ViroCLEAR hospital grade disinfectant for salons

Hospital grade disinfectant for salons saves the day

, by AussiePharmaDirect, 7 min reading time

For hairdressers and beauticians, who constantly have their hands in water and chemicals, it’s paramount to maintain the integrity of their skin to ensure it doesn’t get dry and cracked, as this can lead to skin irritation, infection and sensitised conditions such as atopic dermatitis. 

We all know that running a successful salon requires more than just great styling skills. It also requires a clean and safe environment for your clients. Close physical proximity is unavoidable in salons, and more often than not, the tools and equipment are reused for different clients throughout the day. 

With the world constantly changing, the hairdressing and beauty salon industries have faced significant challenges with hygiene and health concerns. Many individuals have become more aware of the importance of sanitation, and using hospital-grade disinfectants is one of the best ways to ensure cleanliness in the business premise, not only for the health and safety of the staff but also for the customers.

Go the natural way with a non-toxic disinfectant solution

For hairdressers and beauticians, who constantly have their hands in water and chemicals, it’s paramount to maintain the integrity of their skin to ensure it doesn’t get dry and cracked, as this can lead to skin irritation, infection and sensitised conditions such as atopic dermatitis.

Using disinfectants on top of that for the purpose of cleaning and disinfecting the salon space makes it more likely for hairdressers and beauticians to experience skin problems. Most hospital-grade disinfectants for salons are heavily chemically laden and the main culprit is usually because of the presence of alcohol, which can strip the skin of its natural oils and cause dryness and irritation.

But now there’s a new alternative that’s light on chemicals, but tough on germs and bacteria. Introducing ViroCLEAR - the revolutionary disinfectant that's changing the game in the fight against germs and bacteria, made in Australia.

It’s so effective, it’s just been approved by the Food and Drug Administration to export to the USA to help in its fight against coronavirus. The new export approval is estimated to be worth up to $420 million and could create 500+ new jobs in Australia. Talk about a high flyer!

The inventor, Ross Macdougald, was inspired to create ViroCLEAR for his wife Lucy who suffers from eczema. By incorporating extracts of native lemon bush and chamomile in the formula, he was able to reduce the active ingredient of benzalkonium chloride to only 0.12%, as compared to other products that contain up to 5% without compromising its ability to kill 99.99% of germs and bacteria and the coronavirus within 90 seconds of surface contact.

The active ingredient kills pathogens by punching holes in the cell wall by attracting the negatively charged pathogens, i.e., bugs, to it via its positive charge. However, this process is slow and unreliable, so BioInnovate, the company behind ViroCLEAR, developed the world’s first unique extraction system (CLECS) to accelerate and improve the process.

They knew that plants were able to conduct electrical impulses through their cellular structure using micro-nutrients (ions) as the vehicle for the electrical transfer. They then combined extracts they knew had large amounts of micro-nutrients with the active ingredient to create ARTG-listed ViroCLEAR hospital-grade disinfectant. 

Daniel Seldon, Managing Director of Aussie Pharma Direct who distributes ViroCLEAR, says most people don’t realise that alcohol and ethanol-based disinfectants and hand sanitisers take up to 10 minutes to kill COVID.

“Being able to kill the virus within 90 seconds makes all the difference, as in reality, no one is going to hang around and wait 10 minutes to be protected,” he says. 

Minimising the spread of COVID-19

Salons require close physical proximity between clients and hairdressers. While this makes it easier for you to make the perfect hairdo, it also increases the chances of transmitting respiratory droplets, which can spread diseases like the flu and COVID-19.

To minimise the spread of the disease, it is important to follow basic hygiene practices. This includes washing your hands regularly with soap and water, wearing a mask that covers your nose and mouth, and avoiding touching your face after touching surfaces or objects as they are more likely to be contaminated. 

It is especially essential for salon staff to wear masks as they play a powerful part in our protective arsenal against the invisible enemy.The AMD P2 mask is a top-notch choice that you can go for if you’re working in a salon because of its high-quality filter material that blocks 99.9% of particles. So, you can breathe easy knowing that you're getting the best protection out there. Plus, it's so comfy, you'll forget you're even wearing it! 

On top of these hygiene practices, regular sanitisation of tools and surfaces is also equally important to ensure that the salon is a safe premise to be in for everyone.

Which areas should be cleaned and disinfected, and how often?

High-touch surfaces are the main focus of your surface disinfection routine, from doorknobs to chairs in the waiting area. Make sure you have strict sanitation protocols in place for all equipment and tools too. Remember, no one wants to share nail clippers with a stranger. Frequently touched surfaces like these and others should be cleaned and disinfected at least once daily.

Will an antibacterial product kill COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a virus, not a bacterium, so antibacterial products will NOT kill it. As ViroCLEAR kills both viruses and bacteria, it will kill COVID-19.

What is the difference between hospital-grade and household-grade disinfectant?

Hospital-grade disinfectants are specifically designed to kill a wide range of harmful microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and spores that can cause infections in hospitals and other healthcare settings. They are also effective against antibiotic-resistant bacteria like MRSA and VRE.

Household-grade disinfectants are often formulated with less potent active ingredients that make them only effective against a narrower range of microorganisms. Usually, they contain additional ingredients like fragrances and other additives to make them more appealing to consumers. 

The government standards for hospital-grade disinfectants used in salons, health care and allied health settings are much higher than the standards for household-grade disinfectants. Therefore, a hospital-grade disinfectant is the only one to use for these types of professional environments.

Where can you buy ViroCLEAR?

ViroCLEAR hospital-grade disinfectant is available at Aussie Pharma Direct in 500ml and 5-litre bottles. There is also a whole other range of ViroCLEAR products that you can buy for more comprehensive protection.
