to stick with the same old active ingredients that have been causing toxic, poisonous reactions in children for decades. Based upon the information provided to us by the makers of Blue Planet, and its rating with the EPA and CDC List-N, sustainable stabilized hypochlorous acid is without a doubt the safest disinfectant choice that we have discovered for schools and families everywhere, when used as directed. CSN™ now calls on all schools to get rid of the old toxins and use CSN™ recommended products that are safer for students, staff and the environment.”
SHELF-STABLE FOR 18 MONTHS
Most hypochlorous acid products are inherently unstable and once created, are only effective for a few days or a few months. Because of that, hypochlorous acid’s commercial applications have, up until now, been severely limited. The good news is, Clearly Better Solutions/Intercon Chemical have leveraged technology to produce Blue Planet™ Hospital Grade Disinfectant, which is shelf-stable for commercial use, featuring an 18-month shelf life.
“Blue Planet™ Hospital Grade Disinfectant is shelf-stable for 18 months,” Epstein said. “That makes it commercially viable to produce, package and ship throughout the country and around the world. It remains efficacious while stored in a distributorship’s warehouse and a customer’s location.”
Testing has shown that Blue Planet can be used with a spray bottle or electrostatic sprayer without losing its efficacy, and without leaving messy residue. Unlike other hospital grade disinfectants, there is no need to use personnel protective equipment during the electrostatic spraying process. A best-in-class Clearly Better companion electrostatic sprayer is now available from Clearly Better Solutions/Intercon Chemical.
