Infinity Ingredients is the UK distributor of HydroSal® BKC from Salvona.
BKC (Benzalkonium Chloride) extends protection from microbes, pathogens, bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa. It has consistently been the disinfectant of choice for hospitals. HydroSal® BKC was designed to achieve a better utilisation of BKC, while replacing alcohol-based antiseptics, at low concentration.
HydroSal® BKC is an encapsulation technology comprised of sub-micron spheres approximately 0.1 to 0.3 microns in diameter. These spheres are infused with BKC and form a clear product. The HydroSal® technology allows for time release and longerlasting effects, extending the time of protection from microbes.The product is effective upon application. In addition, it can be re-activated long after initial application, when exposed to water or perspiration. The shell is able to assemble and lock in the BKC while drying. Once in contact with water after drying out, the shell dissolves and exposes the BKC again.
This feature allows the system to provide maximum protection in areas that are exposed to cycles of dampness and dryness. The protection is needed most in damp/wet conditions becasue these conditions are favourable for bacteria growth, such as the under arm and foot. Suitable for sanitisers, disinfectants, anti-acne applications such as lotions and sprays, mouth washes and cleansers.
