THD NewsDesk, VIRGINIA, USA: I2Pure, a US-based biotech company launched I2Cure, an antimicrobial bio-shield lotion in India on September 29. I2Cure is an iodine-based hygiene solution for hand sanitization that claims of 12-hour moisturization as opposed to the alcohol-based sanitizers that leave hands dry.
I2Cure is an FDA compliant and WHO GMP certified hand sanitizer that has been proven effective against coronavirus, bacterial and fungal infections as well.
Dr Jack Kessler, the mind that gave birth to the innovation of I2Cure said,
“I2Cure was established with a mission to provide the world with a product that gave more than just a short-term, superficial protection against germs and microbes. In order to accomplish this feat, we have created a formulation that has evolved with years of research to give us an edge over our faceless, microscopic enemy. I2Cure stands apart from other quick-fix topical disinfectants in that it uses molecular iodine, rather than abrasive alcohol, to protect your skin. I2Cure’s patented molecular iodine formulation is actually absorbed into the skin. It is then released as a vapour which transforms the skin of your hands into an antimicrobial material for up to 12 hours.”
Adding to this, Douglas Spitzz, Chief Executive Officer of I2Cure said,
“We are constantly striving towards formulating solutions that evolve to get the edge over our faceless, microscopic enemies. At I2Cure, we wanted to bring about a revolution. A solution to the hand-safety conundrum and we did. We developed a topical disinfectant with molecular iodine as the active ingredient. Iodine has been one of the oldest and most effective antimicrobial agents in medical practice. We have taken iodine’s efficacy a step further by delivering free molecular iodine into the skin. Moreover, there is no bacteria or virus resistant to iodine, so no drug-resistant pathogens are created.”
Molecular iodine has the quality to penetrate your skin for a longer period without leaving any stain or smell, allowing itself to nourish and moisturize the skin. The biocidal lotion is currently priced at Rs. 388, a notch above the cost of regular hand-sanitizers.
